I just got home from the kick-off event for the Relay For Life that I’m participating in this coming August. I’m excited to be a team captain once again and share my love for Relay as my Jaycee chapter here in Minnesota Relays for the first time. We’ve even held our first fundraiser, which was a smashing success!
I ventured out to Etsy and there are a number of handmade shops offering goods for sale for which a percentage of the proceeds will benefit Relay For Life & the American Cancer Society. Addicted Crafter has some beautiful handmade earrings to offer. They’re studs featuring a small pearl bead which are then wrapped with silver toned wire. There’s several different colors to choose from even and at only $6 a pair, you can purchase a few pairs! And, the best part is that 50% of the proceeds from these earrings will go directly to the American Cancer Society!
Since Kim has added her unique Relay For Life shooter on the Whiff and Sniff site, and I have registered my Relay For Life team with our local Relay, I ventured out to Etsy to see what shops are offering items to raise money for cancer awareness and the fight against cancer.
While Four Purls is a small Etsy shop, this particular item stood out to me the most in my Relay For Life search on Etsy. It’s a bracelet that is hand knit using a hemp string and purple beading. It’s so unique and eye catching – and all of the proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society. Grab it now & order one for your Relay walking buddy and you’ll be walkin’ in style!
I also like the Relay For Life HOPE magnets in Tabasc1′s shop. They’re glass marbles made into magnets! These carry the theme from the 2009 Relay For Life: Celebrating Hope. At just $1 each, you could get one for each of your Relay teammates as a thank you for participating.
If you haven’t participated in a Relay event, I encourage you to do so…especially if you know someone that is fighting cancer or has lost their battle to cancer. I’ve set my fundraising goal and so can you!
