It is always tough in October on what to devote your time/ energy and valuable board space to. Halloween, and Pink in October, Movember, Thanksgiving, FSA, Christmas.. So many choices.. and what to do.
Thinking Pink is pretty important, today there are over over 1 Million 1160 teams who have raised over $437,000 in the fight against breast cancer with makingstrides.org
There are many things eyecare professionals can do to support the cause.
1.) Decorate a section in pink and devote to companies with Cancer Give Back Products.
2.) Wearing Pink T-shirts and other apparel. You can pick a Day of the week to do this for the month of October.
3.) Each person can wear pink Eyewear for the month.
4.) Have a Cancer Give Back Trunk Show.
5.) Have the Eyecare Team do a Breast Cancer walk. Not all walks are 2 or 3 days.
6.) Have the office support a Walking Team. Provide Pink T-Shirts, hats, water bottles.
7.) Have the office volunteer at a Walk. Plenty of walking stations to help.
Breast cancer will effect each of us in some way, friends, family or ourselves. Giving back to this important month can help save a few lives and many influence your patients.
