I wanted to let you know that after you sent me a Convo letting me know that you were going to wear this blazer for breast cancer awareness month, I started thinking of how I could involve my shop in cancer awareness. My decision has been to join the 'Etsy Project Embrace Team' (click HERE to read more) where I can donate proceeds from the shop to cancer awareness or research, as well as support other team members in their efforts. I have done charitable donations in the past and have wanted to make it a more regular part of my shop, but wasn't sure how. Your message was the catalyst for me actually taking the steps to do something about it. Thank you.
Kind Regards, CrabappleVintage
Wow...how inspiring! It really does only take one person to make a difference in this world. One of my favorite online sites, Shopbop.com, also has a few items for sale that benefit Breast Cancer (Click HERE to see). I recently purchased the Breast Cancer Awareness Heart Bracelet by Gorjana in which 60% of the proceeds from each bracelet will be donated to Breast Cancer Connections.
