October 26 : National Pink Hijab Day!


More than the color for breast cancer awareness, pink represents the promise between two sisters to find a cure for breast cancer. That promise started Susan G. Komen for the Cure and ignited the passion of millions to create a world without breast cancer.

Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures. Thanks to events like Passionately Pink for the Cure®, we have invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill our promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

Thanks for the heads up Angie! What's really cool is that Breast Cancer Awareness has reached the UAE big time (and hopefully the rest of the region too). Mrs. Bush's visit aside, there are pink ribbons everywhere here: from newspapers to shopping malls and schools.
