Preventing Divs from Overlapping on my site

When I re-size the browser to a small height or width, the three image divs (.main-links) over lap the .pink-block div. I am having trouble keeping the three images positioned below the div and staying there when the browser is resized. Could someone help me with this? (Within my CSS, please refer to the PINK BLOCK CODE and GIANT LINKS code) Thanks!

I'm not sure how to solve your issue, but one thing I noticed is this line:

<section class="big-links" "wrapper">

should be

<section class="big-links wrapper">

wrapper needs to be in the same set of quotes for the class attribute, space separated.

It's because you've absolute positioned the #pink-block element. Try changing the top attribute to 38% rather than 50%.
