Pink For October


You might have noticed (assuming you aren't google readering this) that my blog has taken on a new hue undertone. Well, there is a very good cause for it. I am going Pink for October!

Web sites will Go Pink during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research. But to be clear, raising money isn’t the primary purpose of this web event. The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.

About

Web sites will Go Pink during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research.

But to be clear, raising money isn’t the primary purpose of this web event.

The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), go out to that World Wide Web thing and educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that newfound knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.

We hope that you will:

1. Turn your web site/blog pink (however you like, it’s up to you).
2. Educate yourself about the multiple issues related to breast cancer.
3. Take that newfound knowledge and teach someone else what you know.

Consider redesigning your site for the month of October — Go Pink!

2006 (our first year) was a great start with the roughly 1500 sites that Went Pink. 2007 saw roughly 3000 sites Go Pink. We are looking to make an even bigger splash in 2008, but we’ll need your help to do it.

Blog about it, invite others to join, become involved, help increase awareness, learn something new, and teach others what you know.

Many thanks!

Now here's my snafu. There is a "downloads" page where you can use buttons and banners for your blogs or websites. I am a fan of adding one of the two shown below... but I have et to figure out how. I know almost squat about HTML code and as far as I can tell, I can't actually download them... anyone who figures it out - let me know!!



Pink and breast cancer awareness will be the center of attention in some upcoming posts. Anything from great favor ideas that fund mammograms, to bachlorette party ideas! Stay tuned!

Since you've already gone pink, perhaps you'd also like to also take part in our month-long contest?

There is also a "Share Your Story" segment where you can share a true story, or encourage your friend/family/neighbour/colleague to share theirs.

Head on to Pink for October website for more details! :D
