Dannon launches "Cups of Hope" for Breast Cancer

October is breast cancer awareness month and here's a really simple way to support research.

Dannon Company, Inc. has partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation on a program called "Cups of Hope."

Participation is simple.

Look for cups of Dannon yogurt with a special pink lid. On the inside of the lid is a code.

Go to and enter the code. Each code may be entered only once, but it is possible to enter more than one code successfully.

Dannon will donate 10 cents for each lid through November 30.

However, all yogurts are not created equally.

Yogurt is a dairy product -- and while dairy is allowed on a vegetarian diet -- many yogurts contain gelatin -- which is an animal product made from ground bones and skin.

Chris and I have found two flavors of Dannon's All Natural yogurt -- vanilla and caramel -- that contain pectin -- a gelling agent made from fruit.

Why only two flavors in this particular line? Who knows.

But, at least we can contribute to the cause and keep our humanity.
