Pink Monday

WHY PINK

IS THE NEW BLUE?

Monday is the hardest day of the week for many of us. You've just finished a nice weekend and the work week is already upon you. Do you sometimes suffer from the Monday Blues? Pink Ribbon would like to change that! Our mission is to turn the saddest day of the week into a day of hope, support and awareness about breast cancer. No Monday Blues for us, but a hopeful Pink Monday! Will you join us?

A day that we will dedicate entirely to prevention, early detection of breast cancer and support for those, former breast cancer patients. Currently, 100,000 Belgian women are fighting against the disease.

One out of nine women are affected by breast cancer. This includes your colleagues. It is therefore important to support your affected colleague(s) in this difficult period. He or she will have to endure a tough journey with ups and downs, and support can change the world for them and together we can make the battle bearable. We provide the necessary tips, tricks and tools, which your employees can implement together. This way, we can fight breast cancer together. 

Why organise a Pink Monday event?

When someone is diagnosed with breast cancer, it is a heavy burden to carry. For a moment, the world stops turning and you become anxious while knowing that nothing will ever be the same again. By turning the most depressing day into a day of hope, we want to let all fellow combatants know that they are not alone, because you never fight breast cancer alone!

By turning Blue Monday into Pink Monday, you show affected colleagues you support them. Not only that, it’s also a day to inform all employees and raise awareness about the disease that affects one out of nine women in our country every year. Focusing on sufficient exercise during office hours, putting up posters about the warning signs of breast cancer and simply showing that you are willing to listen, we want to ensure that fewer women (and men) are affected by the disease.

Pink Breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. What better way than to experience this with your colleagues?

Organise a pink, healthy breakfast basket or sit down together at the meeting table for an extensive buffet. Whatever you prefer, it is a fun way to kick off your Pink Monday.


A touch of Pink

Make your Pink Monday visible by asking your colleagues to wear a pink garment or accessory. It is a simple but warm gesture of support for colleagues who are fighting breast cancer. Some examples to get you started are the Pink Ribbon ribbon, the Pink Ribbon bracelet and mouth masks. Don't forget to take a photo in your gorgeous pink outfits and share it on social media with #PinkMonday😊


Pink Coffee Break

The coffee break is a ritual that occurs in almost every company. A small break and perfect opportunity to catch up with your colleagues. Why not organise a Pink Coffee Break?

Small moments and gestures like these can have great results. You can offer support and listen to a colleague (with breast cancer) who is going through a difficult time.
