Last Friday, Konnect PR hosted our very first Breast Cancer Awareness Breakfast, complete with pink waffles and mimosas for the LA office. We wanted to raise awareness and donations for Breast Cancer, because it has sadly become a part of so many women’s lives, either personally or through friends and/or family.
Spreading awareness for something as apparent in our world as breast cancer becomes very important as it is the leading cancer diagnosis for women. It is known that 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. This is where spreading the word becomes effective; prevention and early detection are very important, and can save lives!
Our breakfast was quickly posted to Konnect’s social media platforms using hashtags: #BreastCancer, #BreastCancerAwarenessMonth and #BCAM. Many women in the office also shared and posted photos and videos of their own to help spread awareness to women everywhere.
After we ate our strawberry-covered waffles, Estela Weinmann, a member of our Fun Committee announced our total donations: “Together, with Konnect PR, we will be donating $675.00 to breast cancer research through the website breastcancer.org.” All the donations came directly from the pockets of our office that day and that is a number to be proud of!
