I've been wearing the Pink Ribbon - the international symbol of support for the Breast Cancer Awareness Month - whenever I've gone out these days and so have some of my friends. Its a simple yet powerful statement.
So, I thought that another way we might all show our support for this cause might be to create a collage or several smaller collages of many of us wearing the Pink Ribbon. Here are photos of myself, my Mom and 2 of my chums, Amy and Jerlaine all wearing the Pink Ribbon
Me & The Pink Ribbon
My Mommy and The Pink Ribbon
Amy & The Pink Ribbon
Jerlaine & The Pink Ribbon
The Pink Ribbons we are all wearing are from the Clinique and Estee Lauder counters in all shopping malls - they're available for the public to take and proudly wear.
There is also another pin-styled Pink Ribbon which I purchased from Tangs (also available at Watsons for SGD$5)
So here's what I thought you could do - you can send me a photograph of yourself, your mom, your siblings, girlfriends or whoever, wearing The Pink Ribbon - you need not even show your face (like what my mom, Amy and Jerlaine have done); just as long as the Pink Ribbon is visible on your clothes, your necklace, bag, anything!
At the end of the month, hopefully, if there are enough photos, I could compile them all and post it together with whatever details you wish to divulge (as a form of credit to you) and we could send the link to the local Breast Cancer Foundation - I am sure they will be very happy to see so many young women (and men!) showing support for the Pink Cause.
I would be very very very grateful if you all could join me and my friends in spreading the message. Send in your photos (email attachment size would do) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 25 Oct 2011.
Let's paint the town PINK shall we?
