Think Pink with Zeta Tau Alpha

I hope y'all were able to write a post for Project Pink @ The Artsy Girl Connection.

As a member if Zeta Tau Alpha, I am so proud of my sorority's efforts in breast cancer awareness, education, and fund-raising.  Our national philanthropy is the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.  ZTA began an association with Susan G. Komen for the Cure® in 1992 when it became the first national sponsor of the Race for the Cure’s National Series Breast Cancer Survivor Recognition Program. Since that year, ZTA has continually served as a national sponsor of the Survivor Recognition Program.

Also, throughout the month of October, ZTAs partnered with the National Football League to distribute pink awareness ribbons at 26 stadiums, with Yoplait® Yogurt to Save Lids to Save Lives®.

You have probably noticed NFL players wearing pink somewhere on their uniforms during October. Last weekend, my favorite team, the New Orleans Saints, Partnered with ZTA to distribute information cards and pins at the game against the Colts.  You can read about it here.

I have been wearing my Zeta Tau Alpha pink ribbon for most of the month.  It made me so happy to see many wearing our pink ribbons at the University of Alabama's homecoming game. Breast cancer affects so many women and families.  I hope to one day witness a cure for breast cancer and an end to suffering and grief caused by this disease.

Until next time...

Blessings!

  2. It is everywhere. We just did pink out downtown Bardstown for the month of October. It's a good thing to sponsor. I hope I am around to see the "cure" too!
