Breast Cancer Awareness–Coffee for the Cure and More

I am sure that we all know someone who was fought breast cancer before.  Some of those people have won their battles & sadly some have not.  During the month of October, Panera Bread in Central Ohio is partnering with the Stefanie Spielman Fund to support breast cancer awareness month. 

Purchase a special Stefanie Spielman Coffee Mug for $10 and refills on free for the month of October.  I purchased my mug today.

I love coffee and will drink it anyway, so why not help support the fight against breast cancer in the process?  While the pink ribbon bagels are not gluten-free, they do have some gluten-free options

Short side note – Giant Eagle is carrying Starburst Jelly Beans for under $3.00/bag.  They are now my go-to store.  Yes, I have a problem.  No, I don’t care to do anything about that.  Giant Eagle has made gluten-free shopping a little easier in their stores.  Instead of having a dedicated gluten-free section, they have gluten-free products labeled with a tag on the shelf.  I did see some that I know are gluten-free that weren’t labeled, but it is a start.  Gluten-free friendly & carries Starburst Jelly Beans?  Winning. 

The lovely Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily has made a Chocolate Silk Pie that is not only gluten-free, but dairy-free & grain-free, too.  Check it out! 

I have several reviews that I am in the middle of writing right now.  I can’t wait to share these with you guys!  Smile

  • Awww, thanks for the link love, Kim! I do love that pie. ;-)

    I am grateful to have a mom and a MIL who are breast cancer survivors! And other relatives and friends who are survivors and others who sadly did not make it. Each loss is monumental. I would love to see the focus move the prevention as well as diagnosis and treatment.

    Thanks, dear! xo,

  • Question, do you know what percent of money donated to the Stephanie Spielman fund actually goes to research? I genuinely don't know, but after reading a number of articles about the numerous breast cancer "charities" that don't actually use the money correctly, I'm kind of hesitant to donate to any of them. Thanks! This is a much better way to promote breast cancer awareness than say faking a pregnancy on Facebook!

    • Good question. I have heard a lot of things about a certain organization, too. This is what I found on the site:

      A portion of proceeds from each mug sold will be donated to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research.

      I am now interested in finding out exactly how much. I didn't mind buying the mug b/c I drink a lot of coffee, so it worked for me. I'll let you know what I find out.

  • Thanks for the update on the mug! I'll have to check it out. I like shopping at GE and have noticed their gluten free tags.
