Real men do wear pink, and automakers do care about breast cancer awareness.
Today, Ford Motor Co. celebrates 16 years of fighting breast cancer, and throughout the month of October, their headquarters in Dearborn, Mich., will be lit up in pink.
In addition to being a National Series Sponsor of the Susan G. Koman Race for the Cure, Ford maintains a Warriors in Pink website that shares breast cancer news and research updates, sells apparel and accessories that raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure and gives updates on local Races for the Cure.
This year, Ford is asking you to think pink by liking their Warriors in Pink Facebook page. For every "like" they get, they'll donate $1 to Komen up to $100,000. On day 1 of October, they're at $3,420 ... Come on! We can do better than that.
Drive, She Said's Note: You will notice that my blog sports a pink ribbon. I want to make sure you know this isn't just an October thing. Drive, She Said sports the pink ribbon year round to honor my friend Sharon Rose Miller who passed away with breast cancer in 2004. She always loved to hear about my automotive exploits and whatever my car du jour might be. She is still missed.
