I Like It On ....

I was wondering why suddenly there are suddenly statuses quoting I Like It On.... until I found this article. It seems that I was so busy with my duty as a wife and mother that I'm not aware about this important thing - Breast Cancer Awareness. My mom passed away after battling with Cervical Cancer so I have to be more aware of any type of cancer because some cancers are hereditary. I hope that by doing yearly Pap Smear can help me prevent cervical cancer. I want to watch my children grow up and successful in their life. I also want to grow old with my beloved husband.

I like it on............?

 Every October, millions of woman join together to raise awareness for breast cancer, last October woman everywhere were posting a colour as their status, Male friends kept commenting "what is this colour for?" "why do i keep seeing colours on my friends status?" This was just another breast cancer awareness campaign where woman were posting the colour of the bra they were wearing at the time. This month however you have probably seen status updates that read 'i like it on the kitchen table' or 'i like it on the sofa' and even 'i like it on my desk' these status reports are puzzling men all over, many of them thinking perhaps this is to much personal information haahaa, but their is nothing sexual about theses status updates although one could see why men would think that, it is in fact another breast cancer awareness campaign, woman receive this message in their inbox............ "So you guys remember the game last year about what color bra you were wearing at the moment? For those of you who didn't participate in the game, what happened was that females posted the colour of the bra that they were wearing at that moment in their status on Facebook. Facebook statuses were full of colors and it had males everywhere wondering why.
The purpose was to increase awareness of October Breast Cancer Awareness month. It was a tremendous success and we had men wondering for days what was with the colors and it made it to the news. This year's game has to do with your handbag/purse,we want to know where you put your handbag the moment you get home for example "I like it on the couch", "I like it on the kitchen counter", "I like it on the dresser" well u get the idea.
Just put your answer as your status with nothing more than that and cut n paste this message and forward to all your FB female friends to their inbox. The bra game made it to the news. Let's see how powerful we women really are!!! REMEMBER - DO NOT PUT YOUR ANSWER AS A REPLY TO THIS MESSAGE- PUT IT IN YOUR STATUS!!! PASS THIS TO EVERYONE YOU KNOW."

And so woman are posting where they keep their bag, and whether or not you find this bag game stupid or fun, it has done what it set out to do, as everyone is talking about it, therefore raising awareness.
