At my open house Sunday, I had one more bracelet left. A friend of mine bought it for her friend who was just finishing up her chemo. I sent my check to Susan G. Komen this week in honor of her friend.
I am all out of breast cancer awareness bracelets now, but I have lots of pink beads. I will make more soon. I am very happy that I have been able to donate $60 to Susan G. Komen! And there was an unexpected benefit from this, too. My first customer mentioned to me how much she liked her bracelet and that it gave her comfort in remembering her cousin. I had never anticipated the aspect of offering comfort to someone who lost a loved one. My main goal had been to raise money for Susan G. Komen. But this second benefit is just as great as the donations.
Writing about this has made me realize that I need to make more bracelets SOON! Won't you please help spread the word that my etsy shop is making donations to help fight breast cancer with the sale of these bracelets?
