Keeping up with my promise to find every possible way to give back to foundations raising money to find a cure for cancer, today I have partnered with the JCPenney Salon to share with you the promotion they’re running in October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I was so fortunate to be part of this campaign last year and right after I had agreed to join the campaign we found out my cousin Lina was diagnosed with cancer and I knew that I was asked to be part of this for a reason. Similar to last year’s event, the JCPenney Salon will be donating 20% of their retail sales on October 20thand 21stto the American Cancer Society for up to $50,000!!! Another way to give back for the entire month along with any service, you can give a straight donation and can be entered into a raffle to win a basket full of products! As for me, this year I opted to receive a blow out for this campaign and I love that while I was sitting in the chair, I knew that it was for a great cause and that I was giving back to an organization I love and so strongly believe in and support.
I realized while working on this campaign what a wonderful thing it is to have such huge retailers like JCPenney supporting such incredible causes and spreading awareness like this. I feel thankful to have this opportunity to work with companies and brands like this who so firmly believe in giving back to the community. It is so easy to feel so small in this world, especially when you are fighting a battle like breast cancer or any cancer for that matter, so when you see huge companies supporting you whether it seems big or small it can make a world of difference. I know I am just one person, just one blog, one social media channel – but imagine if we ALL walked into JCPenney on October 20thor 21st, posted about it, and dedicated a post to those we love who are currently fighting cancer and what an impact that could have. I know that for my Mother in Law and my cousin, every word of encouragement, someone buying them a pink ribbon pin, or someone honoring them in a social post can lift their spirit and their heart and they are reminded why and what they are fighting for. Imagine if we all did this for each other!
Thank you to JCPenney for choosing me to be part of this mission. My loyalty to you is so strong because I know you care and I see how much this cause and fight means to you.
To my readers, lets all join together and share how we give back and support our loved ones today and every day!
To my Mother in Law and cousin Lina, this post is for you. I love you, I honor you, and I support you always.
