As many of you who follow UV Skinz and our story know, May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. For the fourth year we ran our annual Save a Baby’s Skin Campaign, unleashing our super cute My First Skinz on you, and had a blast doing it. In addition to our own awareness campaigns last month marked the second year that we had donated to AIM at Melanoma. They are a hard working group that sponsors awareness walks all over the nation during the month of May. These walks generate thousands of dollars each year for melanoma research. Their mission is near and dear to us and our own mission:
To increase support for melanoma research; to promote prevention and education among the general public and medical professionals; and to provide comprehensive and easily accessible melanoma resources for patients, survivors, and caregivers.
Each year we donate as much swag and literature as we can muster in hopes that we will raise prevention awareness for the participants and their families. We donated to over a dozen awareness walks and events this year and hope to help out many more in the future. If you know of any organizations or events that you think could use some awareness/prevention literature or products be sure to let us know. We want to get people covered all over the world and we can do it, with your help!
