Those pink colored packages are making their way back onto the store shelves as Breast Cancer Awareness month (October) approaches. This is a great opportunity to save money on grocery items and support a great cause – a true Win – Win situation!
As one example, Proctor & Gamble is making a donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) for every P&G brand saver coupon redeemed next month. The National Breast Cancer Foundation’s mission is to save lives through early detection and to provide mammograms for those in need. In support of this program, grocery stores are running promotional deals on specific P&G products in October, so the savings can be significant when combined with the right coupons. You save more on the products you need, P&G and the grocery stores sell more product, and NBCF receives much needed cash to support outreach and services for women. Everyone benefits in support of a great cause.
Going above and beyond, P&G has teamed up with grocery stores to make cash contributions to NBCF. In the case of P&G and Giant, $30,000 was donated. In these recessionary times, this kind of corporate commitment to worthy causes is rare, so, if it is within your financial means and fits into your plans, you may want to give these sales opportunities some extra attention next month. Every little bit counts when it comes to saving the lives of our relatives, friends, and neighbors.
