"Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them." - Albert Einstein

As most of you know October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In honor of that, I've decided to dedicate every Thankful Thursday post this month to raising awareness about breast cancer by doing some research and educating myself and then relaying that information to you guys! You can read my previous post here, where I talked about Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Today I'll be talking about how YOU can help raise awareness! I've learned a lot this past month about breast cancer and I hope you guys have to. Now it's up to you and I to help spread the word and help others become educated too! (:

There are plenty of ways for you to share your knowledge with others, especially in this day and age where everything is right at our fingertips. Just tweeting, instagramming, facebooking, vineing, tumblring, or whatever other social media sites you use, about breast cancer can help raise awareness, even if it's just one person, you could be helping that one person. But if you don't want to just tell people, there are plenty of opportunities for you to do something to make a difference. (:

You can donate to a breast cancer research foundation, volunteer at a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure event or at a hospital, or even sharing your own personal experiences. This post isn't going to be some long post explaining exactly what the steps are to raising awareness because there are endless opportunities to raise awareness, you just have to get out there and do it! I'm just here to give you some ideas and let you know that ANYTHING that you do helps. So whether you decide to tweet a breast cancer statistic, post a breast cancer ribbon on Instagram, post a link on Facebook or even just talk to your friends about it, it ALL helps raise awareness. 

Although it's the end of "breast cancer awareness month," and I won't be doing anymore posts doesn't mean that breast cancer is any less important. We dedicate a month to raise awareness and then spend the rest of the year doing something about it, at least that's how I like to think about it. So let's get educated and then help educate others! Also, Happy Halloween! xx
