Awareness campaigns for cancer tend to be (most often) developed by and for adults, but what happens when the tables are turned and the younger generation is the one creating the message for their peers and communities?
That’s what Know to Beat is all about and it is from that base that we teamed up with the Faireface Association, May Jallad Foundation and Lebanese Breast Cancer Foundation (LBCF) to develop a cancer awareness competition that would bring in the creative talents of 15 public schools from the Beirut district.
OCTOBER is the international Breast Cancer Awareness month and what better way to show your support for women fighting cancer than by donating from your own hair to help them cope better with the harsh side effects of chemotherapy?
One Wig Stand in collaboration with L'Oreal Professionnel are organizing a special hair donation event at City Centre Beirut, teaming up with top L'Oreal hair stylists for an afternoon of free cuts and styling for all who wish to donate.
As of October 1st, we've introduced a new daily post series of awareness tips that we'll be sharing via our facebook page for the entire month. They're all small things that won't require much time or effort but will help you learn in small doses more about breast health, early detection signs and other activities you can do to support the cause.
There’s truly lots of helpful information online regarding breast cancer awareness, but it often goes ignored for being either too deja-vu, medical or boring. We strongly believe in the role design plays in getting the right message across so we spent a few days looking online for the most creative samples out there. Below are a few of our favorites and feel free to share them with others or print them out to serve as reminders when needed:
