Shades of Pink – A Breast Cancer Awareness Month event

Welcome to my Shades of Pink event!

Every year in October – my birth month – I try to have a special event. This year, I wanted to do something different. I have received tremendous support in my writing in the past years, and I wanted to give back.

As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. All this month, I’ll be holding a fundraiser to benefit research. But I don’t just want your money. I want to give, too! Give to you, the readers, and each week I’ll give away signed paperbacks, handmade beaded book thongs and swag, with a last hurrah giveaway on October 31st with a handmade pink ribbon quilt as one of the prizes. Give to the fundraiser, too, and for that I’ll need your help.

Whichever way you decide to participate, thank you in advance!

    This is such a wonderful thing you are doing! Self exams are sooo important. I know it is scary, but it is best to know early; so think happy, positive thoughts and just exam yourself. :-)

    Several – scheduled my daughter’s synchro team to do the one day walk as an annual event – then we did the 3day weekend and the team still does it to this day. And we started that back in 2001.
    I’m doing some volunteer time here in Atlanta – I don’t really know that many people so that has always been a good way for me to meet people and see what other opportunities to volunteer are available.

  13. I hope I’m commenting on the right spot. I did a few bake sales when I was in high school for breast cancer.
