Breast Cancer Charms

Breast cancer charms do a lot more than raise money for cancer research. Breast cancer charms also help to spread awareness. I wonder just how often women notice someone else wearing breast cancer pins or pink breast cancer ribbons, then remember that it's been too long since their last self-exam?

I wonder how many women are reminded to make an appointment for a mammogram after seeing breast cancer charms on a coworker's wrist or a friend's necklace? There is no doubt in my mind that breast cancer awareness jewelry has saved lives. We all need a gentle reminder from time to time, to take care of ourselves, and to take care of others.

Breast Cancer Charms as Fund-Raisers

Breast cancer pins, charms, and ribbons make wonderful fund-raisers. Do you head up an athletic team, choir, or other club? Are you looking for a worthy cause to raise funds for? Instead of washing cars or selling candy bars this year, why not sell breast cancer awareness jewelry?

Of course, if car washes and candy sales are a comfortable part of your fund-raising repertoire, you can always give the profits from these activities to cancer research. You can give commemorative pins or jewelry to all who participate. This is a worthy cause that affects so many millions of women, their friends, and their family members.
