Pinterest is a constantly updating source of fun, ideas, and support all year long. As part of our social media community, it’s a platform we love sharing ideas and memories on to keep the 3-Day spirit of love going the whole year long. If you haven’t checked out our Pinterest page, now is the time. Here are just a few of the things you will find on our boards…

Fundraising Ideas

You probably already know that your coaches, fellow teammates, and this blog are great sources of fundraising ideas, but we also have even more fundraising ideas on Pinterest! You can never have too many sources for inspiration, and our Pinterest page is especially great for craft and culinary ideas. Feel free to tag us in your favorite pins on Pinterest as well, to let us know when you see any ideas you love online.

Inspiration

From quotes that will lift you up when you need a motivating boost, to The ABC’s of the 3-Day, if you’re trying to show a future teammate just why this cause means so much to you, we have it on our boards. We work to keep you inspired all year long, because you keep us inspired each and every day!

A Fashion Show

Knowledge

We share Breast Cancer Facts, many of them directly from Susan G. Komen, to keep you informed and provide you with information that you can use in your fundraising letters. There are also facts and infographics about healthy eating, stretching and more, to make sure you are training safely and effectively.

Memories

After every event, we add some of our favorite photos to our Pinterest page, organized by event city. That makes it easy for you to bask in the memories of 3-Days past, and remember the magic of the Pink Bubble. We also have special boards to share The 3-Day Experience and memories of our amazing crew!

Motivation Monday: Making the Small Wins Count

Photo 1

Happy Monday! Though it might not be everyone’s favorite day of the week, Monday has an important spot in our lives. It’s a fresh start, and a chance for all of us to make the most of the new week. What could we accomplish?

Maybe, make a new fundraising project?

Or use our favorite tunes to fuel an extra-long training walk for the 3-Day?

Share a memory with your 3-Day family?

Or join them online to start working your way to great prizes?

Maybe you do all that in one day!

Sometimes though, despite our best intentions, the days get away from us and sometimes things go wrong. We might miss a deadline or burn breakfast or run late to an appointment. On tough days, especially on tough Mondays, it’s also important to celebrate life’s little wins.

Happy moments can come upon you when you least expect it, and they are definitely worth celebrating.

So, celebrate the next time you…
