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!
