Partner with your local Relay For Life and/or local hospital oncology department to participate in a Relay, sell pink Plant It Pink ... Planet Pink! tee shirts, and sell pink tulips and pink ribbons to businesses and homeowners. Proceeds from sales of Plant It Pink ... Planet Pink! events and merchandise will be equally divided by your local garden club and the American Cancer Society.
