breast cancer awareness month

Need an excuse to sport pink nails this Fall? Show your support this month, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The campaign was initiated in 1992 by Estee Lauder Companies and completes 20 years this year.

All around the world famous landmarks are lit up in pink for one week, the most recent one being the Bandra Worli Sea Link in Mumbai. Others in this list include Harrods (London), Opera House (Sydney), Los Angeles International Airport (USA) and Buckingham Palace (London) to name a few. It is truly amazing to see how different companies, people and societies come together to show their support for this cause in the most creative and aesthetic way possible.

One can only understand how bad this cancer is once it hits someone dear to you. Having seen my aunt go through with it really made me want to show my support for this cause.

I went for a design that was simple and obviously one that had a pink ribbon as the main highlight. The rest was just abstract art using the colours that represent this cause to the fullest.

How are you showing your support this month?
