After a long absence we are back to help websites and individuals to “Go Pink” for October. Our mission is a simply one ~ to turn the internet Pink for October in an effort to help bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research.
Unlike corporations, our goal is not to make money. Our hope is that you educate yourself about the many issues related to Breast Cancer, turn your site pink in whatever manner works for you ~ from selecting one of our free buttons or backgrounds to using your own pink photo ~ then take that knowledge and spread it forward.
We hope that you will:
1. Turn your web site, blog, shop or social profile pink (however you like, it’s up to you).
2. Educate yourself about the multiple issues related to breast cancer.
3. Take that new-found knowledge and teach someone else what you know.
Feel free to contact us if you are interested in helping with this event. But even if you don’t have time to dedicate, consider redesigning your site for the month of October — Go Pink!
Originally started in 2006 by Matthew Oliphant, he carried the pink torch for many years with the help of so many wonderful volunteers whose names you’ll see spread across these pages. From 2006 through 2009 the PinkforOctober.org website experienced an increase in participation seeing over 15,000 sites in their final active year.
With a fresh new start it is our hope to continue on with Matthew’s original mission, to spread the word, go pink, educate and empower. Join us in on journey once again, by exploring our new website and getting involved.
Thank you for visiting ~ now it’s time to spread the word ~ blog about it, invited others to join, become involved, help increase awareness, learn something new, and teach others what you know.
Many thanks ~ to Matthew and to all of you!
