It has certainly been a busy month for PINK. And not just here in Canada, other countries like the US and Australia also showed support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month with PINK mushrooms.
So in case you missed it, here is what happened world-wide during Breast Cancer Awareness Month...
- We kicked off the start of Mushrooms Go PINK with the launch of our new website, some delicious recipes by Eat. Live. Travel. Write, Foodess, & Gratinee, and a T-Fal Dream Kitchen Giveaway.
- We toured! Hitting up cities all across Ontario and cooking up a storm on daytime TV. To see the support from TV stations & News outlets was incredible!
- We doubled our "Likes" on Facebook! To date 1,886 people have "Liked" Mushrooms Go PINK on Facebook, meaning an additional donation will be made from Mushrooms Canada.
- PINK Mushrooms were featured all across Canada. Even The Toronto Sun and Chatelaine took notice of our lovely PINK packaging!
