The Beehive Is Thinking Pink

Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Well, it is! I know I'm a little late, that's the way I tend to be with birthdays and holidays and the like, but I think it's important enough that it's better late than never. The Race For The Cure happened this past weekend. I always think I'm going to take part, "next year!" but maybe this can be my contribution. That and I want to start buying those "I slept in for the cure t-shirts" every year! So hopefully this will help a little in spreading awareness, inspiring you to find out how you can help find a cure and most importantly stir up a desire for all you ladies to read up on how you can detect breast cancer in yourselves early and therefore increase your chances for survival. 5 min. once a month can be all it takes to save your life!

To celebrate this month I've compiled some etsy finds that I think are super fantastic. They are all made to help spread awareness and are great items to boot! Take a gander at these great things, the great sellers that made them and their shops and then take a gander at the Breast Cancer Awareness buttons on my blog's sidebar.
