A couple of weeks ago, the CCD Beauty team decided that the office should partake in Wear It Pink day and try to raise some money in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Straight away we were trying to think what pink items were in our wardrobes and which pink lipsticks and nail varnishes we had. There were talks of wearing onesies and tutus to work but that idea was quickly squashed; commuting in fancy dress didn’t really appeal!
Every year, Wear It Pink raises around £2 million during Breast Cancer Awareness Month by asking people to wear something pink and donate whatever they can. They have raised a total of £27 million since their first event in 2002 and the money raised goes towards word-class research, by the brightest scientific minds, across the UK and Ireland.
This year Wear It Pink day was on Friday 23rd October and we all came into the office wearing pink in some way. Across the agency there were a variety of different pink nail varnishes and lipsticks worn. We also tried to incorporate pink into our outfits in some way.
The whole agency posed for photos and used whatever props we could find in honour of Wear It Pink day. We were glad to be able to support Breast Cancer Awareness month in some way and will be looking forward to hearing how much we raised for this worthwhile cause.
