Think Pink

Perfect Pink
As well as the month of Blogtoberfest, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. The pink ribbon merchandise has become a common reminder of a very good cause, and one that is very close to me.
Once again my Mum will have to pull on her fighting boots and battle it. At the moment she is radiating positivity and determination, two strengths that have help her beat it before.
For the last two years I have made pink Betty Jo goodies to raise money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

This year I will just have a giveaway, but I pledge to donate either as many dollars as there are entries or the value of the goodies, whatever is highest.
So to be in the running for this little package of Betty Jo stuff (including two brooches and some gift cards), and to help a good cause, enter here for a chance to win!
Winner announced on Monday 25th October- "Pink Ribbon Day"

  1. What a strong Mum! Wish this were otherwise. My very best wishes go her way.
    What other Think Pink products display the same exploration of the breadth of "pinkness" as yours do, Betty Jo?

  2. I wish your Mum all the best. Luckily for my family we've yet to be touched by this disease, but I do believe every woman can still relate in some way. So, putting in my entry to raise the dollar value of your donation for such a great cause.

  20. Oh honey, you too?? My children are down one Nanny due to breast cancer, it's just plain cruel. So sad that she never got to meet a further 6 grandchildren, but she knew we were pregnant with our first when she passed away, so i know that made her happy. Sending pink vibes, love you, Posie
