Ways To Make A Difference, A Poem

September 13, 2012 6 mins read

We were so excited for all the fun during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we decided to test our poetry skills!

It’s that time of year again when we raise awareness of breast cancer
How can you get involved? Here’s one answer:
Shop in the pink, with products that support our cause,
From pink diamonds, to personalised car plates to sports bras – we’ve opened all doors;
Our friends at Masterpet have released a dog toy too,
Like select SuperStrike Tenpin Bowling centres, they’ll make a donation to support the work we do;
A mammogram at an I-MED clinic will see a $10 donation made to us,
Love it UP and GOthat have made us their charity of choice in October without any fuss;
Dr Lewinn’s, Goldwell and ModelCo will provide us with beauty treats,
Whilst Zelows and LR Instruments will be making their donations extra sweet;
‘Mount Franklin’ will donate $1 for every uploaded message of support,
As Novo, Ingham and Red Earth spread the cheer ‘ of the tasty sort;
A donation of 100% of sales from the Dollar Cosmetic Club will be all the rage,
And $31,000 can be raised by liking the Baskin Robbins Facebook page;
With all this pink, nothing is a bore,
Read below to find out more!
