Etsy Seller: CoastersAndCards

Next in my series highlighting beautiful, handmade pink ribbon items is CoastersAndCards. Two years ago she lost her father to lung cancer and her mother is currently in remission from breast cancer, so she is painfully aware of the distress cancer causes. Her pink ribbon cards are gorgeous and for every one she sells at $1.25, $1 is donated to breast cancer research.

Etsy Seller: Moodwax

Today I am beginning a holiday series featuring some absolutely beautiful, handmade pink ribbon items. I hope you will consider purchasing some of these items for holiday gifts, or for your own enjoyment. Let's keep the hope of a cure alive all year!

Etsy :: Moodwax :: Candles for the Cure - 4 Awareness Votives

Today's item is brought to you from Moodwax. Moodwax is a candlemaker on who, as a young adult, lived in Florida and helped her grandmother in her recovery from breast cancer. She says, "I admire the strength she had thru her treatments, and in a small way I honor her memory and others who have gone through the same thing with these candles".

If you're interested in using these as a fundraiser, contact her for larger quantities.

Please use the link above to visit Moodwax's store. This holiday let's support a cure AND talented artisans.

Vote Tomorrow!

Just a friendly reminder to get out and vote tomorrow if you're in the U.S. I know alot of focus goes to the presidential race, but be aware of the ballot proposals too. That's where research funding and other important items are found!
