If you haven't heard of Rainbow Looms by now, well, then, you've probably been living under a rock.  They are literally EVERYWHERE, and chances are, you may even be wearing one of the bracelets right now.  My daughter and all her friends have been making them like it's their job, and my car could practically autopilot itself to Michael's to buy the replacement bands.  And since my girl's been dying to sell some bracelets and make some money, we came up with a way for her to earn money AND help a worthy cause.

You see, recently the mom of one of my daughter's good friends was diagnosed with breast cancer.  This has naturally sparked a lot of questions and curiosity about a disease which affects 1 in every 8 women.  We've had a lot of discussions about the treatments our friend will be facing, and my daughter wants to do what she can to help in the fight. And since October just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we figured what better way to raise awareness about a cause that's so close to our own hearts??!

So my daughter has been stockpiling pink bands to represent the iconic pink ribbon and working her fingers to the bone making bracelets.  She is selling each symbolic bracelet for $4 and donating $2 for every bracelet sold to the Breast Cancer Research Foundationwhich uses 91 cents of every dollar donated toward breast cancer research and awareness programs.  My motherly pride is smiling from ear to ear at how excited my girl is about doing her part (however big or little that might be) to help others!

Has Blogging Become One Big Chore?

Have you ever looked at your blog’s dashboard and whimpered to yourself, “Oh, I just cannot in any way, shape, or form write a blog post today?”
