Awareness Ribbons & Memorial Urns

Last Updated on

Awareness ribbons have come to symbolize a wide array of important causes. The iconic pink ribbon, representing breast cancer awareness, is etched into the public consciousness due to the efforts of the Susan G. Komen Foundation and other related charities in launching Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Other causes took up the ribbon at around the same time, notably AIDS awareness groups which pioneered a red awareness ribbon.Awareness Ribbons Colors

Today there are hundreds if not thousands of causes which use awareness ribbons of various colors and patterns to help further their causes.
