Pretty In Pink

October is National Breast Cancer Month, and everywhere you look women are getting involved. Thinking of joining them? There are heaps of ways to show your support, such as:
*going Pink shopping!
*wearing your Pink Ribbon on Pink Ribbon Day (October 22)
*attending an NBCF event, such as the PINK National Women's Triathlon Series launching in Sydney on October 20
*attending the Concert for the Cure (date to be confirmed)
*plain old donating
*heaps more!
Another such way to raise funds is to hold a breakfast. I read about this idea sometime last year, and decided it would be a wonderful way to show support for the NBCF as well as having fun with heaps of my girlfriends, at what's sure to be a Girl's Only event. Due to an overseas trip, camping and a large-scale production I was involved in at the time, the breakfast sadly didn't end up happening.
But I'm determined to get it off the ground this year. So I've started researching, and reading up about everything I need to do to put a breakfast on. On the Pink Ribbon Breakfast website, they've announced that kits containing merchandise and such are no longer available (probably due to the whopping 7, 500 registrations they've already received), but no matter. It will be harder now, but only makes it more worthwhile.

Of course, a great way to show your support is to purchase some Pink products. Some favourites of mine are:

Diamante Pin -- $10

Pink Polo -- $29.95

Apron -- $19.95

Bianca Dye Mount Franklin Tote Bag -- $9.95

All this and more can be found at the Pink Ribbon online store.
Good luck and happy philanthropy! :-)
