Pink Friday for Breast Cancer Awareness

Another edition of Pink Friday to raise awareness against Breast Cancer.
If you are in the UK, you can support the fight against Breast Cancer by binning your bra. To quote the campaign site,
"In 2010 a team of nine scientists and researchers at UCL's Institute for Women's Health are devoted to carrying out novel research to improve breast cancer detection and survival. Their salaries, equipment and lab space are entirely funded by the goodwill, generosity and tireless efforts of the organisation's volunteers, patrons, donors and supporters.
The Bin Your Bra campaign not only keep textiles out of landfill, it helps small businesses in Africa and raises vital funds for their ground breaking research.
The final amount raised is based on the weight of bras collected so more bras mean more funds and every £1 raised moves us closer to our ultimate goal, a future free from breast cancer."
The website for this campaign has information on where in the UK, you can bin your bra.

For this pink manicure, I did a gradient with Barry M Matt White and Revlon Cupid. The accent nail was stamped with Konad White and MoYou plate 13 from the Princess Collection. The pink rhinestones are from MoYou as well. Its all finished with topcoat.

Wishing all my readers good health!
