Get Your Pink On!

I know that sometimes even the most dedicated supporter of breast cancer research wants to wear something that doesn't have a pink ribbon on it. In that spirit I give you this beautiful necklace!

My First Donation!

I would like to publicly thank Jill J. for being the very first to support my 3-Day fundraising this year! Jill is a breast cancer survivor and retired elementary school teacher. She's also walked in the 3-Day!

Thank you Jill!

I have changed my fundraising goal to $500. Anyone who donates $5 or more will receive a thank you gift from me.

Thanks for your generous support!

Make a donation, get a gift!

To express my appreciation to everyone who donates to my 3-Day account, I am offering a small token to everyone that goes to my 3-Day page and makes a donation of any amount. As a crew member my fundraising goal is at least $250. If 25 of my friends, family and loyal readers each donate $10, my goal will be reached and everyone will get a little something as a thank you. And, of course, your donation is tax deductible!

Just follow the link at the top of the page!

Thank you in advance for your continued support!

Spirit Jump Update

A few weeks ago I sent out some spirit jumps. One was a pink ribbon fleece blanket I had made. It went to a young lady in Nevada who is battling breast cancer a second time. I hoped she would like it and didn't expect anything else. Imagine my happiness when I received a lovely card from her thanking me and telling me she was using the blanket! I felt good enough sending the blanket on its way; I had no idea I would actually get to hear that it was enjoyed! I sincerely hope that the blanket continues to make her feel a little cozier as she fights her battle!

For more information on becoming a spirit jumper. Visit the Spirit Jump website or the founder's blog "I kicked cancer's @ss". The links are both on the left side of the page.

On another note, 3-Day season is officially underway! If you're a Michigan crew member make sure you get your crew assignment form filled out ASAP!

Happy New Year!

If you're looking for a simple way to make 2009 better than 2008, I have just the thing for you! Meaghan, a young cancer survivor and owner of I Kicked Cancer's @ss, has started a new project called "Spirit Jump". The concept is a simple one. Cancer patients or their support folks email Meaghan to let her know that someone could use a little pick-me-up. Meaghan then emails her list of Spirit Jumpers. If there is a story that touches you, Meaghan will send the person's contact information to you. From there, you send a card or a small gift. The person feels better, you feel better and the world is a happier place for us all!

If you're interested in becoming a Spirit Jumper, go visit Meaghan and Stacy at Spirit Jump.
