Pink for October

We have gone Pink for October!

Go Pink!In 2006 a brand new movement started with the sole purpose of supporting Breast Cancer Awareness.  The idea was to change the colours of every website to pink (hence the name “pink for october” ).  Cancer is one of the most dangerous and aggressive diseases of our days and Breast Cancer is one of the most spread and deadly for women (although men have it too).

You might see a lot of websites  Going Pink during October to bring attention to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, get people talking about breast cancer, and raise money for research.

The hope is that people turn their sites pink (in whatever way works for the site), go out to that World Wide Web thing and educate each other about the multiple issues related to Breast Cancer, then take that new-found knowledge and tell someone else what has been learned.

Apparently in 2006 (the first year of the project) there was roughly 1500 sites that Went Pink.  2007 saw roughly 3000 sites Go Pink and in 2008 this had increased to around 15,000 sites.

Pink for October are looking to make an even bigger splash in 2009, can you help?
