it's not over yet ;)

we had a baby shower for this little lady this weekend and i got the chance to catch up with good friends...

the neotraditionalist

our friend, christina is the executive director of the mid-kansas affiliate of susan g. komen for the cure in wichita. she inspires me daily, but this time she inspired me to post a little about what this month is all about. october isn't over yet and it's all about pink ;)

you see, christina's family was hit (more than once!) with breast cancer and thankfully her strong family and faith got them though it.... and now she's courageously raising money with the susan g. komen foundation to find a cure for all the rest of us.

the foundation to date has raised $450 million for research projects and $50 million to improve/find new early detection and screening tools.

christina emailed me, what i thought, a wonderful fact:

75% of the money raised by the susan g. komen foundation in kansas, stays there to help those in kansas and the other 25% is contributed to the national award and research grant program to fund more research.

it affects us all as women, and we should all do what we can to contribute. big or small.


one of my favorite ideas christina presented me with was eating a peanut butter and jelly sandwich once a week... while helping women at the same time! you see, you eat in once a week and then donate the money you save by not going out!

simple, painless yet so very helpful!
