What’s with All the Pink?

Pink for October logo

After hearing about Pink for October from Chris “Limber Creative” Arnold’s tweet, I decided to do some investigating. It turned out that it involved a lot of things that are near and dear to my heart: websites, breast cancer awareness, and nerdy ways to raise said awareness. I couldn’t resist. 525creative will go pink for the month of October!

A few years ago, my Mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Thankfully, she kicked breast cancer’s ass and is still going strong, but I’ve never found a good way to show support for the cause outside of running 5k races. Then it occurred to me: breast cancer is always a popular cause, but there hasn’t been a foolproof, works every time cure yet… Maybe the 525creative website will be the tipping point!

No, probably not… but you can make an actual difference by donating your time, efforts or money to organizations like Komen Denver (where I live), Komen Northwest Ohio (where my Mom lives), or visit the national site for Susan G. Komen for the Cure to find information on your local chapter.

Thanks for listening!
