Every year October, City Girl Vibe goes pink and tries to create awareness concerning the early detection that is breast cancer.
I love it when brands come up with ways to support breast cancer awareness and create campaigns where proceeds goes to organizations that help women fight this life threatening disease. Its so easy to lose sight and think that “it will never happen to me” but according to CANSA; Breast Cancer is the most common cancer in women of all races, with a lifetime risk of 1 in 35 in South Africa.
There are so many ways that you can support or create awareness when it comes to BC whether it is purchasing a ribbon, an item where all proceeds goes to an organizations that supports the cause, wearing pink clothes or makeup or even as simple as an SMS donating R20 by texting the word Pinkdrive to 40158.
