You might have noticed a bit of a color change around here. I decided to go Pink for October. Breast Cancer awareness is important to me as well as to Allison. We decided to get out blogs into a pink theme for the month of October. I learned about this project through Joana of Nanashi-Inc.net. So if you want to show your support for Breast Cancer Awareness for the month of October set your theme to Pink. It was easy to do for my Blogger blogs but I’ve made so many edits to this one that I changed around some colors.

Even though it is Breast Cancer awareness month, I have a project of my own to help raise money for a family whose whole lives has been affected by Cancer. I created a 2008 Photo-A-Day Calendar and I am giving 2/3 of the profits to the Machinski Family. My goal is to sell 100 calendars before November 24th and raise $200.00 to give to the Machinski family. Becky Machinski was a classmate of mine in High School and both she and her husband have both battled Cancer. Becky’s Cancer is gone but her husband Mike is still battling Cancer and it has depleted their savings. I can’t imagine how tough this has been for them but they are a strong couple with three beautiful little girls. You can see the love that they have for each other and they are working very hard to stay positive and to stay financially above water. So during the month of October while you go Pink think about maybe helping donate to the Machinskis by buying a 2008 Photo-A-Day calendar or donating directly through my PayPal donation button specifically created for the money I am donating to the Machinskis.

    I’m glad you decided to go pink as well! =^_^= I’m sure though that by the end of October I’m going to be going ‘grr…pink!’ though. But it’s for a good cause so I’ll do it gladly. :)

    I think it’s great that you’re trying to help that family out, and what an ingenious way to do it too. After I get some bills squared away I’ll have to return to this page.

    I figured that it was time for a little change and will give me a month to tweak a few things. The easies thing to change in all of this was Blog Rush because of their flavors. That was so simple.
