Yes, today is the big 3-4 for me, and what better way to celebrate than with a gorgeous pink cupcake and a reminder that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month?
Carolina of Semplicmente Pepe Rosa and Chiara of Ma che davvero? have organized Italian bloggers to post about the Nastro Rosa (Pink Ribbon) campaign today in a concerted effort to raise breast cancer awareness in the Italian blogsophere. I am honored to take part, and I thank Rosa of Bell’Avventura for letting me know of this opportunity. You can see the full list of participating bloggers at Mamma Felice.
My fellow Eye on Italy podcast hosts and I recently talked about some things Italy is doing to recognize breast cancer awareness month, including turning the Frecciarosa trains pink and offering deals for women passengers; you can also read more about the Promo Rosa and thinking pink at Moscerina.
