The Breast Cancer Charities of America is serving women across the nation through their Feeling Beautiful Again program. This service provides women who are battling breast cancer with a beauty bag of hope. If you or someone you know is battling breast cancer, request a free Feeling Beautiful Again bag!

The Feeling Beautiful Again kit, which comes in a reusable pink tote, is full of beauty products to make a woman feel feminine and beautiful again. Amongst the lip gloss, blanket, nail polish, and more, women will also find education information on breast cancer, a step-by-step workbook and the organization as a whole.

“We often hear that after losing a breast(s), eyelashes, hair and dealing with the skin changes that come with cancer treatments, a woman feels less feminine and less like herself,” said Erica Johnson, Founder and Executive Director of The Breast Cancer Charities of America. “With these Feeling Beautiful Again bags, we hope to help remind a woman that she is beautiful and strengthen her self-image.”

This little act of kindness can brighten a woman’s day and give someone struggling through the emotional and side effects of breast cancer a new lift on life.  If you or your company may be interested in setting up a ‘Beauty Drive’ to assist with collecting the items put into these bags, or if you know of someone who may appreciate or be in need of a Feeling Beautiful Again bag, please visit www.iGoPink.org/FeelingBeautifulAgain or call us (936)231-8460.

The Breast Cancer Charities of America is in the process of accepting applications for their iGoPink Scholarship, which is granted to students whose families have been affected by breast cancer.  The iGoPink Scholarship is a Houston-only program service of BCCA servicing our local community.

“So many patients that we service will reach out to us, saying that the thing they care about the most is that their breast cancer journey doesn’t impact their children.  Many fear that the costs of treatment may inhibit the family’s ability to send their child to college,” said Erica Johnson, Founder and Executive Director of The Breast Cancer Charities of America.  “That’s where the iGoPink Scholarship can step in and help these local families.”

Those awarded will not only receive the scholarship, but will also have the opportunity to be a part of a survivors photoshoot, produced by Holly Davis Photography, which will be featured on The Breast Cancer Charities of America’s webpage, sharing their survivor stories and testimonies with hopes to inspire other families who are going through the same struggles.

Recipients must live within 50 miles of Houston and have an immediate family relative who has been diagnosed with breast cancer in the last year. If you or someone you know is graduating this spring, learn more and apply by April 21st on our iGoPink Scholarship page.

Getting Started Tips

 

1. Personalize Your Fundraising Page

Let’s get personal! Update your online fundraising page to make it your own, to honor a friend or family member, and so that your page is easily recognizable to people that know you and your cause. You can add your own text, pictures, or even video!

Screenshot-2015-03-18-16.28.47

 

Remember, potential donors will be interested in your cause, but they are primarily interested in YOU. Make sure you tell them why you are getting involved and what your connection is to the Pink 5K and supporting women with breast cancer – it doesn’t have to be long!

Pink5K 2016

2. Self Donate To Your Page

Make a Donation to your OWN Page. Why? Friends, family and page visitors are more likely to donate to your page when they see that someone has already contributed. Donating some of your own money also demonstrates to potential campaign supporters that your are serious about helping the cause.

 

3. Update your Facebook profile to show your support!

Share your campaign with your friends, family and followers on Facebook! Simply choose the image or images you like, save the photo, and update your Facebook profile photos.

To save a photo, click and hold (Mac) or right mouse click (PC) on the image until a dialog box appears. Then select “save” to have your own copy of the image. You can then update your profile photos by uploading the image(s) on Facebook.

4. Share on Social

Now that you have updated your Facebook page photos, now it’s time to get social! Start fundraising through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and your other social media accounts with these tips:

  • Share the news. Post an update that you are attending the Pink 5K and fundraising to support women with breast cancer! Be sure to share your fundraising page URL, explain why you are supporting the cause, share inspiring stories, and encourage your family and friends to donate.

Save and share the images below with your personal message on your Facebook timeline:

Photo 1:

Photo 2:

Pink5k_TimelineImage-(men)

  • Create a Facebook Event. Setup your own Facebook event page, invite your friends, and post updates on your progress! Learn how to create your own Facebook event by clicking here.
  • Tag Your Friends and Donors. Start on Facebook by tagging those that have already donated and thanking them for their donations. When you tag someone your post gets shared in your activity feed and the other person’s activity feed too. This also sets the frame that people are already donating to your page!
  • Set Goals. $200 by one week, $400 by two weeks, etc. Use your social media accounts to update followers on your progress towards each goal and ask for people to help you get over the next hurdle.
  • Consider Gifts. Offer your own gifts to friends and family who helped you reach your goal. Or provide a raffle or prizes for certain giving levels. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, just a token of your appreciation.

Screenshot 2016-01-19 14.49.18

5. Individually Email 5-10 Closest To You

Ask family and friends for donations! Getting your “inner circle” to donate to your page will help you build up some momentum. It’s also good to start with the people you are most comfortable with. Don’t have their email? Send them a text!

Sample Email Fundraising Strategy:

  • Day 1 Email #1: Send 5-10 very close contacts (family and your closest friend or two).
  • Day 2 Email #2: Send to 10-15 close contacts (your entire circle of good friends).
  • Day 3 Email #3: Send to as many other contacts you feel comfortable sending a message to (co-workers, friends, friends of friends, distant relatives, your address book, etc.).

Remember to have fun and know that your all of your hard work is going to help support women battling breast cancer. Through the generosity of people like you, we can PRESS forward in the fight against breast cancer and continue our program services that focus on Prevention, Research, Education, Survival, and Support. Happy fundraising!

  10. Is the race ‘fur-baby’ (aka. Dog) friendly?

Fido is more than welcome to come with you but we ask for them to stay in the Rob Fleming Park area and not on our race paths. Although you may have the sweetest dog ever (that could outrun everyone for the 5k trophy), they can be suddenly spooked by people, crowds, etc and we want to keep all of our participants safe! But let your pup enjoy the pre-and post festivities as we love our supporters no matter if they’re adults, kids or fur-babies. (Who ever thought that Fido would look so cute in a pink tutu?? We’re just saying…get creative!!)

10985293_10152757707561205_1279454048145709369_o

  1. What happens if there is bad weather?

It is always our goal that the “event will go on”….however, if there is thunder or lightening, the safety of our participants is our TOP priority and concern!

  1. Is the event chip-timed?

The Pink 5k is a fun-run…no chip timing. We’re here to run (or walk) as fast as we can to beat breast cancer, but everyone is a winner no matter what the clock says. Come out and have a FUN time with us!

  1. What do I need to bring with me on race-day?

Simple check list would include:

  • Race bib & safety pins (which you will receive all at packet pick up)
  • Your Pink 5k t-shirt (if you like to wear it on the race path…otherwise get creative and make your own costume!)
  • Money or a credit card if you want to participate in the ‘Honor Wall’ (note: if you pre-purchased honor wall items online or at packet pick up, we will have them pre-posted and/or ready for you to personalize!)
  1. Can I change my shirt size?

We know that sizes can always be different (our t-shirts run very true to size). So we ask that you pick your best fit when you register. If it’s too big/small, you’re welcome to bring it to the registration tent on race day to see what sizes remain…but we like to keep true to our word: if you signed up for a size, we’re going to do our best to have that shirt size there for you!
