Pink Lids Save Lives

They do.  They really do.

Yoplait Yogurt lids lead to an annual contribution to breast cancer research of up to $2 million!

Every year for the past few years, Yoplait yogurt and MyBlogSpark have provided some excellent incentives to bloggers to remind folks of the Pink Lids campaigns that always comes up around Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

This year's theme is "Save Lids to Save Lives."  And now, lids may be submitted through Dec. 31, 2011 electronically!

I have to admit that I'm a fan of all Yoplait does.  I think this company donates and does more for cancer survivors and fighters than any other.  That they target Breast Cancer -- which touches one in eight women -- is especially significant to me, as a woman, as a friend of many survivors, and as a grand-daughter of two women who both died because of this form of cancer.

So here is a sassy little giveway for you!

MyBlogSpark has sponsored and will provide one reader of my blog with the adorable items above.  In addition to two cups of yogurt (yum) there are some wonderful breast cancer awareness products and a lid container collector.  I passed mine on to my students who are working on an awareness event.  They plan to collect lids the night of the event!

So here's your chance.  Post a comment and a shoutout to someone who's a real fighter -- someone who you would save lids to save lives for!

My someone is Patti Weimer.

Just back into blogging after too long. Catching up on yours has been refreshing! I am especially touched by this entry.

Patti Weimer is also one of the many women I know who have earned the title "Fighter."

Others include:
Mrs. H.

All of these women touch the lives of so many as they continue to march in the battle against this dreadful disease.

Then there is Pam. She is no longer marching, but cheering from Glory. Her fighting spirit lives on in the life of her children and grandchildren.

One by one, day by day, others join the fight. Wouldn't it be grand to declare victory so no more would be forced to join the battle?
