What was the world's largest pink ribbon?



For decades people have been wearing ribbons to express their passion for a cause that they believe in. The pink ribbon, worn for breast cancer awareness and hope for the future, is no different. And although this symbol can be seen just about everywhere today, you might be interested to know that it was not pink to begin with – it was peach. Charlotte Hayley, a breast cancer survivor was the first to wear the peach ribbon and hand it out with a card stating what it was for and it was when she partnered with Evelyn Lauder of Estee Lauder that the color was changed to pink and that’s the color it is most known for today. So, just what was the world’s largest pink ribbon?

The world’s largest pink ribbon was unveiled in New York’s Time Square in October 2004. The massive pink ribbon was part of the ‘sticking up for breast cancer’ campaign and measured 136 feet by 57 feet across a single billboard, and it stood about 70 feet tall! But what’s more impressive than the mere size of it, is what the pink ribbon was constructed of. For this particular pink ribbon, 75,000 pink super sticky-notes were arranged in the shape of the ribbon and it took workers over three days to complete! That’s a lot of sticky-notes and a whole lot of hope!
