Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and that gave me the idea to find some wonderful shops on Etsy that are donating a portion of their proceeds to the Susan G Komen Foundation for breast cancer awareness, support and finding the cure. Here are some beautiful items that you can buy to help with this cause...scroll to the bottom of this post for a little extra incentive!












From Kays Krafts:Breast Cancer Awareness Memory Board - $24.99


20% of the proceeds to be donated.

From Wags Creations:Give Hope ....Coaster Set - $15.00


100% of the proceeds from this will be donated!

From Coasters And Cards: Stamp Out Breast Cancer Card - PIF


This is a Pay It Foward (PIF) listing for $0.21. You will pay the $0.21 to get this card, which will be donated. Same goes for any other cards in the Pay It Forward section of this shop.

Seeing as this is a giving thing, let's get some sales going to assist with donations! Lanae Photography has graciously donated a 4"x6" copy of the print shown below as part of a contest. All you need to do is find a store on Etsy that is donating part of the proceeds from an i tem to Breast Cancer Awareness, and post a link to either the store or the item in the comments here. The only rule is that it can't be a store already shown here!! On November 1, a winner will be chosen and this print will be yours.

Great giveaway for a great cause!
I am impressed with how many Etsians have listed items to help raise money and awareness for Breast Cancer research.
One of my favorites is Pretty Little Thieves "drawing for pink" http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_19&listing_id=15625942
Five dollars from the sale of every Drawing For Pink print will be donated to the Susan J Komen Foundation.
