Okay....blogs are personal right? Well, its about to get very personal....I lost my Mum to breast cancer 10 years ago....I am not here to cry on your shoulder, it was a long time ago now and whilst there is never a day that I don't think of her...we all have a story to tell...this just happens to be one of mine.
SO! In years gone by, I have always used Mothers Day as a day to do something positive for the community...previously we have planted trees (see treesformum.com for further info), this year it will be red elephant creative helping me make the difference.
Heres' the drill...
I have JUST released a new garland - pink sweet hearts, for every one sold prior to Mothers Day (Sun 8th may) I will donate $2 to breast cancer research. The garland can be used to decorate your Mothers Day table, wrap around your mums gift....drape it on her dressing table mirror, or across her bed - remind her your heart belongs to her, on Mothers Day!
In addition, I will be adding the pink and red plad cupcake toppers - and pink and white striped toppers - where $1.50 of each packet sold will be donated. Make mum cupcakes, or perfect for your Mothers Day lunch table...use them as fruit platter picks, atop chocolates and petit four or sweets for high tea or even tie one to her gift as decoration.
As I release more PINK SWEET HEART creations, they will be included in this little fundraiser...Help the red elephant make a contribution to breast cancer research (see http://www.nbcf.org.au/)
