FREE Craft Ideas & A Moving Animated Card Build Breast Cancer Awareness During October


I don't think I've ever seen so much pink as there has been this October to spotlight Breast Cancer Awareness Month. 

Many of us have been touched directly by the disease within our own families or at least know someone who has been affected by this killer.  In fact, according to the American Cancer Society (ACS), an estimated 192,370 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed among women in the United States this year.  

Here's a fact that really surprised me that I didn't know until I wrote this post.  Approximately 1,910 of the new cases are expected to present themselves in MEN this year.  Simply put, Breast Cancer sadly has an impact on us all.  Let's do all we can to expedite a Cure!  More FAQs on Breast Cancer here

In the hope of spreading even more awareness, here are MommyBlogExpert's picks for the best FREE animated ecard and craft ideas online with Breast Cancer themes.  Immediately below you'll see that Ojolie is offering a complimentary animated card in honor of Breast Cancer Month.  You'll also see  some beautiful ideas for crafts you can make either for yourself, in memory of someone you love, or as a gift for someone that is currently battling this deadly disease.  There's also a wonderful down loadable Breast Cancer-themed gift tag you can print out at no charge.
First off, most definitely stop by Ojolie.com so you can send this complimentary, absolutely gorgeous FREE Chicka animated ecard that is all about helping to spread the word about Breast Cancer.  It can be customized with any message you choose, so consider using this for a variety of occasions.  According to Frederikek, the ecard 's designer, "I wanted to keep the story light and entertaining, despite the serious topic, but of course also sincere.   I don't particularly worry about what makes something art -- to me it is simply making a difference, no matter how big or small, to another human being."   Wouldn't you agree that this card brings across that sentiment beautifully?  View and send this Ojolie original ecard  here

Up next from Kaye Wood comes the stunning pieced and quilted Breast Cancer Pillow you see pictured at the top of this post.  Find the directions and free pattern to make this lovely item here
