October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! I know I’ve been seeing a lot of pink in the grocery isles. General Mills has teamed up with Komen organization to be Pick together!
Do you know anyone that has been touched by breast cancer?
Find hope. Be inspired. Know you are not alone. Join the 2011 Pink Together campaign - now in its fifth year of celebrating hope - by visiting to connect with a unique online community of people who have been touched by breast cancer and share a passion for the cause. Individually we are strong, but together we are stronger.
  • Visit to share your personal story and messages of hope and read about others´ personal journeys. To encourage personal connections, General Mills will donate $1 to the Komen organization for each Message of Hope that is sent to someone who has shared their story on (up to $25,000) during October. This is in addition to a $2 million donation General Mills is making to the Komen organization.
  • This year, for the first time in its five-year history, at consumers can choose how $1 million of this donation will be shared between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Visit from September 19, 2011 through April 14, 2012 to make your choice. Results will be announced on Mother´s Day 2012 - Sunday, May 13.
