Pinktober: Have Hope & Give Hope

On average, 1 in 8 women and 1 in 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. In 2015, over 220,000 women and 2,150 men will be diagnosed in the United States alone, with a projected death toll of over 40,000. With such high development rates, breast cancer is real and it affects us all.

This month, let us stand together to remember the people who have lost their lives, those who have survived, and those who are still fighting the battle. We cannot deny that breast cancer is a serious threat to the world’s population. We cannot deny that our support is needed to help find a cure. We cannot deny early detection and treatment for those diagnosed. And we certainly cannot deny that it’s time we have hope and give hope.

Whether you are a wedding planner, caterer, or a photographer, you have the opportunity to help raise awareness and give hope to those who are battling or who’ve battled breast cancer. And the Inspherio Crew could not be more supportive of the cause. As we strive to find a cure, one of the hardest parts is knowing what we can do to help. Here at Inspherio, we’ve been thinking of several different ways to raise awareness and educate others on breast cancer. Between our campaigns and our efforts on social media, we have some ideas on how you can raise awareness and funds to find a cure for breast cancer.

Host an Awareness Event

Doing what you do best—planning an event—can be the best way to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer. Many sponsors are searching for an event professional to help plan, cater, or provide entertainment for their breast cancer awareness event. We suggest brainstorming ideas and reaching out to potential leads to inform them of your services.  

Special Service

Dedicate one of your services or plan to donate a small portion of your profits to finding a cure for breast cancer. By using the Inspherio pricing package feature, we can even help you keep track of the amount you’ll be able to donate.

Donate Your Time

You have the opportunity to make a difference, whether it’s racing in a 5k for a cure, donating money to a few of these reputable charities like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, or being part of a support group. No action or donation is too small to help make a difference. So don’t hesitate to give one, today. 

Let’s continue helping our neighbors; let’s find a cure to prevent this disease from taking more lives. It’s time for the ratios of 1 in 8 and 1 in 1,000 to disappear. It’s time to beat breast cancer once and for all.
