The first pink ribbon on the internet. The history of virtual pink ribbons as an addition to the history of the pink ribbon, the symbol for breast cancer awareness.

a_web_1st_csutton.gif, a web first (1st) design by Carol Sutton© copyrighted"When I first went in search of a pink ribbon in 1996 to put up on my site there were no copyright free ones available on the web, so I designed my own and a page to go with it and that was the start of the pink ribbon site."

"Then, I thought maybe out there are other women and men needing a pink ribbon for their own site."Carol.Sutton

This quote is from Carol Sutton.

Carol Sutton who is breast cancer survivor, launched this

For over 16 years a pink ribbon is the international symbol of breast cancer awareness.
Wear a pink ribbon, so that people will ask you what it's all about. Do your self exams. Early detection is the best chance for a long life. If you notice anything strange see your doctor, don't wait. Pinkribbons spread awareness and are used to raise money to fund research that will lead to a cure.

This is shareware and not copyrighted."It is free because the power of movements begin with symbols and ideas that spread unimpeded."- Carol Sutton

Gem_Yellow.gifMy mandate is to give away free, copyright free pink ribbon symbols, graphic, icons, images, pinkribbon visual material and the like for the use and promotion of raising awareness of breast cancer. Toward that end many people worldwide have donated their designs and services to help in the cause. To date many people worldwide have used my free ribbons to make products that produce funds for breast cancer research and help the cause of creating more awareness of the pink ribbon symbol.

The pink ribbon considered world wide to be an international symbol for breast cancer. The pink ribbon is ubiquitous, or seeming to exist everywhere at once, and be omnipresent. No one company or organization or foundation owns the rights to this worldwide symbol. However, individual pink ribbon designers can hold all rights reserved on their copyright, for example Avon has its own, as does Estee Lauder.

Make your own design and add text. Then make a page offering it to the world wide web or internet.

what.gif  I am often asked the question; Is there one approved ribbon design? The answer is -NO.
Let's begin to see some pink ribbons up on the www in support of a Breast Cancer Cure.

weren't you saying that you always liked that glass of red wine with dinner?

A glass of red wine is good for your health.

The natural antioxidants in food can protect you from cardiac diseases and cancer

   While Modern Medicine seems good on the attack; which is surgery, radiation and chemotherapy; alternative medicine seems better on the build up of the body, through diet , vitamins, food supplements, and exercise. This dual approach seems the best until a cure is found.

Carol's Philosophy -

This page is not about raising money. It is about raising awareness.
I think the most powerful ideas spread because they are free currency.
My idea is to spread the free currency of pink ribbons for breast cancer awareness. There are many people already doing an excellent job of raising funds for research and some of those are listed on this site's link page. I do believe that research is vital. Instead of fund raising, my energy in this site aims to address awareness, provide a jump point to other sites, offer some new information and news on women's health, and give away free pink ribbon icons. Carol Sutton

Breast cancer touches the lives of both women and men. Men who have lost their wives and sweethearts, sons who have lost their moms.

Women who have lost their sisters, and even Moms who have lost their daughters. If a little pink ribbon could save a life wouldn't it be great.

  Timeframe of Ribbon Symbols
History of pink ribbons / The Origin of Pink Ribbons


 The first ribbon dating from the Vietnam war, but also honoring those POW/MIA's of previous wars and the Gulf War, was a ;

The
yellow ribbon was followed by the introduction of the pink ribbon before 1992 for breast cancer ; The pink ribbon may have been around unofficially before its introduction into the marketplace by the 'Estee Lauder Company'. I don't know about this for certain. [In 1992 "when in 1992, Evelyn Lauder and Alexandra Penney started what would become the universally recognized symbol of breast cancer awareness.2002 is the 'official 10th Anniversary of the Pink Ribbon by Estee Lauder'. Avon followed in 1993, with its Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. ]
what.gif Is there a 'classic pink ribbon'?
 The answer is 'yes'; 
the 'classic pink ribbon'
is the simple design with a single loop at the top.
 
The pink ribbon was then followed by the AIDS/HIV/SID'sred ribbon ;
 
Then the AIDS/HIV/SID'sred ribbon was followed by the blue ribbon as a symbol for the preservation of basic civil rights in the electronic world by the EFF and other civil liberties groups showing support of free speech that was threatened in the 1996 Telecom Bill passed by the U.S. congress.
 
Other RIBBONS --And now many ribbons for other causes and colors can be seen at this site- Meg's Place. The basic look and shape of the ribbon with on loop at the top, has remained consistent. Symbols provide the basic beginning structures for change in attitude and are keys to opening doors of awareness. [http://www.megsplace.com/Causes/ribbons.html]

which has been up on the web since April of 1996, or over seven years. My mandate is to give away free, copyright free pink ribbon symbols, graphic, icons, images, and the like for the use and promotion of raising awareness of breast cancer. Toward that end many people worldwide have donated their designs and services to help in the cause. To date many people worldwide have used my free ribbons to make products that produce funds for breast cancer research and help the cause of creating more awareness of the pink ribbon symbol.
 
The pink ribbon considered world wide to be an international symbol for breast cancer. The pink ribbon is ubiquitous, or seeming to exist everywhere at once, and be omnipresent. No one company or organization or foundation owns the rights to this worldwide symbol. However, individual pink ribbon designers can hold all rights reserved on their copyright, for example Avon has its own, as does Estee Lauder. But only on your design.
 
Each design is its own copyright. You have copyright plus 'All Right Reserved' on your own pink ribbon.
 
No one owns the red ribbon design for SIDS/ AIDS, except their own unique design.
.
No one owns the pink ribbons for breast cancer, except their own unique design.
 
The myriad of different organizations for breast cancer worldwide all have varied symbols; but most organizations use the symbol of the pink ribbon in one form or in another. My site alone now has up over 30 different ribbon designs. All free of copyright. Many designed by different designers and are visually different and unique. Many pink ribbons images are used on different products. There should be no confusion in the market place over the use of these products for breast cancer awareness; since each product stems from a different, visually different, and unique design and since no one organization owns the rights to the symbol of the pinkribbon or pinkribbons.
 
As I understand it, no one organization in the globe holds all the rights to using the pink ribbon as their symbol for their organization or cause. No organization should prohibit the use of pink ribbons or pinkribbons by others who seek to promote breast cancer awareness. Efforts to inhibit the use of pinkribbons or pink ribbons, hurts the cause of awareness of breast cancer and keeps the world one step away from finding a cure. Efforts to prevent the sale of products with pinkribbons or pink ribbons hurt the collection of funds that could help in breast cancer prevention, research and cure. Pink ribbons stand for and mean the same thing everywhere. There are just different designs to meet the same goal which is to promote Awareness of Breast Cancer and raise money for a cure.
 
There is not one approved design for Canada and another approved design for the U.S.A; or New Zealand; or Australia; or Mexico or for that matter any other country around the world.
