October means Breast Cancer awareness so pull out of your pink things to show you are supporting this good cause! Many activities are underway in Bahrain this month some of which include a think pink golf day, various fitness events, gala dinners, a Harley Davidson think pink motorbike ride and an International costume parade.
I thought about what I could do to help raise awareness with the use of my blog. Even if I can send out a message to just one reader it is making a difference. So, to play my part in this campaign (and considering the subject of my blog) I chose to find as many local home interior items as I could that were – yes you guessed it…
I was honestly surprised and pleased to hear that a small country like Bahrain is getting so involved and heightening awareness. Bahrain seems quite liberal about international awareness yet, as it keeps its Islamic faith strong, not everything is openly discussed – especially when the topic involves the female anatomy. I believe this to be worrying as awareness is key to saving lives, no matter where in the world you live.
