Tickled Pink - For a Great Cause.....

In the Fall of 1991, the Susan G. Komen for the Cure handed out pink ribbons to participants in their NYC race for breast cancer survivors. From there - other people and organizations worked together to promote breast cancer awareness throughout the world - and pink has become the international color symbolizing this effort. 

So in celebration of my love of pink - and in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, I've highlighted a few of my favorite things ....

Lovely jewelry....

Pink Brooch
Links of London Cord Bracelet


Fun little bath toys....
Pink Ribbon Rubber Duckies

Great styling products.....
Pink Conair Hairdryer

Chi Flat Iron and Hairbrush set

Comfy flip flops....
Switchflops from Lindsay Phillips


Cheers for the Cure.....

Sutter Home Cheers for the Cure


Looking good running.....
New Balance Running Shoes



IPOD Nano case

Pink Heart Rate Monitor


 Chic Crafting necessities.....
Pink Tool Kit


Pink Readers

And because my kitties have to be supportive as well.....these are their favorite pick's:

Pink Petmate

Fluffy Pink Cat Bed


Pink Kitty Bowl


So here's to celebrating the color pink - in the name of finding a cure for breast cancer.

What a wonderful post. I see so many sad cases every day here. And, no matter what I do, I still feel it is not enough. God bless every woman and their family that is touched by breast cancer. Hugs for raising the awareness- Diana

Great collection of pink, and a wonderful cause. My oldest sister had breast cancer about 7 years ago, but thankfully they caught it in the early stages and she is now fine.

You never know... your post might remind someone to get tested, might raise the one $ needed to fund a cure. One person, with a good heart, can do amazing things :-)

So many people are touched by cancer, so any opportunity to promote cancer awareness and help raise money for the cause is a good thing :-)
