Pink Hijab Day - October 28


About Pink Hijab Day, from the official website:

Mission:
Pink Hijab Day is intended to shatter stereotypes of Muslim women, as well as raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. All over the world, Muslims participated by wearing pink hijabs, pink ribbons, and donating to breast cancer foundations.

I want to thank everyone who participated in previous years. We hope this project will grow stronger every year. The event takes place the last Wednesday of every October. This year's event is scheduled for October 28, 2009.

In the United States, donations are being collected at www.info-komen.org/goto/pinkhijabs . To see how you can donate in your area, click the link to the left "In Your Neighborhood."

Pink Hijab Day is an independent project.

Hey, I think all of us can probably find a pink headscarf...
