Thursdays in Pink

Though October is coming to a close, it's not too late to support the "Go Pink" project that was started by Middletown's EG Salon.  Throughout the month, the salon and their partners have been offering a pink streak or extension in exchange for a $20 donation to fight breast cancer.

There are great photographs of those who've taken the plunge at the Go Pink Project website and the salon's facebook page.

This year, the project added tshirts as an option for those who might not have the nerve (or have enough hair) to sport a pink streak.  At Kidcity Children's Museum, our staff has been wearing the tshirts every Thursday, as a way to support the effort.  

Go Pink was started a few years ago by EG Salon as a fundraiser for Middlesex Hospital's Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center.   As the popularity of the fundraiser has grown, EG invited several other salons to participate;  Citihair Design, Salonathaniel, Main Street Switch and A Style Above now also offer pink streaks/extensions and tshirts for the Go Pink project.

Last year, the project donated about $13,000 to the center at Middlesex Hospital!  What a great demonstration of how a business can make a difference.  Go Pink!
