Great Architect is sponsoring a Breast Cancer Awareness campaign for the entire month of October. We encourage all of our guild members, members of the SBI community, and the whole GW2 world to wear pink for the entire month of October. If you are questioned about your pink colors please respond with information about our campaign and direct them to our site and this thread where they can learn more about Breast Cancer Awareness.

Participating members who wear pink for the entire month of October will be rewarded with this unique badge.

Even if it kinda strikes me as a well-met opportunity to promote the guildwebsite in a strange way, I still support this! *thumbs up*

Oh stop being cynical. It's fun and spreads awareness.

We'll do other monthly awareness in the future.

Help save the tatas! I've had family members die from breast cancer and have several friends battling it now. help show your support, donate if you are able to. If you don't feel comfortable donating through the sites posted, contact me and I will do so for you. My volleyball coach sponsors a team of girls that run an event for this cause. Everyone should educate themselves on how to prevent breast cancer from happening to you. Even you males it still can take your lives.

This is a great opportunity for the community to help make other members and people aware of a very likely problem they will in their life experience or know someone close to them that goes through this. Everyone should be aware of high risk issues like these and I am glad we are finding ways to show our support through gaming.

Thank you,

I lost my Mother to Breast Cancer, this has always been an important month to me. I usually run a 5k to help promote the awareness. Nice to see this here :).

I think this is a cool idea, and a unique way of raising awareness within our gaming community.

I just so happen to have tamed a pink moa which I will be using the entire month.

Pink armor: *check*
Pink pet: *check*

I'm all set :thumb:

It's an awesome idea. We should be sure to promote this to the SBI forums as well. I've had family members not only get diagnosed with breast cancer, but they have been fortunate enough to say that they've beaten it. Promoting awareness, though, is a pretty important part of getting that success!

Edit: Of course, after I post this I go read the post on the SBI community forums. Which brings the next question: Why is this not on the In-Game Events forum for the official GW2 community?

No good reason. I will make sure it gets put there soon. I did share it on SBI and GW2Guru though.
