The Pink Ribbon

4 years ago

A while ago, quite a few people were angered by the actions of the Susan G. Komen foundation.  I saw numerous posts saying people would no longer support them and I understand that sentiment.

However, use of the pink ribbon on products in October is not limited to just the Susan G. Komen foundation.  If you choose not to support one organization or another, always check the package before you purchase.

The pink ribbon is used during October by a large number of breast cancer charities.  When opting to purchase a pink ribbon product, the specific charity will be listed on the package.  You can still support breast cancer awareness this month without giving your money to an organization that does not share your views.

Also remember, the Susan G. Komen foundation did reverse their decision and revamped their administration.  Just a thought to keep in mind.

It's October...Buy Pink...and Fight like a girl!!!!!
