Its October now, Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Several cool things have come across my desk this week with regard to raising money for the magnificent mammary, and the research needed to protect it.
Here are a couple that I want to pass on:
Firstly, the very fabulous Halftime Designs have come up with a super cool “Pinktini” design that is available in several different styles of shirts, plus bags, pooch -wear, coasters, water bottles – all kinds of cool stuff.
A percentage of the proceeds from the “Drink Pink” products will be going to
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer. Click Here to go to their website and check out the cool products and all the details!
Aren’t they brilliant? Halftime Designs also do chic and unique designer T’s etc for the girl who loves football, but doesn’t want to wear her boyfriend’s over-sized jersey to a game. (or any other place either for that matter!)
Make sure you scroll around and have a good look when you go to their site!
NAPA Autoparts are also in boobie protection mode, having partnered up with Susan G Komen For The Cure to raise $250 000, with a unique initiative highlighting the importance of preventative maintenance for both your breasts and your car! How cool is that?
I loved this line in the press release: “Our service technicians preach the importance of regular preventive maintenance for your vehicle and the same principle applies for the attention your body needs,”. Quite genius! Preventative maintenance for the boobies – I’m all for it!
If you spend $25 in a NAPA Auto Parts store, or at a NAPA Auto Care Center you will get a Susan G Komen mug.
Even more genius, on October 17th in Charlotte NC, NASCAR driver Michael Waltrip will be driving his NAPA sponsored Toyota Camry with a new pink paint scheme, and apparently will be wearing pink too, to help create awareness for the cause. I would love to be there to see it! (Funnily enough I’ve never been to a NASCAR race, but it is on my to do list)
I have however been to several NHRA races. On October 11th in Richmond Va NHRA Funny Car driver Ron Capps will also be sporting a pink paint scheme on his NAPA car.
The details can be found at www.NAPAonline.com and at www.komen.org
And really, NAPA has to be supported, because afterall, they do keep bringing us those hysterically funny commercials.
Quite frankly, if I ever need to buy a cold start valve temperature switch, I’ll head straight to the nearest NAPA store….
Look after your lovely lady bits!
