Value of raising awareness



Elsewhere, I'm having a discussion about the value of doing things such as wearing pink or such like for Breast Cancer Awareness week, wearing various ribbons, etc...

Some would say it's a waste of time.

I'm rather firmly of the belief that if it prompts just one person to action, it's more than worth it...

Valuable? Waste of time...?

I think it is so overused now that it is a waste of time.

When just a few campaigns were identified by wrist bands / ribbons then it worked and raised awareness.

Now people are indifferent as there are about 6,000,000 different ones.

See, although I agree about it being overused, I'm still of the opinion that if it gets just one woman to go home and find out how to do a breast exam, it's worth it. :}
