Pink Saturday – Care enough to wear pink

Another Pink Saturday at Beverly’s How Sweet the Sound.
Have you seen the Elaine, the pink fire truck?  Elaine is part of the “Pink Heals” tour and has been touring the US to raise funds and awareness for Breast Cancer.
A group of Arizona firefighters are trading in their traditional red trucks to make a bolder statement. The group's leader said, "Our calling from God at the very simplest form is to protect our women. Why shouldn't we all be in pink as a group, as an army?"
Dave Graybill explained, "I'm a firefighter on vacation spreading love and hope in the form of a pink fire truck.”
Dave Graybill is driving the truck 10,000 miles and stopping in 32 cities in an effort to raise  Breast Cancer support and awareness. He is involving firefighters and police and trying to raise money for underinsured patients.

As usual, I am not disappointed with all of the pink goodies I get to see on Pink Saturday. With fall in the air and the days getting shorter, Pink Saturday is going to be more important than ever to bring a little sunshine into my home.

Your post this week was extra special!

Wishing you a weekend filled with good food, good company and much l♥ve.
