Selling this image yesterday helped us to contribute to a good cause
Yesterday was the "Race for the Cure" here in Portland, which raises money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, a leader in the fight against breast cancer. The event route passed right by where we were selling our photography, so we saw the some 45,000 people who flooded downtown with the color pink! It was a pretty emotional sight, reading the participants' messages written on their race number cards; each said, "I'm racing for. . ." and then the participant wrote things like "My Mom" or "My Sister" or "In Memory of so and so". Think about it. . .everyone knows someone who has been affected by this disease.
We decided that we'd donate 10% of what we made yesterday to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. We didn't have the greatest day ever, but we nonetheless just sent out a check and, if you're reading this and have a few bucks to spare for a good cause, you should, too! Here's a link to the info you need: Komen for the Cure donation info.
