You might be wondering why for the rest of October all of the links you see around Just Blog Baby in our columns are pink.
Well Just Blog Baby along with Fansided.com’s NFL team of blogs will be using pink hyperlinks for the rest of October as part of the NFL’s Cancer Awareness Month.
Well you see pink all over NFL games in October, we are showing our solidarity by splashing pink all over our pages for the rest of the month.
Here is the official statement on Cancer Awareness Month from the NFL
The NFL, its clubs, players and the NFL Players Association are proud to support the fight against breast cancer. Our campaign, “A Crucial Catch”, in partnership with the American Cancer Society, is focused on the importance of annual screenings, especially for women who are 40 and older. Throughout October, NFL games will feature players, coaches and referees wearing pink game apparel, on-field pink ribbon stencils, special game balls and pink coins – all to help raise awareness for this important campaign. All apparel worn at games by players and coaches, along with special game balls and pink coins will be auctioned off at NFL Auction, with proceeds benefiting the American Cancer Society’s Community Health Advocates National Grants for Empowerment (CHANGE) program. The CHANGE program provides outreach and breast cancer screenings to women in underserved communities. The NFL markets being supported in the first year of the program are Atlanta, Baltimore, New England, Charlotte, Chicago, Cleveland, Denver, Detroit, Indianapolis, Jacksonville, Kansas City, New Orleans, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Seattle, and Washington, DC. In addition, this year will mark the 15th anniversary of Zeta Tau Alpha’s ThinkPink Ribbon Distribution Fan Outreach Program, which has donated over 5 million pink ribbons to NFL fans at games around the nation.
We at Just Blog Baby are more than happy to help support cancer awareness and I have personally dealt with cancer striking my family in the past, we hope that you can adjust to all of the pink you are going to be seeing for the next 24 days. It is truly for a great cause.
