October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I was just thinking about how many women I have known that have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Quite a few. My mom is a survivor, as well as 2 sister-in-laws. 5 friends. The odds are pretty high that you or I or someone close to you will have it at some point.
That's why I have decided to partner with Make Mine PINK for a cure. All profits from every Make Mine PINK for a cure product sold will be donated to breast cancer research. Make Mine Pink for a cure products can be purchased here:
Here's another great charity that I support. A member of my church is the founder of a non-profit foundation that I thought might be of interest during Pink October. The foundation is Cleaning For A Reason. Its sole purpose is to provide professional house cleaning free of charge to any woman while she is undergoing cancer treatment. Cleaning For A Reason donates this cleaning service to women with all types of cancer, but breast cancer is the most prevalent within the women served. Started only a year and a half ago, there are now 50 residential cleaning services in more than 20 states that have committed to providing nearly 2,400 benevolence cleanings this year (2007).
They gladly accept donations to help pay for supplies and services provided to the women. If you are interested in reading more about it, her website is http://www.cleaningforareason.org/.
Please consider supporting one or both of these charities. Together, we can make a difference!
