Breast Cancer Awareness Month...

This is NOT a paid post- just me sharing some info.
As most people know, October is breast cancer awareness month. There are a number of ways you can help fight breast cancer, and it's great when you can do something for yourself that also helps others. Being a total chocoholic, I had to mention that Fannie May Candy is currently offering two special boxes of chocolates where 10% of the proceeds will be donated to support Breast Cancer Awareness and an additional 10% will be matched by the Coleman Foundation.
The top left photo is of their Chocolate Mint Meltaways, and the bottom photo is their Pecan Pixies (turtles).
This year, their "Limited Edition Pink Collection" will support The Cancer Wellness Center, Jennifer S. Fallick Cancer Support Center, Wellness House, Wellness Place and Gilda's Club Chicago. These charitable organizations provide free support and education to those affected by cancer. So if you like good quality, kitchen fresh chocolate, go to Fannie May and do something good at the same time. To learn more, click here.

I used to work for Fannie May Candy Company about 12 years ago and always thought they were a good organization. Aside from making delicious chocolates, this is just another reason for me to continue liking them! So if you're inclined to do something to fight breast cancer, sponsor a walk, or make a donation, or treat yourself to some of these delicious chocolates and support a good cause. Whatever you decide, do something!

Yes, do something indeed! And if you are like me and are not a fan of chocolate (Gasp!) you can come on over to my site and donate $5, $10 or $1000 to the Breast Cancer walk this Sunday.

Both my mil and my gma had breastcancer..lucky for us, they're survivors.

I recall when I first joined the mtg world years ago, the word, Fannie Mae was spoken by my GM..here I thought they were giving out pixies..I'm an ass, I know. :)
Always,

There are different ways to fight breast cancer and one of the way is candy fundraising. Fund-raising does not have to be dull, predictable and boring.If you see something with a pink wrapper and some facts, trivia, competitions, breast cancer awareness candy drives, there is lots to watch and learn from them.
