Pink Saturday and Birkenstocks

I wanted to do something for Pink Saturday to promote breast cancer awareness, and found these pink Birkenstocks on the web. Most of us know at least one person that has been affected by this cancer.

Personally, I have lost a first cousin and a friend to the disease. I've got several friends that have won the battle and are in remission! Hopefully in the near future, there will be a complete cure. From the website:

For years we know that Birkenstock works wonders for our feet. Well, it seems that now they’re willing to do the same for our breasts…
The world famous Madrid design from Birkenstock has a new sparkling pink updo and that’s because he’s helping raise money for researching a cure in the fight against breast cancer. App. $7 from each Birkenstock pair sold will hit the Breast Cancer Campaign Funds.

Thanks for stopping by on Pink Saturday! Please visit Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for other Pink Saturday posts. Thanks Beverly for hosting this!

Well, I'm thinking: duh! Here I've been seeing all this pink stuff on Saturdays for months, and I didn't realize it was for breast cancer awareness! I can't believe I didn't tie it together. So thank you for kicking me in the butt! I thought, well, it's a shabby chic thing or something. I have been fortunate in not losing anyone close to this disease. And I don't know if I have one pink thing in the whole house, but now I get the picture!

Great to learn about new things that help the cause, and look pretty and are good for your feet too!

I have a button on my blog that can be clicked on daily, and it helps someone get a free mammogram.
