  • Restaurants - Designate a special drink or dish and donate the sales for a day, week, or month.
  • Libraries and Bookstores - Curate a series of programs, displays, or reading selections centering on breast cancer awareness and survivorship. Feature art by survivors in your gallery or host survivors and physicians to speak about their experience.
  • Clubs and Organizations - Pass the hat at your next club meeting, feature a Hewitt Center for Breast Wellness speaker, or organize the membership to create their own fundraising event.
  • Municipalities - Government can get into the "Spirit of Pink" by decorating town greens and offices with pink ribbons, illuminating town buildings with pink lighting, and issuing proclamations for "Pink Month." All activities serve to promote downtown merchants and strengthen community pride.
