Womentorz Members Give Back

I'm so proud to be associated with not only some of the most talented, creative and entrepreneurial women I've ever met, but also the most giving!!!  Many of the Womentorz members give a percentage of their sales back to worthwhile charities.

Lizzie Lou Shoes for the Cure
Sheena Edwards, the creator of Lizzie Lou Shoes, has a new flip flop design that's not only providing high style, but also the fight against breast cancer.  You can feel good about purchasing such a work of art for your feet knowing that a percentage supports CTRC at the UT Health Science Center  in San Antonio, TX  http://www.ctrc.net/.

The Goddess of Hope
Marianne Impal, the creator of The Goddess Box celebrating the gift of young girls becoming women, has also created The Goddess of Hope.  A feminine disease deserves a feminine gift~ The Goddess Of Hope is a gift box dedicated to Women with Breast Cancer.  Inside this gift holds well thought out treasures to help nurture the feminine from within.  All proceeds donated and will be split amongst two local hospitals/researchers: The Healing Consciousness Foundation and Fox Chase Cancer Center.  For more information visit: http://www.raecole.com/Goddess_of_Hope.html

The National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation
Linda Lewis, the inventor of The Breast Chek Kit, is also the founder of a non-profit organization called NABCAF-The National Breast Cancer Awareness Foundation, Inc. that provides free mammogram's and other health screenings completely FREE to uninsured and under-insured women annually.  www.nabcaf.org

An annual event, Our Passionate About Pink Community Health & Wellness Expo is dependent on the donations and contributions of our sponsors, both big and small. See some of the pictures from this event here...http://bit.ly/buBdKA

While the mammogram's and all the services are free to the women, NABCAF has to pay the hospital for the mobile unit, etc. at an average cost of $135 per woman. While they raised funds last year, her company still had to provide additional funds because of the enormous amount of women that showed up!! Linda is very proud to know that she is providing such a life saving service to women who normally wouldn't have this opportunity.   

They also give a portion of sales of the Breast Chek Kit   to various breast cancer research organizations.
