I could not let another month go by (sorry September) without taking some time to give an STC update. As you will see throughout this post, my card making ramped up this month as well. We have been so busy that time has flown by...(cue flying witch :)
While September was "prep month", October watched it all happen.... Breast Cancer Awareness events, new service opportunities, and lots of cards and crafty Halloween Haunts. So grab that pumpkin spiced latte and enjoy the update....
Women's Wellness Day
This is an annual free event sponsored by the Madison County Breast Cancer Survivors Group is a highlight for many women. Stamp to Cope uses this day to provide information, give tote bags to survivors, and donate handmade cards for door prizes. The day began with continental breakfast, vendor tables, and great fellowship. Midway, medical professional that are experts on women's health concerns presented the most current trends in the field. A full lunch is provided along with door prizes throughout the day. The day ends with a fabulous fashion show where all the models are breast cancer survivors. I was lucky enough to model fashions from CATOs! Yes, I ended up buying my outfit :)
STC participated as a collection station for Hope Scarves and we provided 27 scarves toward this wonderful sister organization. The ability to share a personal story with each scarf also gave STC to share our message with survivors too.
Paint the Town Pink
One of STC's service areas is Richmond, KY and we were honored to join them in celebrating the 2015 Paint the Town Pink event. It is amazing at the behind the scenes work that is required for such a growing event!
During the month of October, I became a member of the Business Babes as an outreach, publicity, and support effort for STC and breast cancer survivors. The response of these fabulous women to our mission and vision has been overwhelming and I look forward to making deeper connections into our service area with their support.
We have a full schedule for November as STC participates in Pink Night at the local high school, conducts a craft/card making day at an elementary school, and has spotlight name recognition through non-profit supports.
Before I sign off, I wanted to give a huge shout out to the Madison Southern High School Marching Band as they head to State Semi-finals tomorrow! Thanks everyone for your continued love and support and I wish all a very Happy Halloween!!!!!!!
