BREAKFAST FOR BREASTS

Hi all my lovely friends!
This post is about something so important i just cant express how much.



Most of you would be aware that October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH.
Im sure in some way we all know someone that has been affected by cancer, whether it be Breast Cancer or another form of Cancer...it may be a close friend, a family member, a friend of a friend, or perhaps even yourself...
For me it's my husband who is in remission from Hodgekins Disease and not so long ago i lost one of my dearest and sweetest friends of 30 years through cancer.

So you see, I feel very strongly about helping to find a cure for this horrid disease and im sure you all feel the same.

So here is where YOU can HELP and JOIN ME FOR SOME FUN IN HONOUR OF THOSE WHO ARE SUFFERING, THOSE WHO HAVE SURVIVED AND THOSE WE HAVE SADLY LOST.

On OCTOBER 20th i invite ALL OF YOU to join me in hosting your very own BREAKFAST FOR BREASTS.




There are 2 parts to this Virtual Party.

1) For YOU to host a fun pink breakfast on your blog in honour of every female out there affected by Breast Cancer...AND to have a good time for them!

2) I also ask that you offer something for sale that day whether it be via your blog, website or etsy etc....AND donate the proceeds from that sale to your nearest Breast Cancer Foundation. Your item should be something pretty and sweet that can make a gal smile.....and there is no minimum or maximum dollar amount because we all know that EVERY CENT HELPS!


I TRULY HOPE YOU WILL ALL JOIN ME ON THIS SPECIAL DAY... AND PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD BY ADDING THE BREAKFAST FOR BREASTS BUTTON TO YOUR BLOG AND LINKING IT BACK TO THIS POST.

For an extra bit of fun i will be having A SUPER PINK AND FUN GUESSING COMPETITION on my blog.

I will also be adding links on my blog to every participant on the day so that you can pop by and visit them all.
And please if you see something you love on that day that a blog gal is selling, dont think twice, just purchase it and know that your kindness and generosity is helping toward finding a cure for Breast Cancer.


DONT FORGET...THINK PINK ON OCTOBER 20TH !!!

AND PLEASE CHECK YOUR BREASTS REGULARLY !!!!

Love and Pink Kisses Always...
