The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation launched an overall campaign, “Pink Pumpkins on Your Porch – Let’s Unite Against Breast Cancer” earlier this year. This fall, the Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation is urging consumers to place pink pumpkins on their porches to show their support in putting an end to the disease that takes away so many loved ones year after year.
