Pink Glove Dance

Recently, the doctors, nurses and staff of the Providence St. Vincent Medical Centre in Portland, Oregon got together and, in true Bollywood style, made this fabulous Pink Glove Dance video to promote breast cancer awareness. The manufacturer of those *groovy* pink gloves, Medline, donates a portion of its annual sales to the U.S. National Breast Cancer Foundation, which provides education and free mammograms for those in need.

I just love this video and its light-hearted sense of fun! And I love seeing REAL PEOPLE in a music video for a change! And it's for a good cause. How great is that?

Wow. That's. A. Lot. Of. Pink. Cool stuff and great cause. On another note, hubby's dad's tests came back for his mesothelioma. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the worst - he's a 1, and totally treatable. Phew! Next!

That was fun! I, too, esp liked the Janitor - & all the other 'behind the scenes folk' featured - wonder who choreographed it? well done!
I'm also 'close to' Portland, & have visited Providence

This is one of the best entertaining videos I've ever seen. The music, choreography, and actual employees doing it all made it so fun to watch. And a bonus for breast cancer awareness.
