Each year since I have started blogging my mind starts to think about October, I know it’s only the end of February but in all honesty my favorite month is October. The weather is not too hot nor cold. October is also breast cancer awareness month where a lot of bloggers and brands work together to spread awareness and find some way to give back to the cause. One year I had thought that I would do what some bloggers do, share their revenues with the cause by donating all ad profits or something similar. The thing is, I need the money I earn to support the kids, so each year I try to wrote posts and spread awareness in any way I can as my way to support breast cancer education.
This year, I am hoping that I can do more than just blog about breast cancer awareness, I am hoping that maybe I can do more to give back or partake in 5K’s to help raise funds for the cause. A 5K walk would be a fantastic way to raise funds while getting exercise and it’s something that my daughter and I could do together. Our last ColorSplash 5K walk was amazing because we completed the whole thing and raised funds to help the local Library Arts Center arts programs for the community.
Breast cancer does not just happen to females either, it’s a male issue too. What ways do you think I could take part in spreading more awareness and possibly raising funds to donate for breast cancer cures and awareness this coming October 2013? Would love to hear some suggestions.
