We Challenge You!!

Ok Here we Go again! Who's ready to be challenged??

This time its for a good cause though! (Click here for official Thread)

Sarah (aka sarahinflorida) and myself want to challenge YOU to come up with something - handmade of course by you, that is Breast Cancer Awareness or Boob related in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness next month.

Here's the deal..... You must create something new (not already made or listed) that is appropriatly themed. It can be anything you want! (pasties, bras, maybe a nipple hat? or something pink, or with a pink ribbon on it!) But it must be made and listed by 5pm etsy time on September 20th. You may create more than one item for this challenge - but only one can be submitted for votes.

You also must agree, that if you sell your item (or items) that the proceeds are donated to the Susan G Komen Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

This Challenge is not about winning this time, its about giving back! My mother is a breast cancer survivor, and i think most of us know a love one who has gone through this!

From September 20th, til noon Sunday September 28th, we will keep a thread going with all our entries, so people can come in and vote on them and hopefully support the cause and buy!

Everyone will be allowed 1 vote! However,for everyone of your items that sell you will get another 5 votes. (hope that makes sense) Because again, you can make more than one item for this challenge!

We do have a prize for the winner! A beautiful Pink Ribbon Pen in a lovely gift tin as well as a special one of a kind Pink Breast Cancer Survivor Throw a Fit Doll.

This is an open contest! Anyone and everyone is welcome to enter! There will be no cutoff, because this is for charity! So lets make it huge and get a lot of donations!

So Who's in? Join us here if you want to be a part of it! http://www.etsy.com/forums_thread.php?thread_id=5791552&page=1

Great idea for a great cause, and one near and dear to my heart. I'll give it some thought... :}

I did the 60 mile/3day walk from San Jose to San Francisco in 2000. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life thus far!
