A Colorado nonprofit corporation, Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, Rocky Ford, launched a website in preparation for its first fall harvest.
The website is for growers and retailers participating in the program, and for those simply looking for information, according to the release.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation is encouraging consumers to place pink pumpkins on their porches to show their support against breast cancer.
The foundation was created in 2012 to aid in the fight against breast cancer, according to the release.
U.S. pumpkin growers have agreed to give a percentage of proceeds from every pink pumpkin sold to breast cancer organizations. Don Goodwin, Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation president, said he wants to see the campaign across America.
“We want to see a pink pumpkin on every porch in America,” Goodwin said, in the release, “These pumpkins convey a sense of solidarity against a disease that directly and indirectly affects all of us at some point of our lives.”
