Think Pink: Cards for a Cause

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and right now nobody is more aware than my friend Tiffany.

Recently Tiffany found out that she has Breast Cancer, which came as a great shock to all of us because she’s only 33 years old. Her story could very easily be your story or mine, and there is no time like the present to remind everyone you know and love to check their breasts. You can read more about Tiffany’s journey and her fantastic outlook on life over on her blog:Β  http://tiffanyannemartin.wordpress.com

I have been trying to come up with meaningful ways to help out and spread the word, that Breast Cancer can affect any woman, of any age, at any time. I have decided to sell some handmade “Awareness” cards, I will let you know soon where they will be available to purchase.

Here’s an example…

The cards will be very similar to this one, featuring a Pink awareness ribbon paired with a variety of words of encouragement. Special orders can be made for other coloured ribbons, and a portion of all proceeds will be going to a local breast cancer charity (which is yet to be named).

I know the profit from these cards won’t be huge, but it is one small way that I can help.

What can you do you shed some light on Breast Cancer Awareness this month? Talking about it is the first step.

Here is a picture of Tiffany and I at one of our favourite establishments, The Ship Inn…

I only have three pictures of us, and they are all taken at The Ship πŸ™‚
