Pink tires are “rolling” across Charlotte and surrounding areas! Why??? Charlotte Radiology, in an effort to increase mammogram awareness, are placing pink tires in local spots just waiting for us to find them. Did I mention that the tires are pink?
Here are two simple steps to follow if you’re driving/walking/biking/flying/buzzing around Charlotte, this week and you spot a bright pink tire:
1. Take a photo of the PINK TIRE (there are 30 in the Charlotte area, so you can make it a game to discover all of them, or just try to scope out those in your neck-of-the-woods) with whatever you have handy, cell phone or camera.
2. Post the photo on the Charlotte Radiology Facebook page (be sure you like their page first, and feel free to tell them @MommyBKnowsBest sent you), also tell them where you found the tire, ( give landmarks or street address please.)
The tires will look like this:
For every picture posted Charlotte Radiology will donate $1 to Ann’s Fund, which raises money to fund mammograms for underprivileged women in the Charlotte area. Isn’t that great? So be sure to get your friends to join in this great cause and their friends too. Let’s raise lots of money for those who are at risk but can’t afford a mammogram! As an added bonus your name will be entered to win a $100 gift card to Laura James Jewelry.
Please don’t forget, if you are 40 years old +, or may be high risk be sure to schedule your mammogram today: http://www.charlotteradiology.com/appointments-mammogram-screening.cfm.
(Also stay tuned for an even bigger, related announcement on January 21st.)
If you’re in the Charlotte area and would like to go on a “MommyB Knows Best Pink Party” comment on this post. We’ll round everyone up, wear pink, search Charlotte for pink tires, and make money to fund mammograms for the underprivileged women in our “backyard”! Everyone’s invited, men, women, kids, let’s get out there and show our support.
