"With the help of lid collectors across the country last year, we made every lid matter by reaching our $1.5 million donation goal to Susan G.

"There is so much more that needs to be done in the fight against breast cancer and by working with Dr. Funk we hope to raise awareness and generate funds to ultimately help save lives."

People can join Yoplait's awareness and fundraising efforts at YourLidMatters.com, where they can create online lid collection teams to engage and inspire friends, family and networks to collect and send in pink lids. People can also interact with Dr. Funk through 30-second breast health videos and a question and answer section.

Participating Yoplait products include all single serve yogurt cups -- Original, Light, Thick & Creamy, Light Thick & Creamy and Whips!, Yo-Plus Digestive Health multi-packs and select specially-marked packages of the Large Size Yoplait yogurts.
