PinkGives – Snapfish Supports Breast Cancer Awareness Month

by Lolli

I think it would be hard to find a woman today who has not been effected by breast cancer. Whether its a sister, a mother, a friend, or herself, breast cancer is literally a disease that is close to the hearts of many women. Too many women.


In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Snapfish has partnered with Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Through the end of October, Snapfish is offering exclusive PinkGives personalized photo gifts including a custom card collection, customizable jewelry, calendars, notebooks, bookmarks and more.

For every PinkGives product purchased, Snapfish us donating 30 percent of the proceeds (up to $25,000) to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

“Snapfish, like many families, has been personally affected by breast cancer, so this is an issue that is near and dear to our hearts,” said Helen Vaid, general manager, Snapfish by HP. “As such, we desire to support this effort by partnering with Susan G. Komen, also dedicated to support, awareness, the importance of early detection and finding cures.”

8 Jessica October 26, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I love to give photo books for Christmas gifts for family (they love it too, I think!). I’d probably make some books with the gift card.

I’d love to make one of the beautiful notebook/journals for my aunt- a breast cancer survivor!


10 Susan Chaves October 26, 2011 at 7:30 pm

I would make a book of my two kids during their first year. I would put my son on one side and my daughter on the other side. I made them both baby books but that is for them. This would be a summary baby book of both kids just for me!


11 Shari October 26, 2011 at 7:57 pm

The grandparents in our family always want new calendars for Christmas, so I would definitely make some of them with photos of their favorite little people for the grandparents! :)


12 Barbara Manatee October 26, 2011 at 9:53 pm

I have yet to scrapbook pictures of any of my 3 kids. My goal this winter is to make photo books of each of their first years. I would totally use the gift card for that!

15 JUNE October 27, 2011 at 7:21 am

I too have not gotten my family scrap booking done that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time. Maybe this winter will finally be the time to get it done. ( I hope)

I would make calendars for my parents.


27 Tami M November 1, 2011 at 11:50 am

Those notebooks look beautiful! I think I’d try that. Less time consuming than creating a photo book. (Which turn out lovely … they are just somewhat labor intensive, at least for a Type A personality like myself …)


28 Brigitte November 2, 2011 at 3:48 pm

I love Snapfish photo books! They are so easy to make and turn out wonderful. It’s the perfect gift for my grandmother who doesn’t need anymore stuff, but never gets to see enough of her great grand babies across the country! I’ve been wanting to make a mug or some other memorabilia for my military husband to take with him when he is deployed as well.


29 McKim November 5, 2011 at 7:48 am

I would get a collage photo canvas made for my daughter with her graduation pictures on it.


30 Marija November 5, 2011 at 4:49 pm
