You may have heard that October is breast cancer awareness month. This a great opportunity to raise awareness and money to save lives. Now that’s something we can all put some effort into right? Right!
So the corporate folks over at Masterfoods have released Pink M & M’s to support the cause and just in time for Halloween no less. You buy a bag of 14 oz. M & M’s and 35 cents goes to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Splurge on the 21 oz. bag and the bounty goes up to 50 cents.
Now we all know what women mean to all of us (although approx 1% of all breast cancers occur in men as well), and among those that love women are little kids. And little kids like candy right? And little kids will be collecting candy and dolling it out in just a few short days for Halloween right? Right! So go out to to one of those big box warehouse stores where you buy in Army/Navy quantity and buy some pink M & M’s!
In the mean time, if you’re a blogger then go ahead and put up a post about this before you run down to the store. Carl Chapman, a blogger I just became acquainted with from another blogger friend of mine has gone on a blog strike until 25 other bloggers put up a post about this. If it counts, this will go up on all our blogs, however meager their traffic, because dammit, it’s the thought that counts.
Thanks to Carl and Ami I’ll be making pink M & M’s my sole distribution for Halloween this year.
