If you haven't seen millions of pink ribbons all month long, you must be from somewhere far, far away. Sometimes, I'm ashamed to admit, the ubiquity of them makes me forget what the whole point is. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so although I'm a little late to the party I am happy to get to tell you about a great way to make a difference. We're all human, so how about this: you can make a difference, help raise awareness about breast cancer, it won't cost you a penny and can even win something out of the whole deal.
Philanthropy at its finest.
If you haven't been to Planet Gear yet, you're missing out. They have incredible daily sales. When I say incredible, I do mean incredible. Seriously steep discounts, on a few brands each day. You have to be a member to shop, but the whole deal is free and definitely worth the 30 seconds it takes to sign up.
As a bonus, Planet Gear is donating $1 to breast cancer awareness for each person that "likes" them on Facebook or signs up for the free membership. Why not do both, and feel doubly good about your effort for the day?
As if they haven't made it easy enough, Planet Gear sweetened the pot by letting two of you win something in return. Up for grabs is a $25 shopping credit to use on anything you want from Planet Gear, and also a sweet pair of sunglasses. There will be two winners, and I'll pick them on November 1st, 2011. Even if you don't want to enter, please like them on Facebook and help raise awareness for Breast Cancer. One click - it couldn't be easier.
To win, you don't have to like me, follow me, heck, even know who I am. Just tell me in a comment that you either liked Planet Gear on Facebook, or that you signed up for the free membership at Planet Gear. If you're not a follower, or don't have a blog, that's fine. Just leave your email address so I can contact you if you win.
Just click "like", it will be a $1 donation, and in a week you might win something.
