I just realized that October is breast cancer awareness month after reading that Pelf is going pink. She even changed her theme to pink. What the Pink for October website and the others joining this movement are doing is to raise awareness to the public regarding breast cancer.
How can you help?
According to the info in Pelf’s post, you can do either one (or more) of these:
- Go pink. Wear pink clothes. If you are blogging, change or modify your current theme to a pink theme. Wear a pink ribbon. Etc etc etc.
- Design badges and banners. Many others have helped designed pretty Go Pink! badges for others to download and include in their blog. I am using one of them too.
- Design blog themes. If you are good at designing or modifying blog themes, do it! Not only are you helping to spread the message, you will be getting tons of back links when people start using your theme. A win-win situation is what I see.
- Help spread the word. If you really can’t do any of those above, just help by writing a post to spread the message across.
What am I doing to help?
Well, I can’t imagine myself turning my blog pink. LOL. I am really sorry but I don’t think I can. So, the next best thing would be to (1) include a Go Pink for October badge in my blog and (2) write a post to help spread the message.
I believe these campaigns are a good way for bloggers to give back to the society. I manage to raise over $400 for MAKNA previously when I joined Blogathon 2007 a few months back. It was an exciting journey.
Go pink and help make a difference.
