From now until November 3, when you visit a Safeway, Vons, Pavillions, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Dominick’s, or Carrs store, you’ll be able to purchase a reusable shopping bag for $2.99. A full $2.00 of that will go to benefit breast cancer research.
You can also purchase $30 of participating products with pink price tags, and $5 will be donated, up to $1,000,000. Here’s a video that talks about it, with a message from Stand Up to Cancer ambassador Marg Helgenberger of CSI fame.
The bag is reusable and engraved with the words “Creating a brighter tomorrow”. With 2.5 million women in the US (that’s one out of every 8) still affected by breast cancer, it’s a cause that still desperately needs all the attention we give it every October.
