As I am sure most of you have heard by now, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. A cause that almost all of us have been affected by in some way or another, either directly or indirectly. Each year one of my favorite companies, Hanes, teams up with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation on behalf of raising awareness for breast cancer and helping to find a cure for this horrible disease that affects so many.
This year they have come up with a fun and interactive way for everyone to get involved. You can design and buy your own Hanes shirts for Komen for the Cure. Below is just a small sampling of the different ways you can design a shirt for yourself or a loved one:
The Hanes Design and Buy program allows visitors to design their own T-shirts adorned with messages of hope, love and support. Additionally, Hanes will donate 10 percent of the proceeds from all custom T-shirts through the Design and Buy program to Komen for the Cure. If you aren’t the creative type (speakin of myself here) you can browse through the hundreds of designs that have already been done by people all over the country and choose one of those. There are some really great ones, I have looked at everyone of them and saw many that I would love to have. I hope that each of you will get involved in spreading awareness and hope during this Breast Cancer awareness month by uploading and buying your own t-shirt creations. This is a fun and interactive way to support a great cause for a small price.
Also, for the second year, Hanes will offer its “Pink Collection” of panties, bras, socks, and tees designed to create awareness for the cause. As part of the collection, Hanes spokesperson and film star Melina Kanakaredes has designed three T-shirts meant to inspire and encourage others to join her in the fight against breast cancer. One of the things that I have LOVED seeing this month is all the football players wearing pink socks. It is great seeing these guys go all out in supporting friends and family members.
