Team Pink Eye Week Four WINNERS and Total to Date

The Team Pink Eye Project has now ended its active phase. Our goal was to raise $1,000 for Susan G Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure. We are humbled to announce that our total to date is $1,424.95! We not only reached our goal, we surpassed it, and we still have donations coming in the next couple of weeks from the products sold and the possible matching donation from Frances’ company. None of this would have been possible without everyone’s participation, from bloggers to shops to donators and words cannot express how incredibly honored we are to have been in your presence this past month.

In undertaking this project we ran into bumps, ranging from illness to job changes to other personal matters. It has been a huge learning experience for us and we thank you for working with us while we haphazardly hammered it out. It has been nothing short of amazing.
In terms of the donations the list is visible on the Passionately Pink site and each and every one is incredibly important, but we would be remiss if we did not mention one in particular. On the very last day as we were winding down and it looked like the goal would slip through our fingers a $500 donation from Beauty From the Earth Cosmetics came through. BFTE had only heard of the project that very day. We were absolutely overwhelmed by this and wanted to give a special thanks to BFTE for helping us to reach and surpass the goal. The donation was made in honor of/in memory of all BFTE customers and their family members who have had breast cancer.
There were two other notes left with donations as well and we’d very much like to share them with you now.
In memory of the Hayes family women who have passed on, and in honor of their husbands and children who keep on fighting.

For my Aunt Helen
We have received many messages of support from those that could not donate. To those, and to anyone reading, we say this: The best donation you can give is a few minutes of your time each month to do your breast exam. Until there is a cure the best defense is a good offense. Know your body. Check for irregularities. If you are unsure how ask your doctor. If you find anything get it checked immediately. If even one person (male or female) does their exam because of this project then we did what we set out to do.
