PINK ARTIST DRAWING

A long time ago, I told myself that I would try to remember everyday to thank God for everything I have in my life, and in some small way try to do better each day. I made a deal that it doesn't have to be grand all the time, just SOMETHING that may help or make someone's life easier. Sometimes I forget and think my life is difficult, and I am usually rudely reminded of the trials, tribulations, and horrors that others may be facing. So in my small teeny way I am trying to help some very kind blog friends spread the word about helping women with breast cancer, and donating something I made for the cause. You can read all the details here which came from MONICA of GIRL GONE THREAD WILD's blog. This woman has amazingly put together this project for the benefit of others... I implore you to visit her blog and read about this effort, and everyone involved, and do what you can. If you give just a little you will have a chance to win this bracelet that I have donated , and also so many other wildly amazing gifts from artists all over! I discovered Monica's blog through a new collage art friend, who has already fascinated me with her generousity, kindness, caring, and goodwill, and I think I have known her all of 2 days!! Marsha at Tumblefish Studio has confirmed again for me today that when I think things are tough....there is HOPE! Please make a small donation if you can and spread the HOPE. You all know me and my hope!! It works!!

How to give: Monetary donations will be accepted starting July 31st up until October 15, which is the OFFICIAL day of the drawing. The month of October is as you know Breast Cancer Awareness month. Together we'll make this a fun & rewarding way to HELP others. Donations being accepted are money orders made out to Susan G. Komen and mailed to Monica Magness PO Box 2206 Madison, AL 35758 where your name will be entered into our drawing & donations will be collected and sent in to our charity on Oct. 22nd. Sorry, no personal checks. Cash sent at your own risk. Or you can paypal your donation to

MLMagness@aol.com with the subject header: THE PINK ARTIST DRAWING and your name will go into our drawing and ALL funds will be forwarded to our charity. Please note that paypal takes a fee to operate, be sure to take this into consideration when making your donation. Please make sure your name and address are legible (typed is best for accuracy). Though ANY donation amount is cheerfully accepted, for every $10 donation you send in your name will be entered into our drawing twice. A PAYPAL button will be available on this blog starting July 31st.

The winners names will be announced on my blog on October 17th.

What a fantastic initiative. Back in my research days, one of my specialty areas was breast cancer. So this is an especially dear to my heart charity area.
