Jewelry for a good cause

This year, approximately 22 400 canadian women will be diagnosed with breast cancer. 5300 of them will not survive.

This is the reason why some friends and I decided to enroll for the CIBC Run for the Cure, for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. On October 5th 2008, we will walk 5 km for all the men and women affected by breast cancer. (Not only women can have breast cancer, let's not forget it !) We are very motivated, and have a team objective of 3200$. We are planning diverse activities during the summer, such as bowling nights, movies nights and even a beach party BBQ.

As a part of the fund raising, I will be donating 75% or my profits on the pink items listed in my shops. Some of them have been created specially for this event, some of them were already listed for sale. If, however, you do not wish to purchase pink items but still make a donation, there is a possibility to sponsor me. Donations can be made online, on the Run for the Cure website. It is fast and secure, and can be anonymous or not. For more information, see the link below.

Help us create a future without breast cancer.
