Join Me in Stamping Out Breast Cancer

Imagine a world with more birthdays, a cure for Breast Cancer...  I am soooo excited to be working on an event to support the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer campaign.

It's not just for you and I, but for all the generations to follow. Those who have passed and watched our loved ones slip away. For my friend Pat who is now a 10 year survivor and my friend Kim who lost her battle last February and left behind many caring friends and a loving family.  Please join me and my girlfriends for the first annual Stamp Out Breast Cancer Event Fundraiser, in conjunction with the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Walk.

World Card Making Day seemed like the perfect time to have an event to benefit cancer since it is also national Breast Cancer Awareness month! So here are some more details. The day before the Making Strides walk in Boston, on October 2nd, a team of 12 demonstrators from across Massachusetts and Southern New Hampshire are gathering to provide a set of 5 cards for $20. All the supplies for the event are being donated by the demonstrators. 100% of your $20 donation will be going directly to Making Strides. In fact, part of the registration process is to make your donation direct to Making Strides on our team site.  Our team is called Stamp Out Breast Cancer and  our team member "event registration" will setup your registration for our event.

If you are unable to attend the event, but would like to purchase the directions to make the 5 projects shown above (designed by convention display stamper and just a super talented lady, Kerin Sylvester), you can donate $20 to the "stamping team" team member on our making strides site and you will have the directions emailed to you.  Click here to make a donation or to register for our event.

For more details about the event, or to make a donation of any amount (which will certainly help a whole lot!) check out the flier here.

Here is a picture of the planning meeting for our big event! This is just a few of the demonstrators involved in making it all happen. I hope to have more pictures for you as time goes on. This event has been in the planning stages for many months and we are very excited to present a stamping opportunity for all, that will help raise money for a cure.

We hope you will join us on Saturday October 2nd in Burlington for Stamp Out Breast Cancer as well as on Sunday October 3rd at the Hatch Shell in Boston for the 17th annual Making Strides walk, if you are interested. If you are planning to walk on the 3rd feel free to join our team!

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is more than just the name of a walk; it describes the progress we're making together in the fight against breast cancer. Nothing can describe the hope that is inspired by walking with others who share a passion for ending this disease. Because nearly everyone has been touched by breast cancer in some way, hope for a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays starts with us. We've decided to show our support and make a difference by stamping as a team in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event.

Saving lives from breast cancer starts one team, one walker, one stamper and one dollar at a time. Join us, and together we will create a world with less breast cancer and more birthday celebrations.
