ALL THE LADIES IN THE GALAXY: GET READY TO GET YOUR GEAR ON FOR A PINK CAUSE!

Yes, you read it correctly, calling out to all the NB/NG females to troop, and all the willing male members to participate as valuable supports to the galactic ladies on our mission.

It's
EC: 79289 (NG)
and
Deputy EC: SL-9826 (NB/NG),

asking you to sign up for a very special mission that is completely new territory for us. It's a chance to bring out the ladies, for the sake of the ladies!

We're talking about
ROOSA NAUHA (= PINK RIBBON) TROOP
on Saturday the 26th of October 2013 (26.10.)
Trooping time: 11-15 (4hrs, please be there at 10 for the preparations)
at Kauppakeskus Itis (a large shopping mall, formerly known as Itäkeskus)
HELSINKI
FINLAND

All this comes about from our new collaboration project with Syöpäsäätiö. It is a Finnish Cancer Fund organization that directs its money to battling cancer on many levels: information, research, therapy, etc. , and it has sister organizations in all the other Nordic countries and of course around the world as well. Roosa Nauha is their annual well-known October campaign, to aid in the battle against breast cancer, which is predominantly striking the women (of our galaxy). Hence, on the wishes of Roosa Nauha staff (they absolutely fell in love with the idea that in this case it could actually be the women of the organisation that troop in costumes, representing the ladies fighting the battle against breat cancer), and the additional blessing from LFL, we are conducting the troop in this very special way: ladies in costumes and men as supports. All for the sake of the added publicity factor and the hopes of getting the donations flowing in. This also means making trooping history and getting our feisty Nordic gang in the international media for sure!

Roosa Nauha troop is very likely to mark the beginning of a beautiful annual October collaboration, now piloted in Finland, but all the time on the background we have had a thought that this is a joint Nordic thing to be shared, a collaboration that could easily be put into effect in Sweden / Norway / Denmark too, in a similar way. The contacts between Syöpäsäätiö and its Nordic sister organizations would aid in repeating a tested and well-proven format of collaboration. So now it's time to get on the new trooping frontier for the first time, and who knows what good will follow?

The thought is to continue the Roosa Nauha collaboration year by year every October, always adding up a little something to make it stand out again, and there are plenty of possibilities for doing that. This year, the game plan for us is to have this one Saturday troop, where trooping ladies will have the whole large shopping mall area at their disposal for freely walking around to meet the crowds, a pink ribbon pinned on to each costume (and to supporters' t-shirts as well, of course), fundraising money boxes at hand. Also, in addition to the troop, we will open up a fundraising website organized by Roosa Nauha staff, open for two months (October + November) to attract donations to a bank account, bearing the names of our organizations (NG and NB), sporting our promotional photo(s), and our slogan for the campaign. A new collaboration means a new exciting chance of boosting the fundraising money earned by NG and NB.

Additional Info:

-When you sign up, please indicate which costume you will be trooping in.

-For those of you, who live outside Finland and wish to participate in this troop, trooping or supporting, we want to make everything as easy and welcoming for you as possible. So, we are prepared to provide you a place to stay at our homes, all the needed transportations (harbor/airport/accommodation/event/afterparty) and food.
Let us know asap, if you are from outside our borders and willing to join in on the experience!

-An afterparty is in the plans to conclude our fundraising Saturday, somewhere in a nearby location after the troop, more details about that later on in this thread.

So sorry that I won't be able to make this troop. I was so excited when Elina told me about it and was like YES THAT I wanna be a part of! Unfortunately, that is exactly a weekend (yes it's the Halloween weekend unfortunately) that already have plans that I can't change. =( Super bummed out about that.
