Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Monday, October 13, 2008

My sorority's national philanthropy is Breast Cancer Awareness and Education, and through that opportunity has become a cause near and dear to my heart.

There are quite a few wedding blogs that have special events and features going on for October! Check them out here:

Style Me Pretty is doing a "Pink Week" this week, showing all sorts of fabulous pink details across many weddings and photographers.

With This Ring has a lovely post about the new Brides Magazine's Something Pink Initiative They are featuring wedding gowns specially designed, with something pink of course, that will benefit the breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Check out this event in Seattle. Love the name "Get Hitched Give Hope"

The Bride's Guide has a post up as well with links and information about different companies getting involved such as Thread, who is offering a 10% discount on orders in October! (a portion of that money will be donated to Breast Cancer Awareness)

but beyond the wedding world...
