Last week, I debuted two Breast Cancer Awareness Pins:
For my first pin, “Hope Awareness Pin,” I wanted to bring even a
small smile to those going through the arduous ordeal of breast cancer,
to offer something that says “yea, it sucks, but I will get through it!”
With the “Mom Awareness Pin,” I wanted to give someone whose mother is
going through the battle, or lost their fight, and they want a sweet,
simple way to remember and honor her.
I never imagined the response these two little pins would generate.
While they are both still available in my shop (as of September 10), it
made me realize-breast cancer is a huge deal in the world, and many
people could use a little extra strength, or a reminder of hope in their
everyday life. So I made a decision-and now I make an announcement-I am
going to present a Breast Cancer Awareness line of pins, and a portion
of each sale will go to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
This line will launch in my Storenvy store on Monday, September 17th, 2012. But you don’t have to wait until then
to see the sweet designs I have created. Everyday I will be offering
sneak peaks on my blog and my Facebook page.
Additionally, I will be sharing the stories of the strong people in my
life who have faced cancer, and I welcome you to share yours. Cancer is
something that doesn’t care if you’re a democrat or republican, rich or
poor, black, white, Asian, man, woman-it just does not care! We need to
come together to find a cure and offer support for those fighting
everyday. Please spread the word and join me!!
Remember, I also take special orders on pins, small wreaths (approx
8″ in diameter) and larger wreaths (10″ in diameter) If there is someone
special you’d like to honor in a unique way, just email me and I will
do my best to make it happen! Please email me at Marelladesigns@gmail.com
