Every now and again fashion can fight cancer. It’s not usually life-changing stuff, this clothes business, but when when October rolls around and the National Breast Cancer Foundation asks us to think pink to raise awareness and funds for cancer, we say hell yeah and get busy pulling apart our wardrobes.
This is how it went down:
First things first... pink cupcakes.
And now it’s your turn. This is your challenge: wear pink. Simple. Whether you go head-to-toe, rally the office together for a themed, fund-raiser morning tea (not as hard as it looks, promise), or just wear a pink ribbon tomorrow, we want to see it.
There are heaps of ways to submit your photos – upload as a comment, to Instagram and tag @mamamiaaus, or by emailing email@example.com. Take your pick and get snapping.
Here is some pink inspiration from Mamamia Shopping to get you on your way:
If you want to help the fight against breast cancer this October there are two simple things you can do: STOP & PINK.
STOP assuming that the problem is solved. 1 in 9 women, a horrifying statistic, are diagnosed with breast cancer and it’s still the most common cause of death of women under 40.
Take some PINK action by registering with Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon to raise money for breast cancer research, prevention and support.
