My daughter Krissy and I invite you to learn more about a special cause and opportunity...
As someone who knows just how powerful our mom community can be, I'm asking you to help in spreading the word about a movement that is designed especially to celebrate the bond between mothers and daughters and create a cure for a disease that I know has impacted many of us personally. I'm proud to support the She Colors My Day project and I hope you'll join me in spreading the word about this important initiative.
The She Colors My Day project began when a mother named Annette, dying of breast cancer, created a keepsake for the four daughters she was preparing to leave behind. Annette sent a c.d. of she and her daughters singing to her many friends and family. Unbeknown to Annette, her act of love would be the inspiration for her friend, Cristina Carlino, founder of Project Miracle, to ignite the She Colors My Day movement - a celebration of the never-ending bonds of mothers and daughters. The now worldwide She Colors My Day movement embarks upon a global journey to create for a cure. Inspired by a mother's infinite love, this ever widening circle of caring will benefit the Susan G. Komen for a Cure ® Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's /Women's Cancer Research Group biomarker project. Hear the story in Cristina's own words here.
So how can you get involved?
* Color With Us- We can start by taking the first steps to coloring someone else's day through a platform we all know well- Facebook. The She Colors My Day pink crayon is a Facebook application created to be shared with those we love. The pink crayon can be virtually passed around on Facebook so we can all help to create for a cure.
* Sing Along- The "She Colors My Day" song co-written by Cristina Carlino and Stuart Mathis for Cristina's daughter has been recorded by multi-Grammy award winner, Amy Grant. Download the "She Colors My Day Song" and video and help to support this organization. A portion of net proceeds from the song supports the She Colors My Day project, benefiting Susan G. Komen for a Cure ® Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's/Women's Cancer Research Group.
* Spread the Word- The ultimate goal of the "She Colors My Day" project is to support mothers and daughters and create a cure. If you're inspired by this project, please help us share the love by publishing a post on your blog this week that celebrates the special mother/daughter relationships in your life.
MomSelect will also be holding a Twitter discussion on May 10th and we'd love for you to attend. We would like to urge you to chime in, tell your story, and offer support or inspiration. And if you 'create' or are in the process of expressing your voice through art (painting, sketching, singing- anything) please share* your creations with us so we can inspire others to make a difference and color someone's day who is in need. Details to come.
