A Colorado nonprofit organization is uniting America's pumpkin growers in the fight against breast cancer. The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation based in Rocky Ford, Colo., helps U.S. growers donate a percentage of sales of each Porcelain Doll F1 pink pumpkin grown to organizations supporting breast cancer research.
"It's a great avenue for the growers themselves to support breast cancer research" says Kevin Skaling of DP Seeds LLC., the Porcelain Doll F1 breeder.
This 501(c)(3) charity has also launched a website not only to provide grower resources but to provide the public with information about the foundation and the Porcelain Doll F1 pink pumpkin; www.PinkPumpkinPatch.org encourages customers to place a pink pumpkin on their porch this fall to show their support in ending breast cancer.
"We want to see a pink pumpkin on every porch in America," states Don Goodwin, Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation president. He adds, "These pumpkins convey a sense of solidarity against a disease that directly and indirectly affects all of us at some point of our lives."
Growers wanting to purchase Porcelain Doll F1 Pink Pumpkin seed can do so through SEEDWAY and neseed.com. For more information about the Foundation and the Porcelain Doll F1 Pink Pumpkin visit www.PinkPumpkinPatch.org.
