Bookmarks and calendars- Komen Atlanta will provide each faith-based organization with bookmarks and up to 200 calendars for free. Additional calendars can be purchased for $140 (the price of funding a mammogram for an individual without insurance).
Fundraising incentives- We have three different giving levels for organizations: Supporter, Sponsor, Sustainer. For registering for Worship in Pink, your organization immediately becomes a Worship in Pink Supporter. If your organization donates $500-$999 you will reach the Sponsor level and receive a gift box for your congregation that will include sticky notes, pens, and more. For organizations that donate $1000+ you will reach the Sustainer level and the organization will receive everything from the Sponsor level plus a commemorative plaque and the organization’s name will be linked on the Komen Atlanta website.
Social Media Toolkit- We have sample posts and images to help promote Worship in Pink on your different social media platforms.
Power Point Slide Deck- There is a breast health information Power Point slide deck available to those who want a presentation to show to their congregation.
Who can participate in WIP?
ALL faith-based organizations are welcome to participate in Worship in Pink! We want to spread lifesaving messages about breast health to as many people as possible and we encourage your organization to join us.
When is WIP?
Worship in Pink takes place throughout the month of October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month). You decide when you’d like to have your program.
How can my organization register?
Register online at www.komenatlanta.org/WIP. Please contact Theru Ross at 404-814-0052 if assistance is needed. Materials are limited, so don’t delay!
What exactly does my organization have to do to participate?
Your organization can do as little or as much as it would like for Worship in Pink. Access our toolkit which includes sample scripts, bulletin announcements, breast cancer facts and more to help you plan. Most organizations distribute education materials after a service, invite their members to wear pink, or host a fundraiser to make a donation to Komen Atlanta. We encourage you to be creative with your plans for WIP and to make it fun and engaging for your audience.
Does Komen Atlanta provide speakers?
We strongly recommend that each organization identifies a member of their own congregation to serve as a Worship in Pink speaker. Komen Atlanta has trained breast health awareness speakers; however, speakers are very limited and will be scheduled based on availability. Please have a plan in place in case Komen Atlanta cannot send a speaker to your event as we will not be able to accommodate all speaker requests. October is a very busy month for Komen Atlanta staff and volunteers. To request a speaker please complete our Speaker Request Form.
