Most colors associated with autumn fall under a single spectrum: warm oranges, vibrant yellows and deep reds. PINK however, is the color of October. For an entire 31 days, NFL players incorporate pink into uniforms, marathon runners sport the iconic pink ribbon, and brands design exclusive pink products, all in an effort to increase the awareness of breast cancer.
One non-profit organization that takes the message beyond its celebrated month is Keep A Breast (KAB). Through art events, educational programs, and fundraising efforts, Keep A Breast hits cities across the nation to spread the word about breast cancer, share methods for early prevention, and encourage young people to be aware of their breast health.
The casts of "boobies" you see above are authentic KAB plaster casts of influential females ranging from professional athletes to celebrities, that are auctioned off as a fundraiser for future breast cancer programs.
