Good Cause!

The annual Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is April 10th and 11th in Houston!
Its the 3rd year and it's getting bigger and better every year.

"A vibrant international city, cultural diversity, picturesque parks and a leading medical community making cancer history-all provide obvious and persuasive reasons why we'll walk in the great city of Houston. You'll walk amidst glorious oak trees, funky antique and craft shops, designer boutiques and pictorial greenbelts while witnessing Houston's skyline, which showcases some of the best modern architecture around...

"The money we raise will provide women and men the breast cancer screening, support and treatment they need regardless of their ability to pay, and so that leading-edge research teams across the country can be powered by the funds they need to fuel their quest for a cure." - [ Avon Walk Houston page ]

My coworker, Chy and her friend Lauren are representing team Breast Foot Forward. They're putting on a few fundraisers around town and are currently taking donations as every little bit you can spare will make a big difference! Visit their page for more info!

Upcoming events:

March 14 ~ Sunday Funday Crawfish Boil @ Vida Loca!!
March 20 ~ Scene Nightclub & Lounge
March 21 ~ Sunday Funday Pub Crawl starting at Lucky's downtown

To contribute, I am making these Springtime inspired breast cancer awareness ribbon pins with selling them for 6$ each, with 50% being donated to the Avon Foundation (see how the money is spent here).

They're about 3.5" tall and 2.5" wide, also available with pale pink ribbon and hot pink flower.

Please let me know if you're interested in purchasing a pin and stop by the Breast Foot Forward team page to donate any amount!

Thank you!
