If you’ve been around here in past Septembers, you know that for two years going, we’ve marked Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month at Bleeding Espresso — and this year is no different.
Well, it’s a little different because this year I’ve lined up some of the fabulous jewelry designers I’ve mentioned in the past (5 Ways to Raise Ovarian Cancer Awareness Through Jewelry) for giveaways to encourage you to go to their sites, have a look around, and perhaps purchase an item whose proceeds go to various ovarian cancer awareness funds.
Ovarian cancer is often called the “silent killer,” because many of its symptoms can be mistaken for minor illnesses. But as women, it is up to us to let our doctors know when something just isn’t right, so please read up on the signs & symptoms of ovarian cancer, and don’t be afraid to speak up — and men, please forward this information to the women you love.
Today I’m proud to welcome Angela Moore and her gorgeous jewelry collection, which includes this brand new ovarian cancer awareness bracelet; purchases from this collection donate 15% back to the OCNA (Ovarian Cancer National Alliance).
These are brand new (released on September 1) and there is a limited number available; this bracelet retails for $60. This new collection also includes a necklace, earrings, and my personal favorite, pendant. Prices start at $30.
Now, turning to the bracelet for the giveaway, the white bracelet with teal ribbons, which retails for $50:
This original Ovarian Cancer Awareness collection, by the way, is available in several pieces, including bracelet, necklace, earrings, pendant, watch, and hair ties; prices range from $12 and up. Fifteen percent of this collection is donated to the OCRF (Ovarian Cancer Research Fund).
To enter for your chance to win the original Ovarian Cancer Awareness bracelet (white with teal ribbons pictured above, $50 value), visit the Angela Moore website then come back here and leave a comment with your favorite piece of jewelry *outside* of the Ovarian Cancer Awareness Collection.
For an extra entry, you can “like” Angela Moore on Facebook and/or and follow @ArtToWear on Twitter, and then come back here and tell me you’ve done so in a separate comment. You may both “like” and follow for a total of three possible entries, but the comment regarding your favorite piece of jewelry is the main entry and mandatory before you can gain extra entries.
All entries must be submitted by 11:59 p.m. CET Sunday, September 12, 2010; this drawing is open internationally. The winner will be chosen randomly.
As in previous years, you can also donate through my FirstGiving page to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund; stay tuned for lots more ways you can increase ovarian cancer awareness around you, and please spread the word about what’s going on at Bleeding Espresso here this month!
