Pretty Bald in Pink is a wonderful way to creatively express how much you care about the battle for a cure to breast cancer. Breast cancer has taken away so many of the women we love, women who were still needed when they passed away.
PRETTY BALD IN PINK Photo Campaign
October 5th – November 15th 2012
According to the American Cancer Society (ACS), a woman in the United States is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes, and every year approximately 50,000 die from this disease.
We are back!
PRETTY BALD IN PINK Photo Campaign is a charity project aimed to promote knowledge and support for cancer victims, families and everyone affected by this disease. Like last year, the idea is not to raise money, but to raise conscience and awareness about a subject that concern us all, to some more direct than to others.
Images will be posted on the PBIP blog, flickr and other media.
HOW TO PARTICIPATE
Each participant of the PBIP Photo Campaign will take a picture of themselves in a black, white or pink background completely BALD and add the PBIP Logo, your name, your title or SL Business and either 1 sentence or 3 words that you think embody the idea of the PBIP Campaign.
MAKE ALL IMAGES 1024×1024 or 1024×512 in size and add to the FLICKR group.
if you want send images to email@example.com before November 15th. The best images recieved will be published in the Pretty Bald in Pink blog and the best works will be picked up by some SL bloggers and posted.
Make sure you add your images to the flickr group. If they are not on the group, they WILL NOT be posted on the blog.
My dear friend, Alexandar Vargas aka Jordan, is a proud survivor of cancer in real life. And we have reason to hope that some day there will be a cure for the cancers that kill so that even more will be able to stand and say they survived. I am grateful that Jordan is still here. More grateful than I can ever put into words. I can still say to him things I cannot say to my grandmother, things he cannot say to his mother…because they were gone too soon.
We are thoughtful this month, and remembering. We are hopeful and optimistic that a cure will come. Pretty Bald in Pink…please share and help raise awareness amongst our Second Life community…because we are real people living in a virtual world.
