I'm happy to announce that once again we'll be participating in the Going Pink for October campaign. Pink for October is an initiative to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research by making websites pink and wearing a badge.
This year along with with wearing a pink badge on our websites we will also be sponsoring a prize for a contest the P4O website will be holding, increasing awareness through our graphic design shop by offering banners and badges and featuring several postings here throughout the month of October.
Since Etsy doesn't allow me to post free items in my graphic shop, the money earned from the sales of the banners and badges will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
I will be creating a specially designed Woven Wire Beaded Bracelet featuring a pink flower focal by the talented Zuda Gay, that also includes a pink ribbon bead and a selection of pink accompanying beads.
Sadly my mother lost her nine year battle with breast cancer when I was a child. She lived at a time when mammograms and prevention awareness were unheard of. I'm thankful that today we have measures which can help families live long lives together as breast cancer not only affects women but touches the lives of men as well.
It would be wonderful if you could help spread the word as well by posting a badge on your blog or shop. Together we can make a difference.
