Pink October '08 (#10)

Although this pink ribbon license plate has been available in Massachusetts since 2006 I have never ever seen a single one on the road.



Guess that's not surprising given that the number of Red Sox fans in the state far exceeds the number of cars of the road.



The fine print: The extra fee for the breast cancer plate is $40 a year. All proceeds ($28 the first year, then $40 per year thereafter) go to the Diane Connolly-Zaniboni Breast Cancer Research Fund at Tufts Medical Center. The Sox plate carries the same fee; proceeds go to the Jimmy Fund at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.


If your state is linked below then it has a pink ribbon plate, too. (If I missed some, tell me.) But probably not a Sox plate. Only in Massachusetts are we so lucky to have those.
