Hello all! I am hoping you have a wonderful day today.
Today, October 13th was National Think Pink Day - My place of employment encouraged the staff to Wear Pink! And did they... it was very nice. A group photo was taken and much togetherness was shown.
In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the integral role of early detection in the prevention of breast cancer, nationwide government employees are encouraged to celebrate National Think Pink Day on Thursday, October 13th by wearing a pink ribbon and/or pink clothing to work.
One of the primary goals of Breast Cancer Awareness Month is to "Pass the Word" regarding the importance of a woman's decision to engage in early detection of breast cancer, including: • Mammography screenings; • Clinical breast exams performed by health care providers; and • Breast self-examinations (both men and women).
The pink ribbon is a widely recognized symbol of breast cancer awareness. By wearing a pink ribbon and/or pink clothing on Thursday, October 13th, you are helping to "Pass the Word" and raise awareness of breast cancer among your fellow employees.
I'll continue to think pink! Have a wonderful evening.... can't wait to get crafty tomorrow.
