From Breast Cancer Awareness Month to Halloween – October has a lot going on and plenty of promotional opportunities for your business or organization.
Read on to see our top picks for you to purchase in September to create successful and impactful events in October.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Gifts and Giveaways that Make a Difference
Every October, businesses, schools, and healthcare organizations align with the mission of raising funds and awareness for Breast Cancer prevention, treatment, and support. Susan G. Komen started this mission during her 3 years of battling while noticing how patients were treated and how slow research was for the disease. Nancy Brinker established the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982 and it’s now nationally recognized every October to increase awareness of the disease. The foundation now includes Race for the Cure events, educational information, and volunteer opportunities to spread the word about Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Race for the Cure has a National Teams program as an opportunity for companies to encourage their employees to raise funds to support the mission to end breast cancer forever.
We are proud to offer a selection of products that can be used to raise funds or as gifts for participants in fund raising events. These events support efforts to raise awareness and go to good causes that can make a huge impact.
New Breast Cancer Awareness products this year include a pink ribbon themed hand fans and pocket-sized hand sanitizer sprays. Check out our full selection of Breast Cancer Awareness products.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month
Every year in October, we focus our attention towards hopeful dogs waiting to find their loving forever homes during Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) sponsors and promotes Adopt a Shelter Dog month every October, while the American Humane Society continuously celebrates a month-long October campaign encouraging adopting shelter dogs since 1981. Community shelters make every effort to match each dog with proper owners with the right environment to support the dog’s second chance at living their best life with those that love them unconditionally.
Our selection of custom printed pet products including gifts and giveaways that can be used to raise funds in support of an animal rescue organization or as marketing tools to create awareness for a pet related service like veterinary clinics and grooming services. Our tail-wagging selection includes leashes, pet bowls, cat toys, and even bird houses.
Get in Gear with School Spirit Promotions
School spirit revs up in October with the start of football season, pep rallies, and homecoming on all the calendar. Printed spirit products are great opportunity for schools to partner with a local business to create sponsored giveaways. Custom printed stadium seats offer a large imprint area with plenty of space for multiple logos while dual purposing as a comfortable seat during school sporting events. Foam fingers and waivers are great ways for schools to make sure their school and team logo are seen at home and away games. Custom printed pennants are a simple and effective way to show support for your favorite team by using team colors, school names and mascots.
Custom Printed Halloween Candy, Bags, and more
October comes to a close with a familiar favorite that many people had to miss last year. Halloween is back and brings new opportunities for neighborhoods and communities to come together. Custom printed candy is a great way spread awareness of a local business or service using an item that ensures the delicious treats are enjoyed safely. Custom printed Halloween bags are popular giveaways for local banks and schools and a must-have for Trunk or Treat events. Our selection of printed Halloween giveaways are a great way for any organization to spread their message in October.
