You’re invited to a special Strong, not Scared edition of our #CleanCouponing Twitter parties! Chances are you’ve heard some scary statistics, like one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer or one in three women will be diagnosed with some type of cancer in her lifetime (chances are one in two for men).
While society may be awash in a sea of pink marketing gimmicks, especially in October, we’re focusing on cancer prevention. Two organizations that make an earnest effort to help women understand environmental causes of cancer will be our special guests on October 23rd, available to answer questions and point you to practical resources. We’re honored that both the Breast Cancer Fund and Women’s Voices for the Earth will be joining us at 9 pm Eastern, 6 pm Pacific for this latest #CleanCouponing Twitter party.
One personal connection for us here is Anne’s effort to raise $500 for the Breast Cancer Fund via this direct fundraiser for the organization. It’s in memory of Anne’s mom who was lost to another type of cancer, and in honor of so many others who’ve been coping with the disease. We appreciate your helping get the word out.
How does wellness and cancer prevention tie into the #CleanCouponing theme? At this companion to the Flour Sack Mama blog, we say we’re frugal with more than money. That means that while we’re always looking for a discount to share with you, we know you often shop with other values in mind. Particularly this month, we know you’re getting wiser about products flashing a pink ribbon that instead might contain cancer causing chemicals. Informed consumers know that’s no longer acceptable. So, we want to bring you some alternatives and a Twitter chat where everyone can share ideas and even talk about your favorite brands.
A couple of our favorite brands that have made this particular Twitter event possible in October are the scrumptious Santa Barbara Bar and the artisan body care company Rustic Maka. Check out those links for generous giveaways from both both brands.
Here are the special #CleanCouponing discounts for you:
At the Rustic Maka website use code “Clean15″ for 15% off your order.
At the Santa Barbara Bar website use code “SantaBarbaraBarClean” for 15% off your order.
These discount codes expire January 17, 2015.
Be sure to follow our special guests @BreastCancerFnd and @Women4Earth, our sponsors @tastySBbars and @RustickMaka, co-hosts @CleanCouponing and @FlourSackMama and this diverse mix of Twitter party panelists: @TheHousingHour, @ChooseWiser, @AFewGoodJens, @ginabad, @AlmostTruth, @massgreendad.

For now, RSVP below for the #CleanCouponing Twitter party and tell your friends about it. Let’s not be scared of those statistics. We are not powerless. We’re also not settling for a month of pink without real emphasis on prevention. Let’s empower one another by sharing information and staying strong for ourselves and those we love!
