Put A Pink Pumpkin On Your Porch!


According to the latest statistics available from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), breast cancer is one of the leading causes of death among women. More than 210,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States in 2008 and more than 40,500 died from the disease in that one single year. Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women.

Let's get together and  help raise funds for breast cancer research! There is a new foundation called The Pink Pumpkin Patch and they are promoting a natural pink-skinned pumpkin, which is debuting all across the country this October just in time for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
These pink pumpkins are part of the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation’s national campaign, “Pink Pumpkins on Your Porch – Let’s Unite Against Breast Cancer.” The campaign is designed to encourage everyone to join the fight against breast cancer by placing pink pumpkins on their porches and in their homes as part of their annual Halloween and fall d├ęcor.
In support of “Pink Pumpkins on Your Porch,” the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation has partnered with pumpkin farm owners and growers across the country who have agreed to $.25 per pumpkin to the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation. Funds will then be donated to breast cancer research organizations.
The fact is breast cancer is one of the top most common cancers in women but we can improve this harrowing statistic. I've never really know anyone with breast cancer, aside from the patients I worked with undergoing breast reconstruction surgery. I've seen plenty of fundraising initiatives over the years, but this is by far the coolest! I hope you will stand against cancer and raise money for research by putting a pink pumpkin on your porch this fall! Please spread the word! Click here to find a pink pumpkin seller near you!
