Giveaway: Sam’s Club Pink Promotion + $25 Sam’s Club Gift Card

Hey y'all! (Do I sound Southern yet?)

I'm still adjusting to the Southern life, but I'm actually loving the slight change of pace here in mid- Tennessee. Before I jump back into blogging (to tell you all how hard it's been to establish a new fitness routine when I really loved the old one), I am going to tell you about how Sam's Club is helping further a cause I hold near and dear to my heart. As of last month, my sister-in-law is officially 9 years cancer free! Not all women are so lucky. This month (which is already halfway over...so hurry!), Sam’s Club stores will feature exclusive pink packaging on some of your favorite participating General Mills products in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Here's how you can help!

Give back by purchasing your favorite cereal or snack! This October, by making simple everyday purchases at Sam’s Club, you can help support breast cancer education and research. Sam’s Club stores now feature exclusive pink packaging on some of your favorite participating General Mills products in recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

-For 5 years, General Mills has partnered with the Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Foundation to bring breast cancer support to local communities, and this year they are making their annual donation of $2 million to the foundation to advance breast cancer research and support education and community outreach projects.

-Purchase specially-marked General Mills products like Cheerios and Fiber One 90 Calorie Brownies at your local Sam’s Club and help decide how half of that contribution will be donated by voting at PinkTogether.com from now until April 14, 2012.

-General Mills’ donations will be divided between two important Komen programs: the Treatment and Assistance Program, which assists women in securing care they otherwise may not be able to afford, and Prevention Research, which helps unlock the keys to preventing breast cancer. Voting results will be announced on Mother’s Day 2012.

To me personally, this cause means a lot. I'm a girl, I have a girl, my mom and sister are girls...obviously I'd love to do what I can to support this cause! I also love cereal and shopping at Sam's so hey, it doesn't even sound that hard to do! ;-) Thanks for the giveaway. runner_girl5k at yahoo dot com

It's personal to me because I have boobs :P No it's personal because my grandmother is a survivor.

It's personal because it's all about us girls. I'd absolutely support and help.

Although no one in my family has had breast cancer, my mother had a friend who passed away from it. I think as women it means something to all of us.

I have an aunt and a childhood friend who are both now survivors of breast cancer. It seems with each passing year it is hitting closer and closer to home.

It's personal to me even though I don't know anyone affected by it, or myself, but because it can happen to anyone, at any time in their life.

I have a lot of friends who have family members that have been affected by the disease and I know how devastating it has been for them. Anything I can do to support this cause I am all for it! Thanks for the chance to win!
