Drink Pink!

image from farm4.static.flickr.com I've made a pledge to myself this month. I'm going to drink wine with a cause in mind. Anything I can do to help, you know.

What it means is that I'll be reviewing two types of wine this month: wine that directly supports breast cancer research through purchases, and ros├ęs, which are pink. Since it's Breast Cancer Awareness month, and even the NFL has gone pink, it's the least I can do. At the end of each post, I'll include a link where you can donate to the cause.

I'm one of the few people who hasn't been touched by breast cancer in any way. My family and friends have all been blissfully ignored by this particular cancer. However, that doesn't mean I don't live in fear of it a bit. I saw a statistic that other day that around 1 in 8 women will be touched by breast cancer in some way.

With that in mind, on with the cause!

  1. Does “Drink Pink” internationally recognize? I’m just wondering.

  2. Michelle says:

    Well, Drink Pink is just me. I had the idea and I’m running with it. It’s not an official thing – just something I’m doing on my blog to help raise awareness.
