Being in Australia, I've decided to gather some information and links about Pink Ribbon Day. There's also more links at the side.
Did you know: One in every nine Australian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer by the age of 85.
The Pink Ribbon Day:
The 4th Monday in October is also the Pink Ribbon Day which lines on the 26th of October 2009 this year. It is our chance to help raise money and awareness for all women affected by breast cancer.
There are a great range of items available online via the Pink Ribbon Shop - http://www.pinkribbonshop.org.au/ such as accessories, gift packs, t-shirts, kitchen products, which look amazing!
There are also these items available at certain participating retailers only in Australia. You girls have to see the Diamante Pin! It's Gorgeous!!
So how and where would the money raised by these merchandises by used?
All the raised will go towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation's research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer. The NBCF is the leading community-funded national organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention and cure of breast cancer.
And this is not all. There are also many companies that has launched editions of Breast Cancer Awareness product, where a percentage of your purchase goes to charities that help fund these researches. So when you go shopping girls, make sure to look for these special pink products!
