This October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and Mills & Boon are proud to be partnering with ASDA to raise money and awareness for their Breast Cancer campaign, Tickled Pink.
We will be donating 10% of sales of stickered books in ASDA directly to Tickled Pink’s chosen charities Breast Cancer Care and Breast Cancer Now. We’d love you to have a look for the stickered books out in the wild, and share them with us @MillsandBoon using #TickledPink!
The 40p donation will also be boosted by Mills & Boon author collections in 20 different ASDA stores across the UK on Friday 5th – Sunday 7th October. The authors in locations in Scotland, England and Wales will be armed with bespoke Mills & Boon Tickled Pink t-shirts. Be sure to check out our complete list below to see where our authors will be collecting, and head down to show your support!
Keep your eyes peeled throughout October as we’ll be replacing the ampersand in Mills & Boon with the Tickled Pink ribbon in print, online and on social.
Joanna Rose, Marketing Director at Mills & Boon, said: “We know that many of our authors and readers, and their friends and family, have been affected– directly or indirectly – by Breast Cancer, and we are delighted to be able to raise money and awareness for this important and worthy cause. Mills & Boon books are written by women for women, and it is fitting that we are working with Asda to help fight a disease that affects so many women every year.”
We’d love everyone to get involved throughout October by taking snaps of our stickered books on shelf in ASDA, sharing our assets on social using #TickledPink and raising money for this great cause!
