Bluesky goes pink in support of cancer fight

08 October 2017, 12:00AM

Bluesky is on a mission to support Samoa Cancer Society’s Pinktober campaign. 

Pinktober began last week and Bluesky Country Manager, Alex Abraham, said the support to raise awareness on breast cancer is commendable. 

The town clock painted pink and many people wearing pink are good examples of the public’s support.

“We have proudly sponsored the Samoa Cancer Society since 2015 and we‘ve always done this behind the scenes,” said Mr. Abraham. 

“But it’s time for us to step up and rally public support for Samoa Cancer and the crucial work they do.”

With an exciting month of activity ahead, Bluesky will be showing their support in many ways. All Bluesky advertising and promotions will be splashed with pink and will display the Breast cancer awareness logo. 

“One of our most exciting campaigns is our Text to Win an Iphone 7 Plus. It will be $1 Tala for a text and all our prepaid and post paid capped customers are eligible to participate.”  

“The best part of this campaign is for every eligible text received, Bluesky will donate 50sene from each text to Samoa Cancer Society.”

Samoa Cancer Society’s Pinktober campaign is being supported by Bluesky; Events Marketing and Distribution (E.M.D.); and the Miss Samoa Alumni (M.S.A.). 

“There are many other organisations that are coming on board to support and we are calling on all members of the public to join us in helping this great initiative.” 

“One of the key things we want to help Samoa Cancer Society drive with is awareness of Breast Cancer and the crucial action of early detection.” 

“There’s a great TV ad that Samoa Cancer have recently launched featuring one of our Miss Samoa Alumni Manamea, which talks about the importance of early detection.” 

“As a survivor, Manamea is a prime example of the support that Samoa Cancer Society can give, to help fight this devastating disease.”

The Pinktober Campaign schedule of events gives everyone the opportunity to support. 

On Wednesday 11th October the public is invited to join the Police march at 8am beginning from the Police station and ending at the Govt Building. 

There will be a Sheraton Pink Luncheon on Monday 23rd October at 11:30am and tickets will be available at Bluesky’s Maluafou office for purchase.  

On Wednesday 25th October the Miss Samoa Alumni will be hosting an evening at Orators where Manamea and other Breast Cancer survivors will be sharing their survival stories. 

The grand finale for Pinktober will be celebrated on Saturday 28th October with an early morning Pink Colour Run followed by a Pink Rock Concert at Taumeasina for the whole family. 

“Everyone is invited to participate. The run will start in front of the Govt Building and will end at Taumeasina where food, drinks and music will be enjoyed by the whole family.” 

“Again we invite all of Samoa to support Pinktober and join Samoa Cancer Society in bringing awareness to Breast Cancer and the fight for early detection,” he said.
