Pinktober is in full swing! Pink ribbons are everywhere — from football players to cereal boxes and everything in between. I’m not a fan of the whole pink ribbon thing, and I’m not a supporter of SGK for numerous reason. I think we’re all pretty “aware”.
That said, I think it’s awesome when people support local organizations that help those battling cancer (breast or otherwise) through financial or other means of assistance. In my corner of the world, there are a number of organizations that do just that, including Candy’s Place: A Cancer Wellness Center, the Northeast Regional Cancer Institute, and, my personal favorite, Michele’s Ladies in Pink.
Ladies in Pink, as I have mentioned previously, is an organization that raises money for local women fighting breast cancer, as well as others fighting any type of cancer. Today was their 10th Annual Ladies in Pink Party, and in those 10 years, they have given out well over $125,000!!! That’s just amazing! As a beneficiary of their hard work and generosity, I can attest to how much they have truly helped so many people. I am so proud of all of the women who celebrate and honor the life of their sister and friend, Michele Z.
I urge you, wherever you are, to donate to your local organizations and help those in your communities who really need it. You might even have fun while you do!
