We’ve all heard of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but have you heard of #GivingTuesday? #GivingTuesday is about giving back—it’s about donating your time or supporting a cause you believe in.  

This Tuesday, we ask that you give back and choose the Orange County Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure as your charity to support.

Komen Orange County has helped thousands of women receive access to breast health care by linking them to mammography screening and breast cancer diagnostic assistance, breast health education, awareness and support programs. With your help, we can continue to serve women and save lives.

There are a number of ways to help in the fight against breast cancer. Here are a few ideas:

DONATE: With your help… wives, mothers, sisters, and friends will have access to life-saving screening and treatment.  Your gift will support breast health programs for local women who live in Orange County. Your gift, no matter the size, has the power to save a life. Donate now by clicking here.

VOLUNTEER: Call our office to see what you be a part of the cure. We have all kinds of projects we need help with — from answering telephones to planning events.

RALLY FOR THE CURE:
Rally for the Cure is a grassroots program that works to spread awareness about breast health and breast cancer in support of Komen. The goal is to empower people to join the fight against breast cancer by educating their friends, family and community on the importance of early detection through volunteer organized golf, tennis and social events. Spin, yoga, golf, you name it…you can take your favorite hobby and turn it into a great breast health awareness event. Click here for more details.

ADVOCATE: The Susan G. Komen for the Cure® Advocacy Alliance takes a stand on issues of importance to cancer survivors, advocates, and others involved in the movement. Primarily, our positions relate to breast cancer research, early detection, and access to high-quality care. Join the movement and help make a difference!

DESIGNATE KOMEN OC WITH A GOLD CHECK:  
If you’re an Orange County Register subscriber here’s how you can help. The Register is issuing $12.4 million in “gold cheques” to its 7-day subscribers allowing them to designate the charity they wish to support. Click here for more details.

However you choose to give back, we hope you will support Komen Orange County and help us end breast cancer forever.
