Valpak Goes Pink For Breast Cancer Awareness {+ A #Pak4ACure Sweepstakes}

This post is sponsored by Valpak.


"It's cancer."

Two simple words... yet, they have the ability to completely change your world.

For me, those words were for my mom. During a routine self exam, she had discovered a lump and went to the doctor to have it checked into... the results were something that no child ever wants to hear from their parent. We had sadly lost many other family members to various types of cancer, and so hearing those words lead to a lot of fear and uncertainty.

Thankfully, she caught it early and has been cancer free for many years... but with every annual appointment, it still carries that fear.



Needless to say, breast cancer awareness is a cause that is very near to me. Because of the improved research, treatment options and early detection, death rates have decreased greatly for those diagnosed with breast cancer. This is in large part thanks to Susan G. Komen. All October long, we are surrounded by pink everywhere as numerous companies have partnered to raise awareness and join in Komen's mission 'to save lives by meeting the most critical needs in our communities and investing in breakthrough research to prevent and cure breast cancer.'

Today, I'm excited to share with you one of the newest companies to join the fight. Valpak has joined the community of bold companies that share in the vision of Susan G. Komen for a world without breast cancer.



They are amplifying the awareness by turning their usual blue envelope PINK this October for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. They will also be working to raise local awareness within the communities that they serve, as well as funds in support of the fight to end breast cancer.

Not only is the envelope going pink, it will also be highlighting a 'More Than Pink® Hero': Sandra Lee- a celebrity chef, breast cancer survivor and advocate for women's health advocate and introducing a can't miss sweepstakes.

Nominate a hero in your life who has taken action in the fight, and throughout the month of October, Valpak will share the submitted stories.  25 lucky winners will be chosen to each receive a set of pink KitchenAid appliances in support of Cook for the Cure®. The set includes a stand mixer, blender, 2-speed hand blender and a 5-speed hand mixer with a total retail value of over $800. Amazing, right? What More Than Pink Hero wouldn't love that!?



It doesn't stop there though. The nationwide October Valpak envelope will also feature a special surprise for 500 lucky recipients, who will instantly win an immersion blender courtesy of KitchenAid by looking through their pink Valpak envelopes and finding a die-cut certificate shaped like an immersion blender. Wow! What an easy way to win, right? Just open your mail, check out the great savings inside and see if you're one of the lucky ones!

We love receiving our Valpak any time of year, but are especially excited to see this amazing partnership that has been developed to support women and men alike who have or will develop breast cancer, as well as those who love them. In 2018, Valpak will donate at least $50,000 to Komen and are encouraging donations and support through their local and corporate partners. With so many partners across the nation, I cannot help but think of the amazing impact this could make on the fight against breast cancer.

How else can you help? Join the Valpak team and race for the cure in your community through one of three fantastic events:

Race for the Cure: The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure® Series is the world's largest and most successful education and fundraising event for breast cancer ever created. The series of 5K runs and fitness walks raises significant funds and awareness for the breast cancer movement, celebrates breast cancer survivorship and honors those who have lost their battle with the disease. The Komen Race Series welcomes people of all ages and fitness levels, from walkers to elite runners.
More Than Pink Walk:  A handful of locations across the country were chosen to pilot test a new Susan G. Komen More Than Pink® Walk event, which along with a new name, will include a fresh new look and experience, focused on energizing the community around the lifesaving work Komen’s supporters make possible. This change is part of the ongoing evolution of Susan G. Komen and builds on Komen’s successful and engaging More Than Pink brand platform first introduced in 2016 with the premise that if pink = awareness, then More Than Pink = action. Being More Than Pink is a proactive call to do more in the fight against breast cancer - MORE for research, MORE for our communities, MORE for caring for those living with breast cancer – especially metastatic breast cancer – and give MORE encouragement to take action to find the cures.
Komen 3-Day: A three-day, 60-mile walk that’s making a real difference in the fight against breast cancer. In 2016, Susan G. Komen® announced a Bold Goal—to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50% in the U.S. by 2026. That’s why we walk, and why we raise money—to make that goal a reality.
