Thinking Pink!

24 Sep, '09

I’m pretty excited about the first (of many I hope) sponsorship deal my company (Gulf Broadcast) is entering into for a very worthy cause. Gulf Broadcast has become a Platinum Sponsor of the Think Pink Bahrain, a non-profit organisation

“that was founded by Ms Julie Sprakel in 2004, and provides an extra support mechanism to the already established Bahrain Cancer Society (BCS). The money raised has been directed through the society to help Bahraini breast cancer victims.

Think Pink is dedicated to increasing awareness of breast cancer issues, especially early detection, thereby saving lives.”

Our involvement is to help Think Pink Bahrain spread the awareness of breast cancer in Bahrain via a number of videos documenting their efforts, be that the forthcoming Golf fund raising weekend, the Gala Dinner and of course creating media to show how a woman should check herself and other how-to and advice videos.

I really look forward to a long-term relationship with Think Pink, it is a very worthy cause and I applaud Jules Sprakel and others who willingly help her spread the message.

If you want to help, please view their site at ThinkPinkBahrain.com and offer your services.

    Nice one! I sponsor Think Pink over in Qatar too.

    These guys are doing a fantastic job to help promote a very important message.

      Many thanks Khalifa, like you, I find it a worthy cause to support, apart from being the right thing to do anyway.

    Eman Khalifa, after years of fighting hard, passed away in 2007. Her cancer started out as breast cancer. I will never forget her. She was an inspiration. She ran PR at Fortune Promoseven for as long she could, right up to the end of her time with us. The word that describes her for me is “grace”. Yes, Eman had grace. She’s one of the people I think of whenever things get tough. She still reminds me to stop whining and do something positive. What my parents couldn’t teach me, I finally learned from Eman.

    The Think Pink girls came to Orbit that year drumming up support. It’s good to see how hard they work for the cause. I wish everyone concerned all the best in your endeavours. If ever there was a chance for a local production company to shine, ya Blogfather, then this is it. I hope it goes smoothly and I’m sure it’ll go brilliantly. Bless you.

    For Eman,
