Breast Cancer Donation

Pin It

October kind of snuck up on me and I didn't get a chance to make any breast cancer awareness beads, but these are pink, so they count. I ran a campaign to promote a portion of my ArtFire sales this past month to benefit the Susan G Komen Foundation. My husband and I also donated to Race for the Cure in memory of our son's girlfriend's mom, who lost her battle to breast cancer at a young age.

Well, I wish it could've been more, but sales were really down for me this past month. Here's a copy of my receipt though I had to delete my personal info so couldn't copy and paste it verbatim.
