October Pink!

Wow! I can't believe we are already into October! This is a very significant month; I have done a lot of fundraising in my time but October and Breast Cancer Awareness is very close to my heart.

So, all month long I will be offering various different ways to fund raise, from donating part or all of the sale price of particular items in my 3 shops on Etsy to the Susan G. Komen Foundation http://ww5.komen.org/ Also, giveaways of pink items with purchases and giveaways on my blog, keep coming back to see what is being offered each week.

Here is the first piece, I know it is expensive but a lot of work and love went into this piece. Check it out at my etsy shop and read the story behind the painting :)

Also, this caught my eye while browsing a Women's magazine in the Doc's office a couple of weeks ago. I was fascinated I hadn't heard about it before; so just in case you haven't either I am sharing this info. Who knew we could all do our bit for Breast Cancer research! Check it out today, it isn't as scary as it sounds :)
