‘Messenger’ in pink!

October 6, 2009 in General, News

messengerpink_01_0For the first time in The Messenger’s 121 year history its iconic red cover has been transposed to a flush of pink  because The Messenger magazine has taken the lead in supporting Action Breast Cancer during the month of October. To mark Breast Cancer Awareness month  the magazine  will  be donating 10% from all new postal subscriptions taken out in the month of October, to the charity  Action Breast Cancer. Editor Editor John Looby, S.J.,says they did not take the decision to change the colour lightly but “The Messenger receives thousands of letters every month and many of those letters leave us in no doubt about the prevalence of cancer and in particular breast cancer in Ireland. So we wanted to signal our concern and show our readiness to help.” The special pink October edition has a feature article by Carita Kerr entitled “Me and My Cancer: A Personal Journey.”
