Passionately Pink Apron Swap
I think it’s safe to say that almost EVERYONE knows somebody who’s had breast cancer – sometimes it’s a co-worker or a best friend, sometimes it’s a close loved one, and sometimes it’s personal. That said, WE as women can help in this fight against breast cancer and raise funds for breast cancer research while encouraging and uplifting each other. And, there’s no better time than October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

So, I told you our latest club swap has a twist. Here it is: you will make TWO Passionately Pink aprons in this swap – one for your assigned partner and will include at least $15 worth of pink goodies to make a fun package; the second apron is for you to somehow leverage for The Cause. For example, my (Shawnee’s) second apron is being given to my friend who’s a breast cancer survivor. Kristi is collecting donations for her Race for the Cure and will put all her donors names into a drawing with one lucky winner receives my Zebra and Hot Pink apron. The possibilities are endless.
You could:
• donate your apron to a local clinic to be given to a woman who needs a smile;
• wrap it around a casserole and deliver your apron to someone you know is going through
• auction it off on your website to raise funds to donate toward research;
• make it in memory of someone and give it to her family as a cherished keepsake;
• ????

I have formed a team at the Susan G Komen’s Passionately Pink site for us to track our progress; once you’ve signed up for this swap, also join my team so we can track funds raised in this swap. And, at the end, we want to hear your stories of Apron Number Two and see pictures!!

Once again we have an on-line registration form and participation fee. Half of the fees will be donated to Breast Cancer research, half will be held for prizes and angel packages. To sign up, go to the side bar and choose to join Team Shawnee or Team Lucy (teams make no difference in swap partners, just divides up the work for us). Clicking on the Team Button will take you to the pay pal page where you will pay your swap fee of $10. After paying the fee, you will then be taken to the swap registration form. Fill that out and you will start getting emails about the swap and what to do from there. If you have something you'd like to donate as a prize (preferably pink or breast cancer logo'd), then your registration fee is only $8.

This cause is so close to our hearts. PLEASE, grab an image and post about this swap on your blogs, tweet your little hearts out, call your buddies .... let’s set a record with the number of participants this time around!! If you have any questions, please let either Lucy or Shawnee know right away!


  1. As a new survivor (diagnosed and surgery this year) I'm definitely in!! I'll blog about it and see if I can tie it in to my cousin's walking team in Miami. We may as well make this a family/national thing!

  2. What a fabulous idea! I'm just headed into my busy season though (aprons! aprons! more aprons!), so I just can't do it. I think I can come up with something cute for a prize though, so I'll contact you offline.

    I can't let this one go by without doing something!!!
