Tomorrow starts a new month, and with that new month, a new set of causes, holidays, celebrations and commemorations. It’s a lot to keep track of, especially if your business or organization is counted on to know about these things, promote them, celebrate them or raise awareness about them. I’m one of those people myself, counted on to know what’s going on on a given week or day, and honestly, I’d be lost if it weren’t for a really handy, but under-promoted page on PinMart’s website: The Awareness Calendar!
This calendar, which we update throughout the year to reflect the most accurate dates and distinctions of given holidays or awareness causes, is definitely my event calendar. It gives me a heads up on when to wear my American flag lapel pin (though I could argue that that’s a good one to wear every day!), gives me a clue as to why people are suddenly wearing puzzle piece lapel pins (Autism awareness in April), and when to get my dad’s father’s day card to him (June 15th). Our Cause/Awareness calendar is really thorough, and also provides good ideas on pins that can help you represent and celebrate anything upcoming.
May’s a big one, with National Teacher’s Day, National Nurse’s Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day, and let’s not forget about Cinco De Mayo, to name but a few important happenings over the next 31 days.
And whether you get decked out in lapel pins for all of these events, or just give your thanks and support with words and actions, check out the Awareness Calendar to make sure you don’t miss a thing. Happy May!
