It shows that people care and recognize the sadness that follows with breast cancer. While donating to charities is of course helpful, not everyone can, and for those who can't, support means a lot.
Bob, I'm right there with you! I'm sharing everything pink I can find with anyone who wants to spread our message of love and support. I just lost a dear friend who left behind three children, the youngest age 2. My husband lost his grandmother to it and his aunt has battled it. Sharing info on breast cancer is critical for all of us. Men die from it, too, and it's an ugly thing. Thanks so much to EVERYONE who is spreading the word to remind people about this deadly disease and how important regular screenings are for all people. It is truly a silent killer. If anyone in your family has had it, men and women alike should be screened for it.
Ps: Mental Illness awareness day is coming up... get your yellow fashion ready for that one special day!!!
My apologies for not seeing this posting sooner. I'm close to getting my degree in June. I think this whole post is pretty amazing! While some feel it doesn't help it just might. If the servers see many wearing the color people will ask why. That in itself is spreading awareness to those who might say,"I didn't know."
With that being said it would be nice to mention the many causes that have affected peoples lives. My cause is for my parents (r.i.p), The American Heart Association which is red in February. Gun Violence Awareness which is orange in June.
