3rd Annual The Power of Pink Challenge

It’s back! The Power of Pink Challenge! I started this challenge two years ago as a way to promote Breast Cancer Awareness. It seems that everyone knows someone who has been affected by breast cancer. In honor of October being National Breast Cancer Awareness month, I present this challenge to you:

make something PINK

It can be anything. As long as it’s pink.

Also, come check out my blog today. I’ve decided to GO PINK all month long. I’ve got a new header and new side bar featuring some of my favorite pink recipes.

While you’re thinking pink, think of the people in your life who have been affected by this disease. Do your monthly self-exam or get your mammogram. I would love to have a time when things like the Avon Walk don’t have to exist any more. Did you guys know that Julia Child is a breast cancer survivor? I just read that in my October issue of Bon Appetit.

Here are the rules:
1. Make something, anything, that comes out pink – use any ingredients you want (you can double this up for another Breast Cancer blogging event if you’d like, but it does need to be a new post)
2. Post your pink food by Midnight EST on October 31
3. Include the logo and link back to this post in your post
4. Email me at Jen[at]beantownbaker[dot]com – include:
- Your name and location (city/state/country)
- Name of your blog
- Link to your post
- Picture (or permission to pull one out of your post)

If you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, just send me your information as well as the recipe used and I will post it here for you.

As an added bonus, I will be providing one lucky participant with some fun pink kitchen gear. I will choose a participant at random (using Random.org) to win this prize package: The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book Celebrating the Promise AND Breast Cancer Awareness baking set (sorry international readers, prize is only valid for US shipping addresses).

    I’m confused by this bullet point:
    “Include the logo and link back to this post in your post”
    Does that mean our blog should link back to the post on your blog?

    Nancy – when you post your entry in your blog, just include the logo with the pink ribbon and also include a link back to this post. This will help spread the word about the challenge. Let me know if you have other questions.

    Hi Jen! Just in case you haven’t seen yet, I had baked some cookies for another cause but realized they’re pink too :) I already entered your contest with the pink M&M cookies, but feel free to stop by and take a look at my pink rose sugar cookies :)
