Posting Pink: Brides Against Breast Cancer


This site is really amazing and important. I really urge each and every one of you that are reading this to take part...

The Brides Against Breast Cancer Project is a nation-wide tour which brings brides designer gowns at discounted rates... and the proceeds are then donated to the Making Memories Foundation.

Already have a gown? Take part in the Pink Envelope Project... get creative with it!! You can use the donations as favors... or you can really include your guests and have the age-old money dance's proceeds go to the cause... or put the charity on your registry in leui of that toaster you've been eyeing...
And now I am about to say something that I normally would not... but in this case- I feel it necessary to get down to the nitty gritty dirt that we sometimes sweep under the rug... all of you gorgeous girls out there that recently became part of the ex-engagement population or even those of you who are now ex-wives... you've contemplated what to do with that ring for a while now- it has lost its sentiment and you are not about to give it back for whatever your reasons are... so be it... but know that when you are ready to part ways and move on- Diamonds For Dreams would be such a wonderful home for the jewel... in letting go of the past you will be giving some other lucky woman a future....

Enough already... visit the site... fall in love with it as I did... and make a difference. Don't let this "Pink Day" end here... spread the word- send ripples .... save lives.

What a great event. My mother was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at the age of 37... yup it is a very young age...

I think that whatever can be done to offer women the chance to live their dreams is really important. Highlight their life and not the disease.

Unfortunately in Canada, we cannot participate fully... but I am considering donation favors...
Research saved my mother...and it can save many more.

Give generously

Danielle, my great-grandmother passed away from breast cancer many years ago. Now, through research and early detection woman are beating this cancer in large numbers. I am a strong supporter of breast cancer awareness and I think it's great that we bloggers are "posting pink". If nothing else but to bring forth awareness.

My great-grandmother did not have the benefit of all the research that is available today; but I am happy that it is saving so many lives today and you never know it might save mine!

Great post
