For the Pink October, I have first put together some of my favourite flowers:
Even though the topic is serious, raising money can be fun and engaging - together with others, grab something pink, eat something pink, have pink drinks... Wear it pink! (In Finland, the Pink Ribbon Day is on the tenth of October this year.)
Commercialization of charitable causes is a controversial issue: companies happily strengthen their image and boost their revenue by "supporting the fight" against, say, breast cancer. It seems, however, that some firms are more conscientious than others and some types of merchandise more reasonable than others. Among the pink products (sold in Finland), my favourites include for example fair trade roses and sock knitting yarn.
Have a lovely, pink October!
