October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and your company should be first in your community to step up and start helping out with the cause. Printed items to support breast cancer awareness should be ordered in advance.
Printed promotional items you can use as giveaways include:
People always appreciate extra items for use in their office. You can supply these items and raise awareness at the same time. Stick with the color pink, and add a message about breast cancer awareness along with your company name as sponsor. Think about donating a basket to local businesses, and don’t forget to ask local women’s health centers if they can use any.

- Printed pink wrist bracelets
- Pink ribbon caps
There are so many marathons, min-marathons, walks, jogs and runs for the Cure in October and surrounding months! Chip in and provide printed promotional items that bear the cause’s message. Offer to sponsor a local team participating in such an event if possible – or get together a team from your own company to pitch in.
