rural awareness for breast cancer

We've been seeing pink silage rolls in the farms around the countryside.  


They are trying to get the message out that mammograms are free for NZ women 45-69 and  to encourage all women to take advantage of this test. 

Each pink roll is a donation to breast cancer research. Even though these pink purchases and donations were made in October, they are only now being seen because now is the time for silage.




This farmer has a great sense of humor humour! 'Get the girls out' was the catch-phrase of the tv ads.

That is absolutely amazing--I love it! "Get the girls out" is a perfect catch phrase for this kind of mission, it's humorous and yet gets the point across. Wonderful! I've never seen anything like this....
