October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month; Let’s be selfless and charitable…. oh and also let’s do a little shopping (for a cause)!
Coming from a family affected by breast cancer, I am here to tell you that building awareness, helping fund research and education and spreading the good word is of the utmost importance. The Fashionable Housewife and The Fashionable Gal are committed to support the cause and TA DAAAAAAAAH have launched Fashionable Gals for a Cure. This event will include four weeks filled with prizes from some great sponsors as well as an auction. This crazy awesome event will help provide awareness and raise money to find a cure for Breast Cancer which is amaaaaaazing.
For every dollar donated through the Susan G. Komen page on The Fashionable Gal, the donor will receive an entry to win a prize package of their choice. Multiple entries on multiple prizes are allowable. Generous sponsors have donated hundreds of dollars worth of prizes to make up nearly 20 prize packages valued at $150. Individual prizes over $150 will be auctioned off in late October. Prizes include everything from jewelry to bras to hair care to gift cards- and everything in between! The prizes will make wonderful gift ideas or a way to pamper the entrants themselves!
Participants (and sponsors!) are encouraged to help promote Fashionable Gals for a Cure on their own websites and blogs. Fashionable Media, Inc. has specially designed buttons and banners for their use. The person who makes the biggest donation will receive $100 to SuperShoes.com and the person with the most referrals will win $100 to EdenFantasys.com.
Sounds cool right? Well that is because it is cool! Can I get a what what for raising much needed funds for a spectacularly great cause? Every little bit counts…
