When does Pink Monday take place?
Pink Monday takes place on 15 January 2024, the third Monday of the month of January.
Why do you want to raise awareness of breast cancer on a Monday?
Monday means the start of a new work week. After a fun and relaxing weekend, you sometimes feel sad. Do you recognize this feeling? It is also known as the Monday Blues. Pink Ribbon wants to counteract these depressing feelings and make this a day full of learning and hope.
What does Blue Monday mean?
Sixteen years ago, British psychologist Cliff Arnal coined the term 'Blue Monday' to refer to a day that he said is the most depressing day of the year. It is a Monday when the majority of the population feels gloomy and sad because it is getting dark early, the holidays are behind us and new holidays are not yet in sight.
Pink Ribbon wants to change this. Our mission is to turn the most depressing day of the year into a day of hope, support and awareness of breast cancer. This is how we turn Blue Monday into Pink Monday!
