"Think Pink" with a hybrid freebie!

Happy Friday, Krystal fans!

Leigh here with a special edition hybrid project especially for the girls!

As women, we know how scary breast cancer can be. Early detection is the KEY TO SURVIVAL. My friend Karen sent me a link from the American Cancer Society dedicated solely to answering questions about Early Detection. Early detection saves thousands of lives each year.

I was trying to think of a way to promote breast self exams in my "every day" life. I really couldn't think of anything until I thought about my chocolate jar. Everyday, co-workers come to my room to grab chocolate out of my jar and never get more than just a piece of chocolate.

Now, they will get a piece of chocolate and a funny quote that just might help save their lives or the life of a loved one!




I created these Hershey Nugget wrappers, using the new collab from Krystal, MandaBean and Heather Roselli called "This One's For the Girls" (awesome, awesome kit, by the way).



Even though they are funny and may cause people to giggle, I'm hoping they'll get the point across. I will absolutely tell my friends to "check their breasts" when they grab a piece of chocolate!

If a man grabs one, hopefully he'll pass the message along to his wife, mother, sister or daughter!

I plan to leave this jar on my desk all year long and just re-print my nugget wraps. I think breast cancer awareness should be an ongoing process...not just for the month of October! BE PROACTIVE!!

You can have the nugget wrappers, too! Just click here to download.

Please link us up if you decide to make your own "Think Pink" jar! I'd love to see what you come up with!

Thanks for tuning in and I hope you have an awesome Halloween!

Leigh :)
