Today we want to share three of our favorite innovations, innovators, and new thoughts. We have selected our favorite products, ideas, disruptors, and concepts that make you go, “wow, I hadn’t thought of that.”
One innovative group has created a global movement to share a simple idea that can save lives. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign that raises funds for prevention, education, treatment, research, and hope for a cure in our lifetime. Not every culture or country promotes awareness and self-exam acceptance to the same degree. Adoption of self-exam might be a necessity on path toward reduced cancer rates, but in Pakistan it’s a toxic taboo.
The first favorite is an innovative product with a local answer to a universal problem. The Pink Bra was designed to turn an everyday action for Pakistani women, slipping money inside their bras, into a breast cancer self-examination exercise. You can find more information on the #giveapinkbra movement here or watch the video.
