At Holiday Gifts & Gift Baskets, we've added a whole new line of gifts and gift baskets that incorporate pink ribbons for Breast Cancer Awareness month. With gifts starting at just $20 and a huge variety of treats such as gourmet cookies, brownies, chocolate covered oreos, and gourmet nuts, we've got something for everyone. Part of the profits from some of these gifts will be donated to various cancer foundations in the U.S.
The pink ribbon has come to symbolize the solidarity behind the breast cancer movement and to support the thousands of women diagnosed with breast cancer each year. In 1991, the Susan G. Komen foundation first passed out pink ribbons to wear in their New York City race for the cure. A breast cancer awareness stamp featuring a pink ribbon was incorporated on a U.S. stamp in 1996. Most Breast Cancer Research Fundraisers are held during the month of October when many groups including the NFL in 2009 wear pink and buy pink items in support of the movement.
