Give a Mammogram – Daily.

Fund Free MammogramsA number of years ago I stumbled upon The Greater Good Breast Cancer site

The site allows you to make a daily click of a “Fund Free Mammograms” button and be a part of gifting a mammogram to a woman in need.  It’s completely free, no gimmicks, no spam.  The site also features an online store that has great prices on unique jewelry and other crafts that further support the site’s charities.

Still not convinced?  Here are some facts:

GreaterGood began in 1999 to provide support for worthy causes through easy, online actions. Since its launch, GreaterGood has contributed nearly $30 million to charities around the world.

Each cause-related website (there are many) partners with nonprofits to provide support through many different easy actions, including a free, fast ‘click’, shopping, and through the Gifts That Give More™ online donation program.

Currently, all donations generated by GreaterGood activities are distributed by, a 501c3 nonprofit. Each year, grants go to more than 130 charities working in the United States and worldwide.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

So for your beloved breast cancer survivors may I suggest that you not only “Think Pink” but also Give Pink!

I’ve just come off a long weekend at my sorority’s regional conference (shout out to the Atlantic Region of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.) and if there’s one thing that over 15 years of sorority life have taught me it’s the importance of colors and accessories.

Well breast cancer survivors belong to an awe-inspiring sisterhood and they have adopted the color pink to represent them.

So this month give pink with these lovely accessories that I came across on Coach Factory, Coach’s online factory store, today.

He or She is a Boss and should be celebrated…

So first of all let me say that a card, even a group card, will do just fine.

But keep in mind that if your boss is great (and not everyone is so lucky), you may want to go a little bigger.

So keep it nice and workplace appropriate by treating your boss to coffee (or tea, or whatever their morning beverage of choice will be) at his or her favorite retail cafe via gift card.  Throw that gift card in a new mug and you’ve got a winner.

If you’re going in on a group gift, I suggest that you make it a group celebration and do what I affectionately term a “Bagel Breakfast”.  Get $2 from every member of your team, buy a box of bagels and a vat of coffee, and treat your boss to a surprise office party in his or her honor.
