7th Annual Power of Pink Challenge

Like most things this year, I’m a little late announcing my 7th Annual Power of Pink Challenge, but that’s what I’m here for today. 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.

As I have in the past few years, I will be making a $100 donation to the charity of one winner’s choosing. I have included more options for entering this year since I am announcing the challenge so late in the month.

As always, you can enter by making something PINK and posting about it on your own blog during the month of October (be sure to post the logo and link back to this post). This year, anyone who makes something pink, you’ll get two entries for the prize.

You will get one entry if you find an old post on your blog that’s pink food, update the post with a link to this page, and send me the info listed below.

You can also get one entry for every social media share on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter that shares this post. Please tag me in your posts as well and use #PowerofPink.

Thanks in advance for everyone participating in the Power of Pink Challenge. I look forward to seeing all the entries come in over the next couple of weeks!

For each entry, send the following information to jen@beantownbaker.com

  • Your name
  • Name of your blog
  • Link to your post or social media share
  • Picture (or permission to pull one out of your post), if applicable
  • If you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, just send me your information to be entered.

    Your blog has a huge influence on my hunger, I suddenly want some cookies! Do they have special bags of M&M’s with the pink ones? Very cute cookies!

    Thanks Clara! These cookies are SO GOOD. I could make another batch today… maybe I will…

    Sorry Steph. Yes, there are special bags of pink M&Ms. Most grocery stores and CVS-type places have them.
