The pink ribbon is becoming one of our newest most recognized symbols.  Breast cancer awareness campaigns are spreading through the country, and products from soups to cement trucks are taking up the message.


Cement trucks?


Nonprofits, like the ones that support Breast Cancer Awareness, are increasingly using the powerful impact of images to keep the message in front of potential donors minds.  And it appears to be working.  For a symbol that less than 10 years ago few would have associated with anything except for a little girl’s hair, breast cancer awareness nonprofits have been using branding, including packaging, to get their message out in an extremely positive way.

As more nonprofits realize the power of branding and packaging, maybe our society will use branding to bring the most important message of all.

That of compassion.
