What can we do to help?
During October there was the opportunity to buy special items from this website
such as the 'Making Strides' Peace Bear (now sold out)
as well as another special bear and the 2004 Cancer Research UK BCA pin badge

There was also a series of eBay auctions of pink items
If you lived in UK you could take part in the 'Making Strides' event

This is a sponsored walk taking part in various locations in UK and is suitable for all the family
Or you could sponsor my family, taking part in the Marlow event on 24th October

You and some friends could 'Get into the Pink'
You could host a tea party or coffee morning, a girly evening or a day at work
Encourage guests to wear something pink
You could go completely cerise
or more restrained rose
or just wear a pink ribbon or rosebud

or perhaps the lovely Cancer Research UK pink scarf
available from their website at £4.99

Ask pink-wearers to donate a pound or a pile of pennies for doing so
Serve them pink food and drinks

It doesn't all have to be sweet food -
How about salmon, salami and shrimps?
At work we had a pink brunch

Sell guests pink tickets for a pink raffle
You could ask them to provide a pink prize for the draw
You could ask local shops and businesses to donate pink prizes
such as rose wine, pink cakes, pink cosmetics and flowers

A 'budding' gardener could plant up some pink hyacinth bulbs
in pretty pots, all tied up with a pink ribbon
These would make great Christmas presents!

Invite guests to pay a small entry fee to enter some pink competitions
such as guessing the name of the pink teddy
or guessing the weight of the pink cake

or a pink treasure hunt
Perhaps you could theme your event
a 'Pink Pleasure Party'

with pampering make-overs
and relaxing aromatherapy
perhaps a flower-arranging demonstration
or a fashion show (pink of course!)

You could buy a special Fuschia Card to send a friend

10% of the proceeds are donated to Cancer Research UK
Lisa from Planet Beans
makes beautiful Cancer Awareness bracelets
from which she donates a portion of the profits to Cancer Research

If you have your own website it could wear a pink ribbon too
as a show of support
Carol Sutton's wonderful website
offers a great selection of copyright-free ribbons
