Jewelry for a Cause:

Who needs a special, sentimental gift that also donates to charity? Brenda Monn at Jerry’s Occoquan jewelers in VA has four exclusive designs that each symbolize something quite empowering. ‘The Survivor Gift’ speaks to those who have conquered any adversity; “A drop of Faith” (pictured below) was inspired by her own personal battle with breast cancer. “Helen’s Whistle” helps to remind us that we are never alone; and “III” symbolizes that you can overcome the impossible. Check out the link for more details!

But wait…. how cool is this???? Brenda donates 7% of your purchase to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

So… a gift that has meaning, is absolutely beautiful, and helps work towards finding a cure!

Girl Scouts:

Juliette Gordon Low, the founder of Girl Scouts, had breast cancer. She actually died from it. So, every year in her honor, Girl Scouts across America work to earn badges by spreading awareness and educating women.\ about breast cancer. A local group made these necklaces to distribute, and they had me interview survivors from all over the country when I went to San Diego for the Komen 3 Day event. (A fundraiser where we walked 60 miles in 3 days to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer). Hear what these brave women had to say in our SURVIVOR section.

Swimathon:

We started an annual swimathon in our neighborhood, where families could come together and have a good time while supporting the fight against this awful disease. We wanted even the littlest of kids to know that they had the power to make a big difference in the world, and they did. We had a lemonade stand set up with a bake sale, a DJ, swim events, floating contests, raffles, and awards. All proceeds went to Susan G. Komen Coastal Georgia.

Komen:

Many want to know how they can help. Well, we push forward for change and pave the way to a world without breast cancer when we put plans into actions. We can improve things for the next round of warriors when we fundraise and when we promote awareness and education. It’s not about one person who fixes everything; rather change is made when we unite our efforts. No amount is too small; for each act…each donation… is its own flicker of light, and when we unite the light, we strengthen our hope and resolve to weather this storm. So, give back…even just a little. Susan G. Komen Coastal Georgia is working to do that. Hear what they have to say about the Power of One.
