Protect your MOM; go to Europe!
Harnessing the creativity of the youth for a noble cause.
Breast cancer is something which the media bothers about only in the month of October. Which is interesting because cancer kills thousands every year? It is interesting to note that cancer can kill only a person who doesn’t recognize the early symptoms. The survival rate goes up to 95% if it is detected early.
PYM was started on Facebook to do exactly that. Somehow people think that breast cancer is something that happens only to others, that it is hereditary, that only old people get it. Yet everyone knows someone with cancer. It is time we fought back.
Pym aims to do that primarily through the PYM Design and win contest. Since mothers are usually too busy to worry about their health the campaign targets children for 3 reasons. 1. They grow up to be more informed adults 2. They can use their pester power to make their moms do a self exam/mammogram. 3. They are usually on social media and could be reached at zero cost. The contest was started in 2011 to make mothers aware of lumps and other signs of breast cancer through music, dance/skits/arts the language of youth.
Avon presented gift hampers and certificates to all 32 participants.
