SHEROS are We

It has been a long time since I've posted here. 
For that I apologize.
So much has happened in the time that I've been gone.
I'm excited to be back and will share with you in another post the happenings in my  absence.
Today is an amazing day solely because of the fact that -
We Are Doing It!!!
This year I decided to do something different as I'm no longer able to participate in raising awareness by walking.  This year I've started a Breast Cancer Project with the sole purpose to provide smiles for survivors and let them know people care.
As I work on this project, I've met some amazing individuals that have shown so much compassion by giving and sharing their own stories.

I wanted to give individuals an opportunity to donate a tangible item to those on this journey and help organizations create smiles for it's recipients.  Hence the Care Kit.
These gifts are multi-functional as they contain items that can be used and once finished the pouf can still be used.  By adding a personal note, it makes the gift more personable.  The recipient knows that it came from someone that cared enough to give them a smile and a little bit of Hope.  I think knowing that an unknown person cared enough to show a bit of compassion will have more an impact.
I set a target of getting 50 Care Kits donated and we are well on the way to meeting this target!
When I say I'm excited that is actually an understatement. I'm blown away daily by the response to it.
Although the goal hasn't been reached yet, we're not far off.
Those of you that know me, know that I acknowledge the month for what it is. I make it a priority to  share awareness everyday
Be strong
Be fearless
Be kind
Be compassionate
Be a friend
Get your mammogram and encourage a friend to do hers as well.

Glad to be back!

If you want to join this project, please do.  Care Kit

Courage

Courage is what it takes to accept what we can not change. 
HOPE is what we have to get us through it. 
Support is what helps us to make it.
I'm asking you for each of these.

The Path

There are many people in this world that are in need and many live in the community. Some are seen and many others aren’t because they are not the people that you expect to be in need. Perception is the leading factor of the seen and unseen individuals that are in need the most. Doing what you are led and not want you want can be very daunting, overwhelming, emotional, misguided, ill-spoken and lonely. It takes a strong person to persevere and to stay the path.
Today I watch a show/documentary called “The Starfish Throwers", and it led me to follow what is in my heart and on my mind constantly. It affirmed to me that I’m doing what I’m supposed to be doing in this life, right now and it’s okay. Far too often you want to have supporters in your corner believing in you and cheering you on to success. Sadly, many don’t want that for you as they don’t have it for themselves. It is disheartening that you have to stand strong in what you want to do. Knowing all to well that the impact of human kindness towards another in any small way is far greater than disappointment you feel when you realize how alone you truly are. I admit it isn’t easy and every day is a challenge of sorts, where is the money coming from, the energy, the items, the much needed support, the courage to ask, the ability to continue to swallow the Nos, the items that are needed, this is what no one thinks of when in the midst of it all. I was touched to view all these people young and old doing what they have been led to do. They have not been deterred no matter has been placed before them. Each of them overcame life’s obstacles to move forward to continue to make an impact in the lives of others. I commend each of them as they have made a HUGE impact in the community near and those afar.
Compassion and humane acts are actions that are inspired by love not notoriety. Your acknowledgement comes in the form of a smile, a hug and sometimes a Thank you. At the end of the day that is all that is needed if anything at all. Your hope is that is has a ripple effect and many can reap the benefits of compassionate acts.
I’m honored to be on this path and knowing that I am impacting the lives of others. To those that are on a compassion and humane act, I commend and Thank you all for doing what you do to make an impact in the lives of your fellow humans.
Stay the path and know that your work is not in vain or in isolation.

Still Time!

This isn't over yet, we're getting closer but there is still work to be done. 
Take part in something that is amazingly kind hearted in the life of another. 



Thank you in advance for helping to make this a reality.

An Act of Kindness!

I was inspired and want to continue to carry it forward.  Walking is the small part of the journey, enduring the ride is the hardest part. An #actofkindness is the least we can do.  Joining together as a strong community will make an impact.  Using the platform that is available to me and making it work.  I'm asking you, to join me!

I can only ask

Be part of the change that makes an impact in the lives of many.
Each year that I've been part of this journey, marks the age of my children, the numerous women diagnosed and those that both survived and succumbed .  We have the ability to change it all!
