#RISEABOVECANCER and GO PINK WITH WWE

#RISEABOVECANCER and GO PINK WITH WWE

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and once again our friends at WWE have joined forces with Susan G Komen to #RISEABOVECANCER and GO PINK!

To support Komen’s mission, WWE will utilize all its assets including WWE Network and TV broadcasts, live events, PSAs, digital and social media to generate awareness and encourage fans to get involved. Throughout the month, the WWE announcer table, entrance ramp and ring skirts will be co-branded and the middle ring rope turned pink to promote the fight against breast cancer. Fans will also have the option to turn their Facebook and Twitter profiles pink to show their support. In addition, a co-branded WWE and Susan G. Komen flag will be flown outside of WWE’s corporate headquarters.

“We are so grateful for our partnership with WWE,” said Christina Alford, SVP of development for Susan G. Komen. “Their ‘Rise Above Cancer’ campaign reaches women in communities across the country, bringing awareness and helping us fund lifesaving research, and support to families living with breast cancer who need our help today.”

“WWE is exceptionally proud to continue our partnership with Susan G. Komen and its support of breast cancer research and awareness,” said WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon. “WWE remains deeply committed to this movement, as we utilize our global platforms to raise awareness and funds for a disease that impacts so many people around the world.”

Susan G. Komen and WWE have a history of success in raising awareness and funds for the fight against breast cancer. The partnership launched in 2012 and has generated more than $1.5 million for Komen to date. This past May, Komen and WWE teamed up again to support the Washington, D.C. Race for the Cure and National Women’s Health Week.

During Breast Cancer Awareness Month WWE fans can buy #RISEABOVECANCER gear and WWE will donate 20% of all sales to Susan G. Komen while shopping the WWE SHOP you can also add an additional donation of your own.

While watching Monday night Raw this past monday I was touched when all the superstars came our wearing their #RISEABOVECANCER ring gear, but what touched me more was that my 8 yr old son went and got a WWE gift card he had and asked if he could buy a shirt to wear and make a donation. I believe it was this segment that moved him to do so!

Once again Main Street Mama is pleased to team up with Tracee from Five Lil Bass In Tow to find out what she thought about this great new product Fruit.0 all the benefits of Fruit with no Fuss!
Do you enjoy Mangos? Pineapples? Pears? I know how hard it is to get your daily need for fruit. Being a full time working mom I do not worry about myself very much. Especially when it come to what I eat. If during my busy day I even remember to stop and eat. So these are the perfect product. Running late, again? Throw one of these neat pouches in your purse, in your diaper bag or even your briefcase. each pouch gives you 80% of your daily needed vitamin C. Both kinds of pouches are 100% fruit! There are no sugars or additives in them. Even the babies loves them! Plus another great thing about these is if you are watching your weight but need to have a nice snack, these are perfect! Check it out, only 100 calories each. Just unscrew the top and squeeze! Tracee says that her 16 year old daughter will go to feed one to the baby and she will catch her snackin on Fruit.0 too. Yes, they are that good. I am truly loving finding all these new products that are actually good for you!

Not a big fan or those fruits? Try the Berries and Bananas flavor. A little something for everyone!

Her oldest daughters favorite was the Berries and Bananas! Her son’s mostly went for the Mango. Maybe it’s a boy thing. We loved them. Great for all ages!!
About Them
Like any busy professionals with demanding jobs, we spend loooong hours camped in our offices with fewer and fewer breaks for proper meals. Of course, vending machines full of candies and jars stuffed with cookies were always around to silence a hungry stomach. The office kitchen would also have some fruit but no one knew when it was brought in and the brown spots on the apple were less reassuring. Our wish was simple. Why can’t we have a healthy alternative snack that tastes good, that is full of nutrition and is prepared in a way that’s easy to carry and enjoy whenever, wherever we needed it? The answer was fruit.0! A delicious, organic fruit snack with none of the artificial stuff. We absolutely enjoy these snacks and we hope you do as well.

Go Red For Women Today is National Wear Red Day

Today is National Wear Red Day.. Are you up for the challenge to GO RED FOR WOMEN??

 Every year, on the first Friday in February, millions of women and men come together  wearing red,  ready to take action and commit to fight Heart Disease.  In 2003, the American Heart Association was faced with a big challenge ,  being  that Cardiovascular disease  was claiming the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year. Many women often dismiss heart disease as an “older man’s disease.” Many don’t pay attention to the tell tale signs. In order to dispel the myths of heart disease as the No. 1 killer of women, the American Heart Association, along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute created National Wear Red Day® , in order to raise awareness of this critical disease. Go Red For Women promotes, educates ,informs and challenges us to make a change within ourselves and fight Heart Disease head on.

Go Red For Women is a passionate, emotional, social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health. By banding together we can collectively wipe out heart disease. It challenges us to know our own risk for heart disease , seek preventative medicine and follow the guidelines set forth for heart health.

Since the first National Wear Red Day 10 years ago, tremendous strides have been made in the fight against heart disease in women

  • 21% fewer women are dying from heart disease
  • 23% more women aware that it’s their No. 1 health threat
  • Publishing of gender-specific results, established differences in symptoms and responses to medications and women-specific guidelines for prevention and treatment
  • Legislation to help end gender disparities

Want more information on how you can make a difference visit American Heart Association Go Red For Women online .

 I ask that you and all your friends wear RED today and to help share the truth about heart disease and make ending it a reality!

SO Main Street Mama’s are you up to the challenge?

Whose wearing RED with me today?


TOGETHER WE CAN STOMP OUT HEART DISEASE…. GO RED
