Bookstore Supports Breast Cancer Research

The Truman Bookstore has launched an innovative program during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month that will let students support breast cancer research by temporarily changing their Facebook profile picture.

Through this program, Barnes & Noble College Booksellers, which operates the Truman Bookstore, will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Coalition (NBCC)-up to $5,000 for every student who changes their profile picture to the breast cancer awareness pink ribbon symbol during the month of October.

The Truman Bookstore kicked off the promotion by changing its Facebook profile picture to the pink ribbon symbol. Fans can save that picture to their desktop, upload it as their own profile picture and then leave a comment on the bookstore’s fan page.

Fans do not need to use the pink ribbon as their profile picture for the entire month. As long as they use it at some point in October and leave a comment on the bookstore’s fan page, their participation will be counted toward the donation.

To become a fan, search “Truman State University Bookstore” on Facebook.
