Pink October bento

October is the month of Breast Cancer Awareness. The international health campaign aims to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research.

Bentoblog invited me to join the pink bento theme event she is hosting (please visit there and check the other wonderful supporters´ work!). Making a bento in the pink theme or using the pink ribbon is our way to participate and show our awareness too.

Other dear bento-friends are also giving their contribution! If you’re in twitter,  look for hashtags #projectpink and #thinkpink.

You can also participate, donating, joining the different events taking place this month and spreading the word about them. Let´s hope this shout out is effective, not only in October but also for the whole years to come.

In Finland, please visit Rintasyöpäyhdistys ry and the Roosa Nauha campaign page.

    Wow, I love that big ribbon bow. So sweet. I also love your theme of having to ‘put together’ your bento sandwich. This is such a great way to show that there is a ‘coming together’ of people: friends, family when illness hits. The cheese and cold cuts flowers are fab!
