Pink Yoplait® lids have hit the shelves! It’s time for the ZTA Save Lids to Save Lives® lid collection! Pink Yoplait lids will be available mid-September through November (or while supplies last). 

For my Zeta sisters:  Help us reach our goal of 400,000 pink Yoplait lids! This year, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen, PLUS an additional 5 cents to the ZTA Foundation for every pink lid collected by ZTA. That's a total of $20,000 to the ZTA Foundation! Lid collection kits are being shipped to collegiate and alumnae chapters by Yoplait. 

All lids must be sent to International Office by December 15th. Please use the lid submission form when mailing in your lids.

My afternoon snack:  Yoplait light red velvet cake.  Gluten free and with only 90 calories, this yogurt has 5g of protein and is high in calcium, too!

I know that many of you participate in Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure events, and you run, walk, jog in honor of and in memory of those who have suffered the affects of breast cancer.  You rock!

Until next time...

Think Pink!
