7 inspirations for Think Pink's last week

Fundraising drive will have you in the pink…

WE’RE NOT USED to looking at things through rose-tinted glasses right now – but you have five days left to change that.

The Marie Keating Foundation has been running a Think Pink fundraising campaign (don’t worry boys, there was a Blue September too to raise awareness for men’s health issue) for the month of February and it ends on Tuesday next. Essentially, groups in businesses, community groups, schools and colleges choose a day to wear something pink and make a donation to the Foundation. (There may be sightings of some pink-attired members of TheJournal.ie and our colleagues at the Distilled Group tomorrow…)

If you plan to hold one of these days, you should get details from MarieKeating.ie and get inspiration from our pink mood slideshow:
