Because the Pink Ribbon Deserves More Than a Month…
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and since day one, we’ve been all-in on supporting this critical global cause, a cause that, for many of us at ePromos, hits a little too close to home.
While we’re proud to dig in and get the word out in October, this is a cause that’s too big to limit to a single month. One in eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetimes, and another 330,000 cases will be discovered this year alone – it’s staggering, it’s scary and it’s something we want front-and-center 365 days of the year, not just in October.
This year, our goal is to start the conversation and keep it going. To do that, we’ve rounded up five beat-breast-cancer-inspired products to help boost awareness. With these products you can show you’re committed to the cause, in October and every day.
These powerhouse products paired with our upcoming #ePromosCares campaigns are the first steps in the right direction – a direction we hope you’ll be part of to mark Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the ongoing battle against this wide-spread disease.
Pink shouldn’t be reserved just for October. Show your support, and your staff’s support, year-round with a Port & Company V-Neck Custom T-Shirt. Print your “Kick Breast Cancer’s Butt” message on one side, and encourage your team to don their tee, share shirts with clients and, of course, snap plenty of pics for social media – bonus points for a custom hashtag to track your year-long efforts.
“When it rains, it pours” – too often, the old adage is true. But with this pattern-changing umbrella, you’re sending a new message: “When it rains, we step up and show our support for breast cancer survivors and their families”. When this Mood Color Changing Custom Umbrella gets wet it turns from pink to pink ribbons – definitely a rainy-day convo-starter.
In reality, October is actually a drier month for most, so really, this umbrella is better suited as a spring or even summer premium (April showers, anyone?). And besides, who doesn’t love getting an umbrella? You always need one and never seem to have one when that first drop hits. Be the solution and spread the word – it’s the ultimate win/win.
We love snagging a great lip balm and, again, this is hands down a year-round essential. Between dry winter lips and burned summer lips, there’s always a big need for some serious soothing – exactly what this SPF 15 Lip Balm Tub delivers.
While you can brand and distribute these lip balms in a million different ways, we love leaving them out in waiting rooms, reception areas or other high-traffic spots, where your branded balms can do double duty. Think about it – people see the bright pink tub and know your company is part of the fight. Then they grab a balm and take it to-go, for a constant reminder of your brand and your breast cancer awareness message.
WRITE IT DOWN
Another consummate convo-starter: MopToppers® Breast Cancer Awareness Custom Stylus Pens, Designed to jot down notes on any touch screen, these “pens” are as cute as they are cutting-edge. And – BONUS – the “mop top” on these pens doubles as a screen cleaner, perfect for smartphones, tablets and computer screens.
Perfect for gift bags or other promotional giveaways, these soft, lightweight Custom Can Coolers keep drinks extra cold with an added layer of bling that gets noticed. Layer on your message and show of support and you’re good to go, and good to sip, any day of the year.
