we are the makers of pearls...

posted on: 10.23.2012

These little hands of mine seem so painfully small sometimes.  

And when I think of cancer and of the women and men and children who so bravely stare down that terrible disease, well, it becomes so plainly clear that these little hands, well, they must be put to good use doing something, anything...  

And so on October eleventh "We Are The Makers of Pearls":  A Campaign Celebrating The Strength of Women was launched.   For every scarf purchased from our little shop here, from October eleventh to November eleventh, a cowl neck scarf featuring a freshwater pearl dangle will be given to a woman who battles cancer at The Queen's Medical Center in Honolulu.  

It's not much, I know.  
It's nothing really at all.  But together maybe our hands, yours and mine, well, just maybe they can mean the difference between another lonely day in the midst of a painfully long battle and the sense that in some small way a woman, (a mother, daughter, sister, friend...), fighting cancer does not stand alone before that fearsome foe.

You don't have to buy a scarf to be a part of this campaign.  

You can support us and stay up to date on our facebook page here.  You can enter our contests both here and on fb and help spread the word.  You can offer up a prayer or send good energy in our direction as we journey through the days of this campaign.

Thank you for being on this journey with me.  
And please know that all of this means the big huge world to me and to those whose lives will be touched.

live sweet,

    By the way, my sister lives just outside of Honolulu! And she's studying nursing. I know she does shifts at a hospital now, but I'm not sure which one. I'll have to find out if it's the same one you're sending these scarves to!
