Help Everyone Loves Buttons spread awareness about breast cancer this October!

October is upon us, which means it is time to amp up the spread of awareness for one of the deadliest diseases in the world, breast cancer. Breast Cancer Awareness Month provides people with the platform not only to inform individuals about the disease but also to celebrate the battles that were won and remember those who lost the fight.

According to breastcancer.org, not only is breast cancer the most frequently diagnosed cancer in the world, it is also the leading cause of cancer deaths among women worldwide. To put that into perspective, one case of breast cancer is diagnosed in a woman every two minutes in the United States alone, and somewhere in the world, one person dies every 60 seconds from breast cancer.

As a nationally certified woman-owned business, Everyone Loves Buttons would like to invite you to join the fight and help spread awareness about breast cancer. We are currently offering a 10% discount on any breast cancer awareness products ordered through our website in the month of October. Just use the promo code “BCA10” when checking out, and you can save more then just money… you can help save lives.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month is right around the corner!

As a nationally certified woman-owned business, Everyone Loves Buttons would like to share some statistics about breast cancer in preparation for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

According to breastcancer.org, about 1 in every 8 (12%) women develop breast cancer at some point throughout their lifetime. It is not limited to women, but it is a much more common occurrence among the female gender. In America, breast cancer ranks second behind only a couple forms of skin cancer as the most commonly diagnosed cancer among women. Aside from lung cancer, breast cancer death rates are higher than any other cancer among women in the United States.

Needless to say, breast cancer is a big deal in the U.S. and across the world. The problem is that most people aren’t educated enough on the matter, which prevents those individuals from detecting the disease early on causing the cancer to spread prior to diagnosis. This is why October is so important in terms of spreading the word about breast cancer.

In today’s day and age, it is much easier to spread awareness with the likes of the Internet and more specifically social media. As for breast cancer awareness, the pink movement has been expanding over the last few decades. All of your favorite NFL players sport their hot pink cleats, gloves, socks, and towels throughout the month of October to help raise awareness about the disease. DeAngelo Williams, running back for the Pittsburgh Steelers, even dies some of his braids pink for the entirety of the NFL season in support of his mother’s battle with breast cancer.

There is always more that we can do to combat an illness like cancer, but the little things like wearing pink and supporting the fight can help build the foundation for a better tomorrow.

5 Ways to Support Your Candidate This Political Season

  1. A picture is worth a thousand words, a t-shirt is worth more.

Political T-shirts

What a person wears is the most expressive way for someone to portray themselves to the general public. Nobody has time to explain their interests, hobbies or beliefs to everyone they see walking down the street. So why not wear them? A political t-shirt is the perfect way to show your support without having to explain yourself.

  1. You drive everywhere. Bumper stickers go where you go.

Political Bumper Stickers

Probably the most common way to show one’s support for a candidate is to slap a bumper sticker on your car and take your candidate everywhere you go. Everyone has seen them. So whether you’re in support of Trump or Hillary, or even if you’re just trying to keep the Bernie movement alive, don’t forget to drive in style with your political bumper sticker.

  1. Make coffee great again by waking up with your candidate.

Political Mugs

Do you have dreams of a better America? Do you know who can make that happen for you? Whether you’re waking up or having an afternoon cup of joe at work, a political mug is the perfect way to show your support for a better tomorrow.

  1. Keep your head in the game by wearing a hat to support your candidate.

Political Hats

As I mentioned above, what you wear is the first thing someone notices when they see you in public. If you are passionate about your candidate, you should show your support as much and as often as you can. A t-shirt can be worn once a week or so, but a hat can be worn day-in and day-out. So cap off this political season by wearing your candidate’s hat to show your support.

  1. Pin it to win it. Wear your candidate’s button everywhere you go.

Political Buttons

Buttons are perfect for showing your support for your candidate on a daily basis. You can wear your button with any outfit, or you can pin it to your backpack, purse, jacket, etc. The possibilities are endless for your political button, as you can choose to create a magnetic button as opposed to the standard pin back. A magnetic version can be worn or simply placed on the fridge or filing cabinet. Buttons may provide the most versatile ways to show your support this political season.

Political Bundle

Ultimately, the important thing is that you get out and vote. You can be the difference between the change you want to see and the change you don’t. Make your voice heard by supporting your candidate proudly.

Customer Spotlight: UCONN’s Junior Husky Club

Customer Spotlight: Russell Atkinson

This week, we focus on one of our longtime customers at Everyone Loves Buttons. He is a distinguished author and photographer, who took up a new cause in the early 2000’s… to help create a safer environment for the thousands of people who attend Burning Man.

Burning Man is an event that occurs once a year in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. The cultural phenomenon was started in San Francisco in 1986 as a means to celebrate community, art and self-expression before being moved to Nevada in 1990. Since then, it has expanded into a city of its own known as Black Rock City for the crazed fans that have come to be known as “burners.”

Russell Atkinson, aka Dr. Placebo by fellow “burners,” has attended the event since 1999. A few years later, Atkinson took it upon himself to help found the Bureau of Erotic Discourse, a team of volunteers that provides information and education about the importance of sexual consent at Burning Man in hopes to help create an overall safer environment for everyone at the event.

Got Consent?

The B.E.D. has since extended its outreach beyond the annual event in Black Rock City. The group has used workshops, forums, posters, public service announcements and of course, buttons to help spread their message.

We are proud to help support such an important cause by providing Russell and his team with buttons to continue spreading the word about the importance of consent at Burning Man and elsewhere across the country.

The annual event starts on August 28, 2016 and runs through September 5, 2016. For all the “burners” who will be in attendance; don’t forget to grab a button, wear it proud and support the B.E.D.’s cause to stop sexual misconduct.

The New School Year is Here!

The New School Year is Here!

School is back in session for some school districts here in Arizona and it’s this time of year that we get button orders from schools and teachers. Buttons make a great memento for students on their first day and throughout the school year.

There are many different ways a school or a teacher can use buttons inside the classroom to show a student’s success.

The first way is why not use buttons instead of name tags for the first few days or weeks of school. Buttons are more durable than paper and less likely to get forgotten or damaged if you have your students turn in their button or clip it onto their backpacks. Our buttons are topped with a thin piece of plastic called Mylar which allows the surface to be written on with dry erase and permanent marker.

Another way that we see here quite often, are schools buying Happy Birthday buttons. These buttons celebrate the student’s birthday and it is just an unexpected token to show that the school cares about its students.

Finally, buttons can be used to show a student’s success in the classroom, such as acing that really hard test for the older students or finally learning the alphabet for the younger students. Either way it gives the teacher an opportunity to show praise to their students and give them a memento of their success.

From all of us here at Everyone Loves Buttons good luck in the new school year!
