Unless you live in a hut on a mountaintop with no satellite access, you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and the world has turned pink. Runs and fundraisers abound, and the Komen Foundation logo is everywhere. In connection with Raven Rocks Gallery here on the island, we decided on a slightly different approach. I made up a bunch of these little bracelets, complete with a pink ribbon bead and magnetic clasp (no cheesy stretch elastic for me!), and we are selling them at the gallery for $15.00.
All the money we raise from this little endeavor will go to a local organization – Friends for Friends Medical Assistance Fund. These good folks help low income, uninsured women pay for their mammograms, in addition to a wide range of other assistance.
Until I run out of the pink ribbon beads, I am offering these bracelets here as well. Just send me $17 via PayPal (that extra $2 will cover PayPal fees and shipping costs) using my email address: email@example.com In the body of the message, include your wrist measurement. Wrap a measuring tape around your wrist – snug, but not tight. The addition of the clasp will provide the ease for comfortable wear.
If we manage to sell all 50 bracelets, we’ll be able to send a nice $750 check to the fund. Not bad for a little place like Whidbey Island!
Be well, my little chickadees!
