As we pass mid-October and move into late-October many of us are aware that Breast Cancer Awareness month is drawing to a close. We are more acutely aware of this dreaded disease than ever before, thanks to the efforts of many public awareness and medical organizations and government agencies. The National Breast Cancer Awareness Month organization is over 25 years old and promotes breast cancer awareness, education, and empowerment. You can find them here, not only in October, but also throughout the year http://www.nbcam.org
Baltimore Etsy Street Team (BEST for short) members have joined the effort to reach out to our community, promote awareness and help make the day-to-day lives of breast cancer patients a little easier. BEST team members have created pasties using many different mediums, including felt, beads, metal, ceramic, feathers, sugar… The list goes on and on – we’re a diverse group. You can peruse and purchase our creations here: www.etsy.com/shop/BEST4breasts
And, check this out – here is what we at Becca & Mars created. Sweet! Literally, we used sugar, but please don’t eat the pasties!
All proceeds collected from the BEST for Breasts sale will be donated to the Red Devils, a Maryland organization that funds services to improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their families. You can find this worthy organization here:
