Did you see my post and your wondering about the giveaway? First I would like to tell you about a fundraiser that Gaynor is doing. Gaynor was diagnosed with Breast Cancer last year. She has a personal web site for The Irish Cancer Society fundraiser.
Gaynor explains here in her own words....
"The trek is organised by the Irish Cancer Society. It is a sponsored event and in order to take part we each need to raise 3200 euros. The Trek is quite heavy going, up a lot of mountains and it follows the famous Pilgramage walk, I will be walking the last 116 km to Santiago de Compestalla. This page has all the details. http://www.cancer.ie/get-involved/fundraise/challenge-yourself/trek/group.
I started walking under the advice of my oncologist: keeping active helps to reduce the side effects of chemotherapy. I was hoping to walk in ireland but the roads are very dangerous: too dangerous for a woman walking alone. I will be walking in a group for the trek which makes it much safer.
The money on the fundraising page ALL goes to the Irish Cancer Society. Any donations which come to me personally are again, ALL handed to the Irish Cancer Society: I obtain receipts which are given to the donors."
Gaynor is also looking for Good Homes for her handmade items in Exchange for Sponsorship Funds for Cancer Society. Please go to this link to see the items she has made. I made a small donation and picked a fabric heart scissor keep.
I made a donation in honor of my Mother who passed away in 2009, My Uncle who passed away in 2010, and all those who are fighting cancer and those who have fought this horrible Disease.
