Real Men Wear Pink!!
The month of October is creeping up on us, and with it comes the turning of the leaves, cinnamon-scented candles and a chill in the air. But aside from pumpkin-spice lattes and sweet potato casserole, it is also breast cancer awareness month. As someone whose family members have experienced breast cancer and lived to tell the tale, this particular subject is very close to my heart (no pun intended).
Many of us have experienced or know someone who has experienced some form of cancer. Some have lived and others weren’t so lucky. So in an attempt to help fund breast cancer studies, an organization in Springfield, Missouri is taking strides to support breast cancer awareness and research. That organization is none other than RareFlamingo – a digital marketing agency for the real estate market.
RareFlamingo makes social media for your business, as easy as pumpkin pie. They have honed their skills to the real estate segment, working with realtors, mortgage companies and larger nation-wide agencies. They run Facebook ads, google ad campaigns, and give many local and national companies a personified voice online (after all, no one likes talking to a product or a service – they want to connect with the people behind the product or service).
How is RareFlamingo Supporting Breast Cancer Research and Awareness?
I am glad you asked…even though you didn’t ask – I wrote out the question and you read it. Regardless, here is the answer:
RareFlamingo’s own founder and CEO, Joshua Breyfogle, has partnered with the Real Men Wear Pink initiative to help raise funds for breast cancer research. Joshua has already liaised with several establishments in Springfield, Mo to host a set of events during the month of October where a portion of the proceeds will be made to the Breast Cancer Foundation.
The young and focused Mr. Breyfogle has set a large target for himself and has pledged to raise $2,500 by the end of October. Even if you don’t attend any of the events sponsored by RareFlamingo and Mr. Breyfogle, you can always make a donation here.
How Can I Support RareFlamingo’s Quest to Raise $2,500 by the end of October?
Easy, by hitting a comedy show or two… or a restaurant on a certain night. That’s right! The beautiful thing about Joshua’s campaign is you don’t have to go out of your way to support breast cancer research – you can have a night out with your friends or take your S/O out on a date. If only I had a special someone to take me to a fun-filled event like this (hint…hint… Sean – are you reading this?).
Get to the Point Jana!
Woah! Calm down – sheesh! You can find out the events by visiting RareFlamingo’s Facebook Page – Joshua has them all listed there.

The point is this – cancer is a disease which has pained millions of people around the world. And though we have amazing technology and state-of-the-art equipment, we don’t know what we don’t know. This is why research is so important – so I implore you to show your support during the month of October whether it is simply making a donation or making a night of it with friends and loved ones. Maybe we will bump into each other!
Wishing you endless health and happiness!
