Awareness, education, advocacy, support, referrals, fundraising, teaching, learning, sharing, caring, crying, smiling … we can go on and on but you get the point! This is what we do every day; 365 days of the year; every year!
Today marks the start of a more intensive breast cancer awareness campaign – #Komen365 (follow it on Facebook and on Twitter). It’s not just a month to us; it’s a way of living every day … and we could not be more thrilled to have the national spotlight focusing on this issue over the next 42 days!
Our affiliate has a tremendous amount of activities, education, resources, fundraising, and events to share with you through November and it starts now with Share it Sunday! We’ll be posting sharable content on Facebook and Twitter each week through November 2. Take these graphics and maximize their reach by sending (sharing and re-tweeting) them to your social circles! You will see the hash tag #Komen365 throughout our campaign as well.
And it’s not just on Sunday … we’ll also provide:
– Myth Monday
– Talk about it Tuesday
– Webinar Wednesday
– Take Action Thursday
– Follow the Funds Friday
– Survivor Saturday
In addition, we’ll be revealing our new Faces of Komen each week as we round out this exciting program with Faces #16 through #20! We have our first Midwest Regional TweetChat on 09.23 and our Fall Mammogram Party on 09.28. There are fundraising events planned through the month as well as health fairs, educational presentations and TV segments as well. Click here for our event calendar!
We’ve tried to pack as much in to these 42 days as possible and we look forward to you joining the conversation online, in person and attending some of our events! Be sure to LIKE us on Facebook, FOLLOW us on Twitter, Instagram (@KomenKC) and this Blog too!
