Here are the sad stats, 41 % of people will have a fight with cancer at least one time in their lives. One out of two men, and one out of three women will struggle with this deadly disease.
This month of October has been extremely successful helping to give organizations a month long platform to show their support of Breast Cancer Research.
National corporations, and every NFL team has adopted the wearing of pink ribbons, pink cleats, pink shirts, pink wing tip shoes, and pink ties. What is your organization doing to show their involvement. Surely, just by wearing pink, will do about nothing at all.
However, when millions and millions who are wearing 'Pink', and creating a Breast Cancer Drive, in a little way, like bring $10 bucks, instead of doughnuts to work for a month, or have a car wash at your school where the cheerleaders and the varsity football team can wash a line of cars in your school's parking lot, or have a countywide, 'Pink Fair'.
We can help to fund more research, and help turn this pink, into Green Money !
"If one million people could raise just $50 dollars, that would equal $50,000,000" exclaims Tom Livsey, Blog Talk National Talk Show Host
He adds, " Are you guys and gals, 'All In" ? I dare you all to wear Pink and Raise $50 buck a piece ! Let's all of us ,'Pink Out', and 'Green In', this October 2013."
