Hanes and Blogalicious9 could not have picked a better year to be partners as they each recognized breast cancer survivors.
October has traditionally been a month where Breast Cancer Awareness is center stage. There are many walks – as well as runs – scheduled by schools, Corporations, Churches, social clubs and neighborhoods. Hanes has done something that will help breast cancer survivors feel a little special.
At a recent Blogalicious9 conference, attendees were asked to fill out a questionnaire with basic information. We were then invited to see all of the wonderful products Hanes offers the consumer.
I am quite familiar with Hanes as a good quality producer of comfort clothing. I wear tagless t-shirts that wick moisture from my body. Some use these t-shirts for running or jogging. I wear mine while gardening. I can break into a sweat in my Hanes t-shirt and not worry about excessive moisture sitting on my shoulders or back. Hanes products are always easy to find and a pleasure to wear.
Partnering with Hanes really touched my heart this year. The Hanes representatives informed me that many women don’t know their true bra size. Therefore, many women are either under supported or just uncomfortable in ill-fitting bras. The Hanes professionals invited me to be measured so I could know my correct bra size. The invitation from Hanes was two-fold.
Once measured by the Hanes professionals, I was excited to receive my gift. In addition to receiving my proper bra size, I was also was able to help other women in need. Hanes has committed to donate 10 bras to @SHAREing. @SHAREing is an organization that helps women who are cancer survivors. Breast and ovarian cancer is worth fighting to cure, as well as to survive. @SHAREing is there to help. Imagine a hotel with about 350+ women with something positive to talk about. For each of the women who were fitted, ten bras would be donated to cancer survivors. Isn’t this awesome?
In addition to being fitted for the proper bra, I received an AWESOME Pink Hanes comfort bra, as well as a soft pink official Blogalicious9 t-shirt. Hanes has made me feel proud to wear and support their products today, as well as, over the years.
Hanes and Blogalicious9 have made this a meaningful month so far. Knowing that I have supported two brands with a conscience is a beautiful thing.Thank you Blogalicious9 for a great conference and for partnering with Hanes.

I swear by Hanes for all of over underwear and socks needs. we even have adult Hanes tees we turned into art smocks.

OMG I am sad I missed Blogalicious this year. I was traveling elsewhere but I was following the “tribe” online glad you had a good time this year and Hanes is always a trusted brand for me.
I cannot imagine NOT having a good time at a Blogalicious event. Hanes and Blogalicious hit it out of the park for me in addition to some other exciting brands. Stay tuned, I have more to share!! Thank you for commenting on my blog!
This is a great partnership. My mother is a breast cancer survivor so I always support the cause. I like many women have no idea what my true bra size is.

What a great review for Hanes. I think you really meant what you said (smile) I didn’t realize their tshirts wicked perspiration.
Thank you for visiting the Cottage In The Court. OH YES – I believe in Hanes products. I got some of the t-shirts that wick moisture for my Dad. When you garden passionately sweating can sometimes become an issue. If you sweat and then go inside in air conditioning, it is easy to catch a cold. With the wicking t-shirts, the sweat does not stay on the skin. It is this gardener’s dream t-shirt! Thank you for commenting on my blog and please continue t follow – I have so much more to share!!
I have been a member of the Blogalicious community for over 9 years. The knowledge that I capture from each conference is amazing. The approach is kind f changing this year to capture smaller audiences and share more meaningful experiences – but that is all good! Growth is good!!! Thank you for reading my blog and I hope you will continue to follow. I have so much more to share!
As a blogger, I strongly feel that the Blogalicious Community is well worth joining and exploring. Although I receive so much information every year on how to grow my blog I do not always act upon those hints and tips immediately. The conference offers so much and the friendships that are made are just awesome. Thank you for reading and commenting in my blog. I hope you continue to follow, I have so much more to share!
