I’ve written a post about my aunt who passed away because of breast cancer before in Life Oh Life, and while I was searching for the ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’ site, I’ve stumbled upon these two interesting blogs: ChanKelwin.com and Pelf-ism is Contagious. I’m so happy because at least I can do something in effort to raise the awareness on breast cancer.
How can you help?
*Below are the four points, recommended by Pelf:-
1. Spread the word. Announce the event on your blog. You could write a blog post (like this), or a little note about it. Whatever you choose to do, just go ahead and tell your readers about it.
2. Go pink. Modify your theme if you know how to, or get yourself a pretty pink theme. If you run a website, turn your website pink. But if you don’t like pink, you could still participate by putting up a badge on your sidebar.
3. Design badges and banners. Design a couple of “Pink for October” badges or banners for other participants to use (for free) and to publicize the event. Some of the existing badges and banners can be downloaded from the Official Pink for October Site.
4. Design blog themes. There are a lot of bloggers (me included) who can’t even do simple designing, so if you are good at it, perhaps you could design and release a few pink themes?
So, I am hoping that whoever happens to read my post, please do something to spread the awareness. It only takes a moment of our time.
Additional Note: How far would this ‘Pink Penguin’ goes? How well would the awareness spread?? Thus, I’ve just come up with the idea by tagging all the amazing women in my blogroll who I know will be glad to help in spreading the words.
