The things we do for a Cure…

Creating a World without
Breast Cancer

All of us have been touched in some way by Breast Cancer…a family member, a co-worker, a friend, ourselves, in one way, shape, or form it has entered our lives and altered it in some fashion. 1 in 8 women will develop invasive Breast Cancer in the course of her lifetime. To find a cure there are walks, crops and a gazillion fundraisers out in the world all making a joint effort to continue the fight to find a Cure for this horrible disease.

Charity Wings is no different, in fact the fight against Breast Cancer and the need to raise donations to help fund research and education grants for this fight is at the very core of why Charity Wings was founded and what brought Elena and I together. So over the next two months we’re going to launch a campaign against Breast Cancer.

To start this off, we’re launching a 
“Create a World without Breast Cancer” Campaign.

This last Saturday that campaign got a jump start, some of the ladies who are participating in the 3Day Crop this year, got together for a team building meeting, we discussed the variety of things that they are doing to raise their required donation of $2,000.00 for the 3Day Crop, proceeds from the 3Day Crop benefit the Inland Empire Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Here are some of the ways you can support these ladies over the next few weeks:

  1. Imagine a World without Breast Cancer To get things started, we're going to first Imagine a world without Breast Cancer and what a better way to do that, than to give away a brand new Cricut Imagine Die cutting Machine from Provo Craft. This prize has a $599.00 retail value and is the latest and great thing to come from the awesome people at Provo Craft. We will choose a winner Nov 13th at the 3Day Crop.  Click here to buy tickets and read more

  4. Join the fight against Breast Cancer , we’re raffling off a seat to the 3Day Crop being held November 11-13, 2011 at the Scrap Retreat Inn. It’s a 3 day/2night weekend retreat filled with prizes and surprises celebrating life! for details CLICK HERE.

I hope this campaign allows you to support this very worthy cause.
