That Too


In honor of the dawn of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, many bloggers are posting "pink" today. As a cynic, I have to do the post in my own way. And so for My New Favorite Blog this week, I present Think Before You Pink:
Think Before You Pink, a project of Breast Cancer Action, launched in 2002 in response to the growing concern about the overwhelming number of pink ribbon products and promotions on the market. The campaign calls for more transparency and accountability by companies that take part in breast cancer fundraising, and encourages consumers to ask critical questions about pink ribbon promotions.

  1. Great post, Mamacita, and my sentiments exactly.

    Also, a few of us were thinking that since we weren't invited to the popular girls' trip to Palm Springs we should do a trip of our own...you in?

  4. The only way lentils would show up on this vaction is if there was an alcohol that was made with them!

    Vacation is vacation, man. Food, drink and FUN!

  6. Yeah! So glad you included information about Think Before You Pink If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the other side of Yoplait’s so-called save lids/save lives campaign.
    http://www.thinkbeforeyoupink.org/Pages/TakeAction.html : Yoplait makes its yogurt with milk from cows treated with rBGH, a synthetic growth hormone. And get this - use of rBGH has been linked with breast cancer, not to mention a number of other health issues. (You can send a letter to Yoplait through the Think Before You Pink web site.)
