pink ribbon manifestation

Torches were lit in thousands in a fund raiser for the pink ribbon. You could buy one for 40 SEK out of which 35 goes to the cancer fund. Last year there were about 10,000. I'm not sure how many there were this year.

Worthy and spectacular at the same time, for a truly good cause.

Hej Berndt, it was indeed a beautiful event! I also went there and did a little study on it - my post will be probably disappointing for many... Ten thousand candles

Thanks for all the comments. The candle-ceremony was really nice. Having read Andrea's blogpost, makes you wonder one more time though, about the cause in itself. I can agree partly with her, even if my own opinion would be, that more money can never hurt. I'm sure medical companys will find something else to make up for one loss.....?
