October 01, 2014 // Franchising.com // MEMPHIS, TN - In honor of October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month, AmeriSpec, part of the ServiceMaster (NYSE: SERV) family of brands and one of the leading home inspection companies in the U.S., is going pink to help raise awareness and donations for the fight against breast cancer.
"Breast cancer is a very real risk for women and AmeriSpec is proud to help bring awareness through our national franchise base," said Rob Skinner, senior director of franchise operations. "Helping in this cause is very dear to our hearts and with so many families that we touch, it's important to educate people on this."
During the month of October, many AmeriSpec franchise owners chose to work with local charities of their choice to raise funds. For the franchisees who participate, AmeriSpec will match dollar for dollar up to a total of $50,000. Franchisees will conduct fundraisers, participate in walk/runs, or donate a portion of their services.
The American Cancer Society estimates one in eight women have a chance of invasive breast cancer in their life. Today, we have more than 2.8 million breast cancer survivors in the U.S. Early detection continues to be the key to survivability.
Other ways AmeriSpec franchise owners are going pink is through postcards, real estate flyers, early detection cards, pink bracelets, pink home inspection binders, pink booties and pink car magnets. The brand's support will also appear in Keller Williams Mega Camp trade show and Out Front Magazine, RISMedia Real Estate Magazine, and a RE/MAX online feature.
