Throughout the month of October, I've decided to post some interesting articles and facts about Breast Cancer to help educate us all, get us talking and raise money for research. There are so many ways to support this cause!
One very easy way is to have your website "Go Pink for October." The following is from their website:
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.
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.
In 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.
So, let's all do our part, GO PINK and support Breast Cancer Awareness!!
