Oregonian, Emily Somers created and directed this fantastic breast cancer awareness fundraiser video called the Pink Glove Dance. Medline features these pink gloves so that health care providers can show their support and Medline itself donates portions of each box sold to breast cancer awareness. The video is an additional fundraiser as Medline has pledged a donation to the hospital if the video hits a million views mark.
No, they’re not professional dancers, and they haven’t recently updated their Facebook status from the altar or paraded down the aisle to Chris Brown, but these 200-plus doctors, nurses and Providence St. Vincent Center hospital staffers are viral video stars all the same. Their purpose for the platform, however, is to save lives.
The clever employees created their oh-so-cute video, “Pink Glove Dance,” to the tune of Jay Sean’s hit song, “Down,” in order to raise money and awareness to fight breast cancer.
The video, which features the staffers wearing special pink gloves that can be purchased for the cause, has gone viral on YouTube, amassing nearly 2.8 million views.
Now the sprightly bunch has attracted the attention of media outlets like FOX News. On December 8, 2009, a group of dancers will appear on the show Fox and Friends, most likely flaunting their pink gloves and dancing moves. Until then, check out the video here.
