As most recognize, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In our effort to support this cause, BlueGrace decided to join forces with The Pink Daisy Project. The Pink Daisy Project isn’t dedicated to raising funds for research or awareness like other organizations (although important). Its focus is to help young women cope with the hardships of breast cancer treatment by providing comfort and care. The Project offers these women unique services that are often forgotten in their times of need. Things like housecleaning, groceries and assistance with prescription costs are some examples of the kind of relief that the organization brings. For more info about The Pink Daisy Project please visit PinkDaisyProject.com.
Friday, October 21st has been declared our Breast Cancer Awareness Day. On this day, employees are encouraged to wear pink apparel, bring in a minimum of a $5 donation and bring in a “Pink” dessert for our “Pinkluck Bake-off”. The donations collected will be matched by the company and donated to the Project. Throughout this week, different facts regarding the disease will be tweeted and spread throughout the office to raise awareness. In addition to the bake-off, funds and facts, we are also collecting Dannon and Yoplait yogurt lids (to “Save Lids to Save Lives” and “Cups of Hope”). For more info on what Dannon and Yoplait are doing to support this cause, check out their web-sites at Cups of Hope and Save Lids to Save Lives.
