Pink for October

Alter Ego and Bolts of Silk have gone Pink for October!

Web sites are Going Pink during the month of October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research.
But to be clear, raising money isn’t the primary purpose of this web event.
The hope is that you turn your site pink (in whatever way works for your site), go out to that World Wide Web thing (in fact you’re on it right now! :) ) and educate yourself about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that newfound knowledge and tell someone else what you’ve learned.


For obvious reasons, Crafty Green Poet will remain green during October, but I'm experimenting with a delightful green and pink combination at the moment and will hopefully post something about the environmental factors in breast cancer.

Green doesn't contradict pink; quite the opposite. Read this, even though it's quite long: http://www.barbaraehrenreich.com/cancerland.htm or in one sentence: "...he inexorable increase of the disease in industrialized nations -- about one percent a year between the 1950s and the 1990s -- further hints at environmental factors, as does the fact that women migrants to industrialized countries quickly develop the same breast-cancer rates as those who are native born."

HI Nia, thanks for the link. That's not what I meant though. I meant literally and purely in terms of colour scheme.

However I've made Crafty Green Poet a delightful combination of green and pink for the month because you do have a point!
