Pink Campaign





Julie Fiske, a fashion designer, started a campaign in 2008, designing for companies like Levi, Gymbroee, and Adidas, Julie started her own sisterhood production with "Save the Ta-Tas" t-shirts and accessories.


This graphic is a favorite of mine, just as popular as the other tee's, it shows the love heart in the center of the cause.








Julie Fiske was first touched by cancer as a young girl when her grandmother had a double mastectomy, then again in 2004 when another relative under went another surgery. ***CUTE!***


That was when she decided to promote the importance of self beauty and confidence in the hearts of the women who have or had breast cancer.








Part of the proceeds from sales go to breast cancer research, to date they have donated 339,000.

I've never heard of this campaign. Interesting indeed.

I like Beverly's idea of meeting new bloggers. I did that in the beginning of blogging but don't seem to have the time now. I will probably slow down this winter and do something like that. Dawn...congrats on your 500th post!! I found out through reading Kathleen's! Sorry about that...I am out of the loop lately. I have a million things going on in my head and not much actually getting accomplished. Did you clean up the garden yet? Mine's done...what a big job huh? Your giveaway of course reminds me of the one I won!! Every day I walk by Ann and Andy in my room in their chair and smile. I have shown your work to many friends and they are all amazed with the dolls...and the pillow. Some lucky person will get to win another of your lovely crafts!

Happy Pink Saturday.
This is a devastating disease. My mother had the surgery as 83 yrs. young. I've know several that have had this awful disease. I truly hope they find a cure.

Lovely Pink Saturday post and sweet blog, too. Woke up to a dusting of snow on the ground so even thought this isn't Saturday I really needed a boost! Today you made me smile...

Sorry, I didn't get to see everyone yesterday. I had important business. My 11 year-old grandson was playing football and he wanted Mimi to go to the out-of-town-last-of-the-season-game. THEY WON AGAINST AN UNDEFEATED TEAM! WOO-HOO! 35 - 17☺

Hope the coming week blesses you with sunshine, happiness and good friends.

Dawn...just a hello from a fellow Maine blogger, in honor of the New England Bloggers group reaching 100!

Great post in support of a very important cause.

I enjoy your blog, and love hearing how other Mainers are doing throughout the state. My blog is mostly about books, (I work in the South Thomaston library), but there's travel, and turkey and other Maine Stuff in there too.

Good luck with continued success for your blog. Stop by sometime at Tutu's Two Cents and say Hi.
