Go Pink for October

By Char

pink for octoberEach October websites across the world go pink in support of a very good cause – Breast Cancer research.  Last year approximately 800 sites registered their pinkness with Pink for October. With October just around the corner, have you given any thought to going pink? Check out my 13 favorite Pink for October designs from last year if you need any inspiration.

My personal site went pink last year and will do the same this year, but as I roll out a new look for Essential Keystrokes over the next few weeks, it just may have some pink attitude as well.

On a related note, another big blogging meets a good cause event in October is Blog Action Day, which already has more than 4,000 blogs committed to help raise awareness about Poverty across the world. Last year’s event focused on going green for the environment was a huge success (read my 5 Rs for a Greener World entry) with more than 15,000 blogs participating.

As October gets closer, consider using your voice to help support both of these very worthwhile events.
