I’m super excited that any moment now Whippy Cake will be selling a special edition “Save the Tatas” applique to help with the efforts to raise awareness for Breast Cancer. It seems like each of us knows someone or IS someone who has/is battling with breast cancer or sadly has already lost someone to the disease. It’s always so inspiring to see women, friends and family supporting and rallying to lift one another up in situations where breast cancer has left it’s devastating mark. I got an email from a special customer (thanks Holly!!!) asking if I could custom design a breast cancer inspired applique for her to wear during her race against breast cancer and I was so touched by the idea I wanted to make this design available to anyone wanting to support the cause. It’s been so exciting to see pink just about everywhere throughout October (breast cancer awareness month) and though I may be late as usual I couldn’t wait to get in on the pink action. Be sure to check FB or the WC online shop today for the Tatas applique to debut. I’m offering the Tatas applique while supplies last in hopes that more people will be able to get their hands on one of these pink beauties which are also available as a mini applique. I will be donating 20% of sales from the Tatas appliques to Jen Christensen through The Amercian Cancer Society to help her reach her goal and support her on her journey. I got an email about Jen from one of our good friends and I thought I would share a little blurb from that email so you would know why I felt so inspired to do something.
“She’s in full recovery, but she promised herself that if she survived this, she would dedicate the rest of her life in fighting this disease. She tries to raise a measly $1,000 every year for this and I don’t know if she’s ever made her goal.”
Brings a tear to the eye doesn’t it! So let’s see how much awareness us WC girls can conjure up for her cause! You can also go to Jen’s page and contribute by donating to her directly online.
