Pins and awareness ribbons
Pins are used in a variety of ways and to show all different types of support. This month is breast cancer awareness month and a lot of people are wearing cancer awareness ribbons to show their support. I think that everyone who believes in something strongly and supports it is a wonderful person. Although there are a ton of different organizations that people like to donate to, not everyone can afford that. The nice thing about pins and awareness ribbons is that you show support even though you don't have a lot of money to give. It shows what you are passionate about and I think that is wonderful. Everyone has a passion in life for one reason or another, and to show everyone what you take pride in is something be proud of. There are a lot of people out there who have lost a loved one due to an illness and when they see someone proudly displaying a support ribbon, it lets them know that you care. How wonderful is that? If you can bring a smile to someone's face and make them happy for that moment, that is a wonderful feeling.
