Of all the fundraising bakes that I have done this year, my favourite is the Pink Ribbon Day. The answer is quite obvious! It’s my favourite colour and I can easily whip something pink out from my pantry. 🙂
I found a pink ribbon cookie cutter from Wheel & Barrow a few weeks ago and knew it was perfect for the occasion. I made pink ribbon fondant cookies that symbolises the theme of the fundraising.
The Pink Fairies a work went around at work with the goodies trolley and the support was overwhelming. In total they raised $1202 towards supporting women affected by breast and gynaecological cancer. Great work everyone!
What is Pink Ribbon Day?
According to http://www.pinkribbonday.com.au/faqs#1:
“Cancer Council’s Pink Ribbon Day helps raises funds in support of the many thousands of women affected by breast and gynaecological cancers. Cancer Council aims to minimise the threat of women’s cancers through successful prevention, best treatment, support and world-class cancer research.
Monday, 28th October 2013 is Pink Ribbon Day – a day when all Australians can come together to show their support for the many thousands of women battling breast and gynaecological cancers.
In Australia, it is estimated that every day, around 50 women are diagnosed with breast or a gynaecological cancer.”
