This is a sponsored conversation between Valpak Coupons and The Frugal Navy Wife. All opinions remain my own.
Most people know someone at some point in time that has had breast cancer. Breast cancer affects lives in more ways than we want it to. I know far too many people who have suffered from breast cancer and I want to do what I can to make sure a cure is found. This is why I’ve made it my mission to get involved where I can with the Susan G. Komen Foundation. I’ve also partnered with Valpak Coupons to help spread awareness!
How to Get Involved with Breast Cancer Awareness and Valpak Coupons
I have known a few people affected by Breast Cancer in my life but it has never struck home more than when it hit my mom… twice. Yes, she is a two time breast cancer survivor and you can read her breast cancer story here.
My grandmother also had breast cancer when I was very young, around 1991 so I grew up learning about it. There is also another person in my life currently undergoing treatment who isn't ready to share her story but we are all praying for her (you know who you are!)!
So how can you get involved this year?
Nominate a Hero
Valpak will be distributing a pink envelope and within this envelope is something special. A celebrity that you and I know as Sandra Lee will be known as a “More Than Pink Hero.” Sandra is a breast cancer survivor and an advocate for women’s health.
Customers like you and I can get involved by nominating someone who has taken action in the fight against breast cancer. In October, Valpak will share stories from those that have been submitted and there will be 25 lucky winners!
Each winner will get a set of pink Kitchenaid Appliances, which includes a stand mixer, blender, 2-speed hand blender and a 5-speed hand mixer with a total retail value of over $800. 500 other winners will be getting an immersion blender thanks to KitchenAid.
These winners will know they won by finding a die-cut certificate in the shape of an immersion blender in their Valpak Envelope.
Valpak Turning Pink
To raise awareness of breast cancer, Valpak is turning their blue envelopes pink this October. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This will also be the time for 500 lucky recipients to know if they won the immersion blender. Make sure you check your Valpak coupon envelopes!
You can see that Valpak has a commitment, along with many other companies to help join the mission of Susan G. Komen. Raising awareness about breast cancer is so important and Valpak values this mission. This partnership supports men and women who may develop breast cancer at any given time. In 2018, you can expect to see Valpak donate $50,000 to the Komen foundation.
You may be wondering how you can get involved with the commitment of Susan G. Komen and Valpak. There are many events you can get involved in your community.
- Race for the Cure
- More Than Pink Walk
- Komen 3-Day
Don’t forget to check your Valpak envelopes and get involved in Susan G. Komen events near you!
I am a Wife, mom to 4 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
