September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and for the 5th year Folonari Wines and Frederick Wildman and Sons, Ltd are teaming up with Turn the Towns Teal® to help raise awareness and much needed donations! There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer. 1 out of 70 women will be diagnosed this year and the majority will be in the late stages of the disease.
You can participate in the campaign by taking a photo of yourself wearing teal (or use a teal filter) and post to social media with the hashtag #TurnMySelfieTeal. Once 10,000 selfies are posted with the hashtag, Folonari will donate $10,000 in addition to the contribution they make to Turn the Towns Teal every time a bottle of their wine is sold. Here's the selfie I will be posting!
It is very easy for you and your friends to participate in #TurnMySelfieTeal:
•Take a fun, creative selfie of yourself wearing teal or using a teal photo filter
•Post your selfie to your favorite social network using the hashtag #TurnMySelfieTeal
•If you want, add this direct donation link to your post http://fws.me/tttt_donate
•Invite 3 or more of your friends to do the same!
About Turn the Towns Teal
Turn The Towns Teal® is a national campaign to promote awareness of ovarian cancer and its subtle symptoms. Volunteers tie ribbons throughout town centers and hand out symptom cards during the month of September which is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. Turn The Towns Teal® was founded in 2007 by Gail MacNeil (1943-2008) of Chatham, NJ, who was inspired by her own experiences. During Gail’s ten-year battle with ovarian cancer, she realized first-hand that not enough was being done to publicize the symptoms of the disease.Today over 175 towns across 50 US states participate, plus Canada and Bermuda.
