BC Breast Cancer Awareness Day is just around the corner and as a local Vancouverite I thought a little inspiration to give was due.
I could spout facts and figures about breast cancer, give you tips on how to do a self exam, 10 ways to volunteer or donate to support the research that will one day cure breast cancer. But instead I thought a few remarkable videos may get the message across.
This videos will teach you how to do a breast exam (and make you laugh out loud)
The videos will make you feel like dancing in the streets.
The women will inspire you to give a little more.
Just one image may change the way you think about breast cancer
and how you will give today.
Your involvement and support of BC’s Breast Cancer Awareness Day will help change the lives of women across Canada. If you want to be part of this special day consider attending the 20th annual Awareness Day luncheon. You will have a chance to hear keynote speaker René Syler - renowned parent blogger, as Good Enough Mother - talk about her journey through a controversial preventive mastectomy surgery. (read her story on Oprah.com)
Find your own way to give to support breast cancer. Whether you volunteer, donate, spread awareness or talk openly about it. The more we talk about what is killing us the more people will do something about it. Favourite the videos on You Tube, Tweet, share on Facebook and remind the world that we care for all that have suffered and all that have died.
Breast cancer is not a secret, it’s not a bad word – it’s the reality we are living every day. On May 3rd be aware and give generously.
365give launched on a simple premise: One person wanted to create positive change in a world; One person wanted to leave a legacy of giving; One person wanted to create a movement that would mobilize people to give back every day of their lives.
- 365give is simply an online diary of one woman’s actions and impact in changing the world every day for 365days.
- 365give has the potential to create a movement of giving and a community of committed “givers” that can educate and inspire future generations.
But for this to really make a difference – I need you.
Imagine if everyone did one thing everyday for the next 365 days.
We would be the change, we would have a better world.
