Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to help the cause two wonderful Etsyans, MissKnits and SarahinFlorida, have hosted a challenge calling shops to create items relating to breasts/breast cancer and list them in their shops with the proceeds going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for a Cure.

54 shops have risen to the challenge so far, and although the challenge doesn't officially start until September 20th, several items have already been listed and sold. In fact, $72 has already been raised, and I know that number will skyrocket in the coming weeks.

I am very happy to participate in the challenge, and have listed several items in my shop, with the hope of adding several more before the 20th. Above, you see the picture of one of the aceo's that I made and is currently for sale in my shop.

If you want to see where the challenge originated, you can visit the thread on Etsy. The thread also contains a list of all of the participating shops as well as the items as they are listed. It will also keep a running tally of the money raised as the items sell.
