The Meg & Marie Blog is Back
Hey friends! I know it’s been forever since I’ve written a blog post, but I’m back! The beginning of a new school year always kicks me in the butt and it takes awhile to get back into the swing of things. Juggling two jobs and still having a personal life is not always easy, but definitely worth it! Slowly, but surely, I’m getting used to the new schedule and hope to have some new, exciting blog posts coming your way soon!
Purchase With a Purpose: October SOTM
Today I want to chat about our latest SOTM. Back in April, the American Cancer Society in Illinois reached out to us about collaborating on a Breast Cancer SOTM for October. We were so honored that they thought of us and have been eagerly planning this SOTM for the past 6 months! We are offering an adult crewneck sweatshirt, a youth crewneck sweatshirt, and an infant onesie. 50% of the profits from all 3 items will go to the Breast Cancer Team at the American Cancer Society in Illinois. Each product features the quote “crazy thankful” on front with the breast cancer ribbon worked into the design. On back is our small “M” logo and “meg & marie” in small font. All items are super soft and cozy and I must say, this is one of my favorite SOTM products to date!
Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Unfortunately, but not surprisingly, all of us at Meg & Marie have known many amazing women affected by breast cancer from family members to friends. I’m guessing almost everyone reading this has also been affected by breast cancer in one way or another. In 2017 alone, there were around 252,710 new cases of breast cancer diagnosed, making it the most common type of cancer in women, besides skin cancer.
"Crazy Thankful": Breast Cancer Awareness Clothing
As a company that values strong, healthy, and happy women, we can’t think of a better cause to support in October than breast cancer, which is why we are so excited to be donating 50% of all October SOTM profits to the Breast Cancer Team at the ACS. ACS invests more in breast cancer research than any other type of cancer. 100% of the money that we donate will go to breast cancer research, advocacy, and patient programs here in Illinois. Please consider purchasing a “crazy thankful” product. You might even want to get the adult sweatshirt for yourself and the youth sweatshirt or infant onesie for your little one so that you guys can match! They also make wonderful Christmas gifts (no, it’s not too early to start thinking about Christmas gifts!) We appreciate every SOTM purchase and you can feel great knowing that not only will you look cute in your sweatshirt, but your purchase made a difference! And if you’re looking to make even more of an impact on the fight against breast cancer this October, you can visit www.makingstrideswalk.org to find an ACS Breast Cancer walk near you!
