As you may know, last September on Father’s Day I lost my mother to an aggressive form of breast cancer. In her honour, I support the three major breast cancer charities in Australia; NBCF, BCNA and the McGrath Foundation.
You might also know that during the month of October, it was Breast Cancer Awareness month where you could purchase specially marked pink products to raise much needed funds for these wonderful charities.
One such company raising funds for the McGrath Foundation as part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is Ski yoghurt.
As part of its three-year commitment to McGrath Foundation, SKI® has pledged to ‘build a nurse from yoghurt’ by donating $350,000 to fund a McGrath Breast Care Nurse in the local community.
McGrath Foundation CEO, Kylea Tink, is proud of the Foundation’s new friendship with SKI®, particularly given the Foundation’s commitment to people experiencing breast cancer in rural and regional Australia.
“It’s a beautiful synergy – farming communities helping to provide SKI® to supermarkets and consumers giving back to the communities that need it most if ever they require the support of a McGrath Breast Care Nurse,” said Kylea.
With a different yoghurt to suit every taste and occasion, the SKI® range makes it easy for customers to show their support to a worthy cause this Breast Cancer Awareness Month:
- Packed with protein and rich in calcium, SKI® D’lite is a low fat yoghurt which helps keep you going and going. Available in many delicious fruit flavours, the yoghurts are 99% fat free but 100% delicious
- A tub of creamy goodness available in six indulgent flavours, SKI® Divine is made with deliciously thick whole milk, and one of the nicest ways to reward yourself!
- Endorsed by Weight Watchers, the thick and creamy SKI® Soleil range comes with everything you could want from an irresistible snack but without the fat and less than 1% sugar.
SKI® D’lite, Divine and Soleil 1kg yoghurts are available from Woolworths, Coles and IGA, RRP $5.69.
Ski kindly asked if I would like to take part in spreading breast cancer awareness and kindly allowed me to ‘pay it forward’ to a dear friend of mine who is battling cancer herself.
My gorgeous friend has 5 children and her strength, courage and ‘can do’ attitude never ceases to amaze me. She is also a person who will help anyone and will literally give you the shirt off her back if she had to. When I am having a down day, I think about my friend and with all that she is going through still manages to be happy and carry on with her life and it makes me realise how lucky I am.
My mission: I was given a $30 Woolworths voucher for myself to have a “Pink” breakfast (Ski strawberry yoghurt! YUM! and of course the essential coffee) and to write a card/ letter to let my friend know how much inspiration she gives others. I was also given an Endota Spa voucher to send her for some much needed pampering.
Of course, I can’t be paying it forward without doing it to my wonderful readers as well.
Ski and Mummy of Style and Substance are giving one lucky reader a $30 Woolworths voucher and a Endota Spa voucher for a 30 minute massage, valued at $65 either to use for themselves or so you can pamper a friend who you think needs some pampering.
Competition is open to all Australian residents. Competition closes midnight 11/11/13. Total prize is worth $95.
