Last October the White House Turned “Pink” in recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness month. This year, we – those in the fight against Childhood (STUPID) cancer, would like to see the White House go GOLD. However, we can not just go and shine our lights on the White House.
An official online petition has been set up to request the government to consider this. They won’t even consider it until they have 25,000 “signatures”. (for future petitions it is going to be 100,000!) They DO give responses once the required number of signatures has been obtained. Someone even created a silly one to have a real “Death Star” (ala Star Wars) and THEY received a response! (thankfully in this case, the government decided wisely and will not be using public funds for such an endeavor)
Recently on Facebook some kids wanted to get a puppy – and they were able to get 1 million “likes” for a dog!! Aren’t the children fighting STUPID cancer worth at least that, if not more? We aren’t even looking for that many right now, although more would be wonderful!!
Please consider signing this petition – then sharing it on Facebook, Twitter, e-mail, etc! We only have a few more days to get the required number of signatures!
Here is a blog from another mom. It is NOT “G” rated, but it speaks to the truth of the devastation of childhood cancer
