|If they can go pink so can you!|
IN A NUTSHELL:
1. WEAR PINK
2. GIVE FACTS
Here are the facts:
EASY! DO IT!
It's October, folks. Half-way through it and I just learn it's National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM). Good grief. Better late than never, I suppose.
One of my fondest memories of our time in Skopje, Macedonia was being a part of their first-ever Go Pink March. In April of 2006, Skopje, Macedonia's old stone bridge streamed with hundreds of pink-clad people for the first time since its foundation was built in Roman times. The "Kamen Most" which links the city center with the Old Bazaar has witnessed throughout the centuries, earthquakes, wars, and executions. Now, maybe, that bridge will link to hope.

Wouldn't this look awesome pink?
This year on Monday, October 22, the US Embassy in Belgrade will encourage folks to wear pink and will sell pink buttons to people who don't own pink or who just want to contribute to the cause. Proceeds from the sale of the buttons will go to support breast cancer prevention or treatment organizations.

Breast cancer knows no boundaries
So, if you are in a city in the world where there is no march, rally, or activity, do your own thing. Help save a life. WEAR PINK!
