6th Annual Power of Pink Challenge

Today kicks off my 6th Annual Power of Pink Challenge. Back in 2008, I wanted to find a way to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I came up with the Power of Pink Challenge to as a way to encourage fellow bloggers, bakers, and readers to think about Breast Cancer Awareness by making something PINK in their kitchen.

 

Power of Pink

As you all know, breast cancer is a disease that has touched my life in more ways that I would like to admit. I have made it a personal goal of mine to try to make a difference on this front.

I have been saving pink recipes as I see them come up throughout the year. To check out some inspiration here are the Power of Pink Favorites on Foodgawker or my Power of Pink Posts.

Here are the rules for the challenge:

  • Make something that is PINK โ€“ use any ingredients you want
  • Post a new post during the month of October on your blog (if you don’t have a blog, you can still participate, see below)
  • Post your pink food by Midnight EST on October 31
  • Include the logo and link back to this post in your post (please upload to your own server)
  • Email me at Jen[at]beantownbaker[dot]com โ€“ include:
  1. Your name
  2. Name of your blog
  3. Link to your post
  4. Picture (or permission to pull one out of your post)

If you donโ€™t have a blog and would like to participate, just send me your information to be entered.

As always, Iโ€™m offering a giveaway along with the challenge to one lucky participant. I will be choosing one of the participants at random and making a $100 donation to a charity of their choice. It can be breast cancer related or not.

Feel free to follow along on Twitter or Instagram by using #powerofpinkchallenge too!

    Fabulous roundup–and so glad I could be part of it! Everything looks amazingly scrumptious and I can’t wait to try some of these recipes! (Maybe I missed something, but didn’t the event say make “anything” pink? Or did it have to be baked goods? I’m guessing there must be SOME other pink foods out there. . . ?!!). Well, more dessert for me!

    Thanks for hosting this! ๐Ÿ™‚

    The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM) program is dedicated to increasing awareness about the importance of the early detection of breast cancer through a nationwide campaign. A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast. Mammograms are the best method to detect breast cancer early when it is easier to treat and before it is big enough to feel or cause symptoms. Having regular mammograms can lower the risk of dying from breast cancer.
