Breast Cancer Awareness

Over the years I have known several people who had breast cancer.
I feel that adding a whole line of breast cancer awareness products to my Zazzle site is the right thing for me to do.
It can't be right, however, unless I do not fully profit from the sales of my products.

I pledge to donate
50% of my profits from all sales of any of my breast cancer awareness products to the Tumor Vaccine Group at the University of Washington for Breast Cancer Research.

You can check them out at: http://depts.washington.edu/tumorvac/index.php

To find the products that will benefit breast cancer research click here:

To be sure more of your dollars go toward research, make sure there is an asterisk (*) at the end of the link.
If you use this link, 8.5% of the money you spend will go directly toward breast cancer research.

Please pass along this email to others so that the donations can begin and eventually grow.

Thank you in advance for your contribution!

  4. Updated News:
    I emailed the Tumor Vaccine Group (TVG) to let them know I was rasing money for them. I received an email back on Monday:

    HI Jessica,

    We are honored to be chosen as a recipient of your fundraising efforts!

    The Tumor Vaccine Group is dedicated to developing new treatments in the laboratory and bringing those treatments to patients in their real-life struggle against cancer. Every dollar we receive is used for our research. We plan to have an open house in February 2008, and welcome our contributors, patients, and the general public. I'll put you on our invitation list for this event, and if I think of anything else, I'll let you know.

    Best regards,
    Kathy

    I'm so excited to be invited to this event as I was planning on handing over the first of many donations in February 2008. I really want to be able to give them more than just a few dollars, so I am really hoping that I will have a nice amount to donate by February.

    I will probably hand over my donations every February so that I am donating at a time when they need it more. I'll ask Kathy what month would be best for them and go from there.

    HOORAY!!!
