What is #GivingTuesday & Double Donation Day?


Giving Tuesday happens the Tuesday after Thanksgiving! Here is a blurb about #GivingTuesday, direct from their website:

#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration.
Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.

How does Bravelets support #GivingTuesday? We mark this day as our annual Double Donation Day! This is your chance to raise double the donations for each purchase towards the cause of your choice. Give back 20% with each purchase. Read more on our website here

How can you get involved?


SUPPORT YOUR FAVORITE CAUSES

Purchase a few items from your favorite Brave Page! Use our search bar to find the type of cause, or the specific brave page. Pick your favorite items, in your favorite colors, and voila - you've donated 20% of your purchase to the Brave Page you chose!


START YOUR OWN FUNDRAISER

Start your own fundraising page for a personal cause or non-profit you care about! Share the link with all your friends, family, and community to raise double the donations! Find out more here

Don't have time read all that? No worries! 

1. Buy as many Rice Krispie treats that you need from the store
2. Buy colored candy melts (or white chocolate + food coloring)
3. Buy Candy eyes (usually in the baking section by the candles)

Unwrap, dip, stick they goofy eyes on...you're good to go!

Why It Is Important to Get Your Mammogram

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and while the nation shares it's support by sporting pink everything, we also want to take a moment to remind you why this month is so important. 

Breast Cancer affects so many women in our lives, and annual mammograms can detect cancer early. For every 1,000 women who have a screening, 5 are diagnosed with breast cancer (MammographySavesLives). That is a large number of women being diagnosed, but just think about all the women who may not be getting a screening this year. 

Bravelets wants to send out a reminder to all the brave women we know to schedule your appointment. Early detection makes breast cancer treatment easier! Mammograms can literally save your life. The procedure is quick and non invasive. We invite you to be brave and make the call.

What to Say (And Not Say) When Someone Has Cancer

Cancer sucks. We’ll say it. The hard times aren’t easy and you may not always know how to navigate the uncomfortable conversations or situations.

Our intention with these suggestions is to offer ways to approach a sensitive situation with care. Sometimes we say things that are well intentioned but may be off-putting.












Please leave a comment to tell us what’s worked and hasn’t worked for you and give us feedback on these suggestions.
