Save the Date for "Link Up For Pink"

Most of us know who has had to deal with this disease. My friend Yolie’s  Mother-In-Law, Pat is currently fighting breast cancer. So we, Yolie, Gaby and I, thought it would be a good idea to do our part to raise awareness by hosting the “Link Up For Pink”. It will be held on October 1st through the 14th on our blogs. Every project will be pink themed and there will be lots of opportunities for prizes. More details will be available as the day approaches.
Please help us spread the word by grabbing the code and displaying the button on your sidebar. So please save the date and remember to get your mammograms.
