BOTOTOY goes pink in Manila for the breast cancer awareness month!
The event "BOTOTOY Loves Boobies" is part of Ministry of Mushrooms' Mushrooms Go Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.
"October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and it is especially important for us to be aware about breast cancer and it's prevention as it is today's leading killer of women ages 35 to 54. It is also one of the leading causes of cancer deaths for men in the Philippines. Early detection, a healthy diet, and the reduction of stress and negative energies have saved and will continue to save many lives.
Mushrooms have long been regarded as one of nature's super-foods. Today mushrooms are the main focus of many ongoing scientific studies as there is strong evidence that some properties may ultimately lead to breast cancer prevention and elimination. The mushroom growers of Canada and Australia have both turned pink to support breast cancer prevention and awareness. See the links: Mushrooms Go Pink Canada | Mushrooms Go Pink Australia
Many well-lauded restaurants around Metro Manila are creating and serving special mushroom-based dishes for the benefit of ICanServe Foundation on October. Apart from food as a platform to raise awareness, we believe that art is another platform we can employ. We are collaborating with JAGNUS DESIGN STUDIO, DETALLE FURNITURE & SECRET FRESH to have a BOTOTOY exhibit called "BOTOTOY LOVES BOOBIES". We Invited some of the country’s most talented artists from different fields to design a BOTOTOY to be (auction/sold) for the charity." - MARCO LOBREGAT
