Excerpt: “This October, pink is the new orange – at least in pumpkins.
The Pink Pumpkin Patch Foundation, a nonprofit organization that funds breast cancer research, is working with major retailers this month, including Kroger, Walmart and Home Depot, to raise money for breast cancer research through the sale of special pink-skinned pumpkins.
