With so many fun things to discuss on the podcast, I haven't had a chance to tell you about this great opportunity to raise money to help eliminate breast cancer and since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I wanted to share this with you via the blog.
The Calendar of Hope is a collection of great knitting patterns and they are in their 5th year of publication and has raised over $5000 for Breast Cancer.
The calendar contains 14 never-before-published knitting patterns.
You can download one of the for FREE patterns at www.fitterknitter.com to judge for yourself the quality of patterns.
All proceeds of the sale of these calendars (except of PayPal fees) go to www.ArmyOfWomen.org whose goals are
- To recruit one million healthy women of every age and ethnicity, including breast cancer survivors and women at high-risk for the disease.
- To partner with breast cancer researchers and directly participate in the research that will eradicate breast cancer once and for all.
- To challenge the scientific community to expand its current focus to include breast cancer prevention research conducted on healthy women.
We’ve come a long way in finding a cure for breast cancer. Now let's find the cause.
