Using Promotional Products to Support Breast Cancer Awareness

1. Fundraising

Promotional products are a great way to raise funds for breast cancer research, education, and future awareness efforts. Choosing breast cancer awareness merchandise that people will find fun or useful, such as custom bags & totes or fundraising kits with an inspirational message or your organization’s logo is a great first step.

In addition to bags and totes and kits, the best categories for fundraising include:

2. Education

Use promotional products to educate people on risk factors, signs and symptoms, and early detection. Education is one of the best ways to increase the rate of early detection and connect those in need with resources in their community. Promotional products such as calendars and bookmarks can help share the name, address, phone number or website of informational resources that people can use to learn more about the disease.

In addition to the products above, these categories are also very effective in spreading an educational message:

4. Community Events

Host, sponsor or participate in an event in your community in support of a person who is fighting the disease or an organization that directly helps with research, resources, education or awareness for Breast Cancer. Charity 5K Walk/Runs and car washes are excellent examples of this. Hand out branded bottles of water and add a personalized tag with your logo to each one for an added touch.

Or, hand out custom printed items to keep people thinking about breast cancer prevention long after the event is over:

Recipients will be reminded of the impact of their support every time they use these items and may encourage them to participate again next year.
