Pink Week!

YESSSS! Finally, a week designated to celebrate my favorite color!

Pink week was created by Gioia Fonda in 1993, while attending the California College of Arts and Crafts. Upon declaring she was going to wear pink clothes all week and have a "pink week", her good friend Eric Wood (now husband and Official Pink Week Chief Consultant), printed a few posters advertising the event on campus. What began as a personal expression quickly became a group piece as other people asked if they could participate too. In an effort to help people participate, Gioia gave small bits of pink felt away. These little felt pieces became printed felt squares the next year and then printed paper tags each year after that. Now pink week is celebrated across the nation and overseas.

Think Pink!
