This month, you’ll see a certain colour popping up around town on things like ribbons, vehicles and an untold variety of products lining store shelves — in pink, the official colour of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Over the years, awareness campaigns have saved countless women’s lives by bringing what was originally a hushed conversation to light, as they benefit from the knowledge that breast cancer isn’t an automatic death sentence.

With that, here’s your chance to help make a difference by supporting these brands with their fundraising initiatives:

1. Pink October Dining Specials at Shangri-La Hotel, Kuala Lumpur

To kick-start the month of pink, Shangri-La Hotel has lined up some exciting promotions through its ‘Pink Pals of Shang KL’ campaign from 1 – 31 October 2017. All dining outlets at the hotel — Lemon Garden 2Go, Shang Palace, Lobby Lounge — will be serving ‘pink specials’ where RM5 from each item purchased will be contributed to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association of Malaysia (BCWA).

Call 03-2074 3900 or email [email protected] for further information on the campaign and dining specials.

2. Chill Chill Goes Pink with Breast Cancer Welfare Association

Throughout the month of October, play your part in supporting breast cancer victims by purchasing the Nom Yen drink (a milk-based drink with a fragrant rose flavour) at any Chill Chill outlet. RM1 from the sale of each drink will be donated to BCWA, while RM0.50 will be contributed for every valid usage of the #pinktobermy hashtag on social media.

What’s more, BCWA’s Mobile Clinic will be carrying out free clinical breast examinations at Sunway Pyramid (8 Oct) and Nu Sentral (22 Oct) from 11am to 11pm together with Chill Chill.
