What do breast cancer awareness, domestic violence awareness, substance abuse awareness, ovarian cancer awareness, pride awareness, HIV and AIDS awareness all have in common?
They can all be celebrated with an awareness ribbon pin!
Awareness ribbon pins have been used to show support for causes since 1979 when Penney Laingen wanted to bring attention to her husband, who was being held hostage during the Iran Hostage Crisis. Since then, awareness ribbons have continued to be created to bring awareness to many different topics and movements.
What is the Purpose of an Awareness Ribbon Pin?
Awareness ribbons are meant to show public support or raise understanding of a cause. There are new awareness ribbons created daily, with some ribbons being multiple colors. The pattern and coloring are unique for each different cause related awareness ribbon.
Where Can You Wear an Awareness Ribbon Pin?
For many desiring to show public support of a particular cause they will wear their awareness ribbon pin on a bag or purse strap. They may pin the ribbon to the sun visor in their car. They may wear it as a lapel or hat pin while others may attach their awareness ribbon pin to their bulletin board at work or on their cubicle wall.
