ByAnnie's Annual #SewPINK Initiative™
Breast Cancer Awareness Month (Go To 2019 Blog Hop Calendar)
Nearly 70% of the ByAnnie community - our customers, staff, and friends - are within the highest risk factor for breast cancer. Not only that, 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Many members of our ByAnnie family have witnessed their loved ones endure countless treatments and make painful goodbyes.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), and ByAnnie.com is proud to join the cause of awareness with the #SewPINK™ initiative. Raising awareness can be fun and substantial, that is why each year we will host a blog hop featuring celebrity bloggers from the global sewing community. We are raising awareness to support the millions of families, friends, and loved ones in their breast cancer journey.
Along with raising awareness, ByAnnie is committed to raising money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
We will be donating 30% of profits on all PINK products, such as zippers, mesh, and more from the online store to BCRF.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the sewing community to engage with one another AND have fun! Show your support by including pink items in your projects and share on social media with the #SewPINK™ hashtag.
You can catch up on the different BCAM projects of #SewPINK2019, and learn more about the disease and the many ways you can help.
Knowledge is power! The more we learn about breast cancer, the more we should share with our loved ones. The most important thing we can do with the #SewPINK™ initiative is to get as many people involved as we can to help raise awareness.
Daily Social Media Prizes
To reward those that help promote awareness, ByAnnie will give one $15 ByAnnie.com coupon each day (M-F, we need weekends, too). Winners will be announced each day by 4PM Mountain Time.
Whether it's a personal story or a project relating to breast cancer awareness, we want to see your creativity in action! If you want ideas, our celebrity bloggers have a variety of fun projects coming out this month during the blog hop.
