Breast Cancer Awareness

The temperatures are gradually dropping,  and October is finally here!  We LOVE the fall colors – brown, gold, orange, red, and PINK!  Everywhere we turn, pink is covering products of all kinds – office supplies, clothes, makeup, food, etc.  It’s everywhere, and we just can’t get enough of it!  So, in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Sock It to me is joining the pink parade and teaming up with the National Breast Cancer Coalition to help find a cure!

Since its humble beginnings, Sock It to Me has packed a powerful punch, fighting its way from the weekend craft fair into the main ring at many retail stores across the country.  Now, it’s time to use that force against our biggest competitor yet – breast cancer, which claims the lives of tens of thousands of men and women across the country each year.

For the entire month of October 2011, YOU can choose from eleven awesome, pink sock designs, and Sock It to Me will donate 50% of the sales price to the National Breast Cancer Coalition fund.  There is no maximum contribution, so let’s “wow” NBCC with our Sock It to Me love and make a HUGE donation!

Our eleven pink styles are PERFECT for Breast Cancer fundraisers, including walks, runs, and bike rides, as well as everyday wear! Show off your matching team SITM’s in a local walk-a-thon or sport yours solo at a bike race! Whether you favor the spunky Pink Mustaches, the amusing Trifecta of All That is Awesome, or the classic Pink & Red stripes, you’ll be teaming up with Sock It to Me and the National Breast Cancer Coalition to knock the socks off breast cancer!

Check out our pink page on www.SockItToMe.com, and choose your own PINK SOCKS! Also, if you already own some PINK Sock It to Me’s – please email us photos of you donning your favorite PINK pair & outfit in support of Breast Cancer Awareness! We will be sending a special package with a few FREE Sock It to Me’s to the person who is best dressed for BCA!



Think Pink (breast cancer awareness)

I’ve never worked somewhere that hosted a “Pink Day“. But I like the idea a lot. Pink days, if you don’t know, are specified work days when employers encourage their team to wear pink, thereby increasing breast cancer awareness and, in most cases, raising money for the cause based on each individual item of pink worn.

Sounds so great! Of course, this is coming from someone who can wash a load of pinks every week (no joke). But still, great idea. Especially during the month of October, which is recognized every year as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month across the globe:

U.S. White House
Toyko Tower
Botanico Curitiba in Brasil

But in hopes of stirring up the idea of creating a Pink Day at your workplace, here are some stylie pink items (naturally starting with Sock It to Me socks) that you may want to work into your pink outfit… to also don at another time, of course:

Denim pencil skirt, $54 at www.americanapparel.com
Knit beanie, www.paulfrank.com
Cardigan, $148 at www.jcrew.com
Corral boots, $249.99 at www.sheplers.com
Scarf, $138 at www.anthropologie.com
Birdie Tank Top, $28 at www.frockboutique.com
Simple D Kay sneakers, $59.95 at www.nordstrom.com
Aviator sunglasses, $65 at www.betseyjohnson.com
Bomber jacket, $59.99 at www.modcloth.com
Cameo locket, $14.99 at www.fredflare.com

Sheesh! All this shopping has made me tired and hungry. For some reason I am craving cotton candy and bubble gum… At any rate, I encourage you to spread awareness through a Pink Day of your own. I’ve heard varying stats, but anywhere from one in four to one in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer.

Remember lost ones; fight for a cure. In loving memory of my Aunt Renee… xoxo, Becky
