Breast Cancer Awareness Month

The Irish Cancer Society is calling on men and women all over Ireland to come together this October to fight breast cancer by taking part in their new Paint it Pink campaign.

Paint it Pink is a fun way for people to raise money for the Society’s work in breast cancer funding vital research, advocacy and services to those affected by breast cancer.

The campaign is all about: doing something big or small to paint it pink on October 3rd by hosting a pink event or doing something pink, sharing pictures of your activity on social media using the hashtag #PINKPICS, and texting the word Pink 50300 to donate €4 to the Society.*

You can wear a pink tie, bake a pink cake, host a pink party, paint your nails pink, change your profile picture pink or even paint your house pink! Take a picture of your efforts, share it with your friends using #PINKPICS and don’t forget to donate by texting Pink to 50300 to give €4 to the Irish Cancer Society.
