Making Great Strides

I realized this morning, I leave two weeks from today to embark on a journey I am sure to remember the rest of my life.

Earlier this month many of us attended Affiliate Summit in Boston. We met each other, many of us, for the first time.

This is a few of us… Including my husband, who won’t be walking but proudly wears boob shirts.

While attending the event we sold fabulous buttons that said “I Gave back” for $10 each. We only spent a single day selling, but came away with just over $1600.00. More importantly we came away having met so many more that shared stories and heart felt compation for the cause. It was truly a great exeperience, and I imagine just a small taste of what lies ahead.

So now that I am in “the walk is almost here” mode, I, along with the rest of the team are starting to pick up last minute necessities. We’re finalizing our registration processes, wrapping up our travel plans and trying to mentally prepare for this big adventure.

I’m excited! I have no idea, really, of what awaits — but it’s a challenge I am looking forward to – because it’s a path to a change I want to be a part of!

It’s not too late, if you’d like to help support our team and the fight for breast cancer, please make a donation and share the joy!

Selling mini buttons for donations

There’s a little funky art shop in downtown Littleton, Colorado. I’ve been a contributing artist at this shop for a few years now… so this week I went and spoke to the owner about helping raise donations for our BCA walk team. She agreed! I’m so delighted she said yes, without the slightest hesitation!

Pink Ribbon Penguins raising funds at Willow

So, together, we will be selling pink ribbon penguin mini buttons at Willow with the proceeds going directly to the Affiliates Marketers Worldwide team. Unfortunately Willow doesn’t have a website for you to purchase these buttons from.. but if you’re in Littleton, stop by and tell them Jen sent you!
