Happy Fall, everyone! We hope you’re enjoying the nice weather. Ok, we usually cringe when people talk about the weather but this is an exception because we absolutely love October. Wearing sweaters, watching the leaves change, buying pumpkins.
Another big part of October that’s much more serious, and highly important, is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Throughout the month, you’ll notice hundreds of companies and organizations showing their support in a variety of ways from hosting events and 5Ks, to selling limited edition pink products, all designed to increase awareness of Breast Cancer, encourage women to take charge of their health and support those who have been affected by the disease.
Throughout October, we’ll be showing support in our own way by debuting our new pink ribbon logo. Like us, I’m sure you all know someone who has been affected by Breast Cancer so please take the time this month to show your support in any way that you can….even if it’s just adding a little bit of pink to your desk at work or your social media platforms.
We also welcome your stories here on Quarterlette. If you would like to share a personal experience that you went through or you would like to write a tribute to someone special who battled Breast Cancer, please let us know and we’ll be happy to get your story up on the site this month.
Have a great October…and be sure to show a little pink.
-Rachel & Emily
P.S. A BIG thank you to Lauren DeMattia for helping us with our ribbon logo!
