As September quickly passes, we will be in October for what is annually called Breast Cancer Awareness Month. October is a month where everything is pink and everyone is helping to make a difference in a disease that touches so many women and men we love every day of the year.
If you are looking for something easy to do where you can make a difference the Office Bake Sale is the perfect non-event event you can do! The Office Bake Sale was designed to fit into your life easily! We hope once you know about our #OfficeBakeSale you will get your office involved and share it with all of your friends so they can do it in their workplace as well.
By now, you are wondering what is the #OfficeBakeSale and why it is so simple for “me” to do not only in October but any month of the year! Let me tell you a bit about it:
We realize that at offices across the country and in the world, the break room is a place where sweet treats are left, shared and enjoyed along with good conversation amongst co-workers. Now these treats that you bring in to your office can make a difference in the fight against breast cancer. It can raise money to support grants for breast cancer research.
During the month of October for every workday, we ask that you and your co-workers sign up on our calendar (which is available on our website) and agree to bring in a treat to your break room or break rooms on the day you select. This dessert can be homemade or if you are busy, you can easily purchase a dessert at your local supermarket. Leave it in your break room with the amount of the suggested donation each day; at the end of the month either make your donation online or mail in your check to Bakes for Breast Cancer. It’s very simple can do and can make a huge difference.
The more offices we have involved, the more we can raise, the more research we can support.
How do you get started and get your office involved?
