Fellow Etsian Nicole Castille, owner of Nicole's Visions has engaged the ever important undertaking of promoting breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer and diabetes have all but depleted my family's sage grandams. As a result, I have made it a point to actively support any and all efforts to educate women (and men) of the dangers of breast cancer and, the importance of early detection and prevention by way of regular self examination and mammograms.
Last week, Nicole issued a call for bras-big ones, small ones, bras for grandmas and superstars, she's accepting them all. Her mission, while not carved in stone, is to connect the collected bras and string them across the bridge connecting Wenatchee and East Wenatchee. I'm assuming the Wenatchees are in Washington state, I'm certain my very meager bras shown here aren't going to make the trip, so this is where you come in. Gather your bras; too tight, too big, pilled lace, burgeoning underwires, bleach stained, misshapen, hooks missing, safety pinned, ragged old bras. From the most comfortable to the downright painful, toss them in an envelope and mail them to:
PO Box 1602
Wenatchee, WA 98807-1602
Additionally, 25% of your paid postage fees will be donated to charity! What an awesome opportunity to support a worthy cause as you clean your dresser drawers. For more info and updates, see Nicole's blog. Peace.
