Courage for Kristi

Almost everyone knows that October is the "PINK" month.  Designers and shops sell numerous items to be donated to organizations that support the "Fight for the Cure" of breast cancer. 

Yesterday while looking for some shops to feature, a fellow ETSYNJ team member recommended me this cute, little shop at Etsy.  As a mom of 4 young kids, I was totally touched by the kindness of the people who run this online store. Instead of giving 100% of the sales to organizations, they opt to directly deposit it to the 529 College Fund of 3 young girls who lost a mother to the disease. As what Julie, the shop owner said, "The girls may not have their mother back but they will know that there are people out there who care."

Moved, I'm now dedicating my etsy shop's PINK Section to the cause.  This month, 50% of the sales from this section will be donated to Courage for Kristi. Check out the sites below for gift ideas. Believe me shopping will never feel so good.
