"United Hearts", women caring for each other....
Thursday, September 16, 2010
I have so much exciting news, some of which I can't share quite yet, but will as soon as possible. First, we've received so many calls since the Sunday article in the Lansing State Journal, which you can read here
if you missed it the first time around. I have 5 women coming in today to be photographed and more tomorrow, with several more who've called, but haven't scheduled yet! An amazing response of women, wanting to help other women!
I'm thrilled to announce that we'll be partnering with Citadel Broadcasting to create a fundraising calendar using your gorgeous images! It will be a 15 month calendar, starting with next month and continuing through December 2011! It will sell for $12 and all proceeds will go to The Oldham Project!! We will be working with their creative department to design it and work with a local printer to have it available for the "Pink Tie Affair" event on October 4th! I'm hoping that all of our Bold and Beautiful women will want at least one for themselves and be able to sell a few more to family and friends for us! It's not often that someone offers to create and print something like this and WE get all the proceeds! I'll keep you posted about where and when you can start to purchase them!
Also, I wanted to share a bit about one of our sponsors... Petra Azar and the "United Heart"
jewelry. She has generously donated 12 pieces of this jewelry that we'll be giving away at the end of this campaign! Necklaces, earrings and rings!! The United Heart and it's unique design and magnetic attraction symbolizes the bond of sisterhood that helps these women through this most difficult journey of cancer and chemo. This battle will forever join these women together in a unique sisterhood, just as the magnetic closure of this jewelry bonds it together in such a strong and seamless attraction. Please stop in sometime at Wheat Jewelers in Okemos to see all the gorgeous and unique pieces in this collection! Mention this project and let Kevin know that you've participated in the Be Bold, Feel Beautiful campaign!
And lastly and most excitedly, I'm happy to announce that our annual fundraising Gala to honor these women will be January 13, 2011 at Eagle Eye Golf Club in East Lansing, MI. Please mark your calendars now to make sure you're able to attend this amazing event. We hope to have all or most of the women who participated in this campaign attend so that they are able to meet each other, share their stories and be honored for their bravery through this journey of cancer! I may have more exciting news about the event to come in the next weeks, so stay tuned!!
Let's go out today and tackle the world with the same courage and optimism that these women approach their cancer!
