So when I came across this article about designers collaborating for raise money for breast cancer awareness and research I was excited. Design and breast cancer awareness all wrapped up in one?! Very cool!
For the third year in a row SUITE New York is launching Pink Project to raise money for breast cancer awareness. This year 20 designers and architects collaborated to customize a GJ chair; originally designed in 1963 by female designer Dane Grete Jalk.
The chairs are being auctioned off at CharityBuzz.com through October 31st. Check out some of the cool designs:
Though I think this is a very cool project for a good cause I won't be bidding- the starting bids are $850! The chairs themselves are valued at $2700. Dang...
For now I'll just stick to saving my Pink Yoplait Lids
