Ok, so this is one part history, one part plea for help. Five Months ago I posted a piece about the impact breast cancer has had on my life & why on Wednesdays I wear pink.
I started my #onwednesdayswewearpink campaign as a very personal reminder to honor my family history & to raise my voice. Even if only a few people saw it on my Facebook page.
I spent a few weeks trying to figure out how to shine a light on the boobs without always talking about them. Then I realized that just like I had in the offline (real) part of my life, it needed to be part of the natural order of things.
Because I am not so fearless I can spend a whole day every week talking about breast cancer. What I am doing is spending a whole day every week promoting awareness for a cause that has always been my battle. Because these boobs are worth fighting for.
So I decided on Wednesdays I would change my profile & cover photos to different breast cancer awareness T-shirts. I reminded my “Ninja Pirate Fairies” (what I call my page followers) to join me. Then I got into a habit of “dropping off” pink t-shirts to other pages as a reminder that #OnWednesdayWeWearPink.
And ya know, something amazing happened. Slowly other pages joined me in the Pink Wednesday campaign. I had honestly never imagined other pages would be changing profile photos, posting their fun finds on my page & echoing my message. Reminding everyone to #CheckTheirHumpsForLumps, #SaveTheTaTas, and #SaveARack.
