Join the Cure for Breast Cancer

Oct 1, 2012

According to the National Breast Cancer foundation, one in eight woman will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and it is the second leading cause of death among women. My great-grandmother battled breast cancer three times, and I know most of you have stories of family and friends who have been impacted by this disease.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I'm delighted to let you know that over the next five days (through 11:59 PM MST on 10/5/12), 30% of all Crochet Me Shop proceeds go to benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

So pull out your pink shirts and ribbons and use this opportunity to purchase the DVD, pattern, or book that has been on your wish list. You will feel good knowing 30% of the proceeds will benefit a worthwhile foundation.

You can also show your support by crocheting hats for those fighting the devastating affects of cancer. There are some great free crochet hat patterns in Eight Free Crochet Hat Patterns: Crochet Hats with Crochet Me.

We also want to invite you to use any of these cover designs for your own social sites:
