If volunteering or attending events aren’t really your thing, there are still ways to get involved in the fight against breast cancer and make a difference in a BIG way. Next time you’re in the grocery store, check out the Yogurt section and specifically take a look at Yoplait’s Pink Lids. You can enjoy all of your favorite flavors, while getting a serving of calcium and Vitamin D, and after you’ve enjoyed a yogurt or two, send your clean lids into our office. Yoplait will donate 10 cents from every lid to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, with a minimum donation of $500,000 this year.
This is the 12th year Yoplait has offered its “Save Lids to Save Lives” program to the public, and we couldn’t be more excited. Last year we received a check for $14,000 from Yoplait, which helped support breast cancer education, treatment and screening programs in Central and Southeastern Ohio.
So, the more lids you send in, the better. Think we can get to $20,000 this year? Please keep in mind those pink lids will only be in grocery stores through the end of October so take advantage of this program soon!
We also have bright pink collection boxes available if you’d like to set one up in your office or school and motivate others to help save lids to save lives. Let us know and we’ll arrange to get the boxes to you.
P.S. Please don’t forget to clean your lids. I love my job but sorting through old, yogurty lids is not my favorite part of the day. Ew!
