Hi, Nice idea. Hopefully, one day we won't have to make things pink for breast cancer awareness, but can just make things pink for the fun of it!

A cause near and dear to me. I am a 5 year survivor. Yesterday, I attended the Breast Cancer Survivors Tea at my medical center. Over 100 women and men, with their guests. Lots of people don't seem to realize that men can get breast cancer too! Take care, everyone, and may all who get this be sucessfully treated, to join the ranks of survivors!

I really like your Mommy's Idea! I wish I'd thought of it. Ha ha! My blog is www.differentdogblog.blogspot.com and I write about my boring life and things I find online and hear on tv and the world etc. I also am trying to promote needy moms, so they and their families can get help from around the world and from the blogging community.

Different Dog said...

I also added your passionately pink button to my blog. Awesome!

I wear pink to my bible study every Wednesday. I have a dear friend who is surviving breast cancer right now! And I do it to remember my mom's best friend Laura who passed away almost 8 years ago now. Think Pink!

I salute you on spreading the word.

My Grandmother had breast cancer and she had to have a mastectomy. It then turned into lung cancer and killer her. There are too many wonderful people that have this awful disease. I hope we find a cure very soon and hope that not another person suffers from this!

By the way I love the tote!

I had a lumpectomy last June. It was nothing. To be aware it could have been something, well, I love to help this cause. More then anything I love to help the fight against breast cancer. Now for you to promote a great bag to help the cause is so sweet. Everyone I know automatically helps with donations for the fight against breast cancer. They don't need to win a great bag to help. To know that someone special will get a bag for helping is super sweet. I hope a great mom gets the bag!!! Your support, Jessie Prince
