Eggland's Best & Susan G. Komen for the Cure Giveaway

Part of being the “best” is doing “good” and in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October,
 Eggland’s Best (EB) will be supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure®.

From September 15th to November 15th, Eggland’s Best will be turning their distinctive red “EB”
stamp into a pink “EB” alongside a Susan G. Komen for the Cure running ribbon logo.
Eggland’s Best will also be pledging $50,000 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, which will help
expand the foundation’s mission to discover and deliver the cure for breast cancer across the globe.

  • Consumers can do their part to help find a cure for breast cancer by supporting products that contribute to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation.  For example, Eggland’s Best will be donating $50,000 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure and, from September 15th to November 15th, Eggland’s Best eggs is turning their distinctive red “EB” stamp into a pink “EB” alongside a Susan G. Komen for the Cure running ribbon.

  • In the past year, with the help of companies including Eggland’s Best, Susan G. Komen for the Cure has been able to invest an additional $75 million in research, as well as provide more than 600,000 women with free screenings and over 100,000 with treatment assistance

  • Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the US, other than skin cancer and second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer

  • Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States

  • Although you can’t control your family history, a healthy lifestyle is one of the best defenses against breast cancer

    • Exercise may help reduce breast cancer risk.  Research suggests four or more hours of exercise weekly may help reduce the risk of certain cancers, such as breast cancer – that’s just 35 minutes a day
    • When trimming calories, it’s important to make sure you don’t skimp on good nutrition. For only 70 calories, Eggland's Best eggs supply a perfect portion of complete protein, while providing two times more Vitamin D and omega-3 fatty acids, as well as 10 times more Vitamin E compared to ordinary eggs. Preliminary evidence suggests that, as part of a healthy diet, vitamin D and choline can help to reduce the risk of breast cancer. Eggland’s Best eggs are an excellent source of these nutrients, containing double the vitamin D of ordinary eggs in addition to  25% of the daily requirement of choline.

I am so happy to support the cause by participating in the Part of Being the Best is Doing Good program, helping to spread the word about the EB/Susan G. Komen partnership and “pink ribbon” eggs. 

Win it!  

one lucky reader will win an Eggland's Best Prize pack which will include: eco bag, plush egg, spatula and an EB  (VIP) coupon.
