Seeing Pink

Like most women seem to be, I'm passionate about cancer research. All types of cancer research. But the pink ribbon fundraisers running throughout October, really command my attention. My lovely friend Donna, is an absolute star when it comes to fundraising for breast cancer research. Each year, her turnout gets bigger and reaches further than the one before. This year, as always, she organised, prepared and held the event in her home. But this year, she is eight months pregnant. And totally uncomfortable and exhausted. Not that she let on last night, mingling and hosting like a pro. I'm in awe of her dedication and unrelenting support of this amazing cause.

One of the highlights of the night was a fabulous raffle, made up of gorgeous goodies donated by many small businesses. I was rather excited to be one of those businesses, providing a selection of singlets, onesies and tees from my Button Tots range. And an extra special creation whipped up especially for Donna's big night. A huge hit with the gals... and I'm stoked it will be worn by one of the sweetest little two year old's I know. A very successful evening, with the donation tally currently at $1400.00... and still rising!
