Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) October 04, 2011
In an effort to battle the emotional effects breast cancer has on children (and brighten the day of a child who is fighting breast cancer alongside a loved one), Crorey Creations, the Choose Friendship Co., creator of the popular products My Friendship Bracelet Maker and My Ribbon Barrette Maker, is holding its annual Pink & White, Kids Join the Fight! Campaign in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
National Breast Cancer Awareness Month is an important time to raise awareness and show our support to patients and their loved ones. Although there are numerous programs that focus on patient recovery, research, awareness and the eradication of the disease, there are not many campaigns that focus on the emotional effects this disease has on children. Now, with Crorey Creations, the Choose Friendship Co.’s Pink & White, Kids Join the Fight! Campaign, this is no longer the case.
“We all know a loved one that is or has battled breast cancer. And, while we offer our love and support, oftentimes we feel helpless as we stand by the sidelines, watching the physical and emotional toll this disease has on its victims and their family members,” says Julie Crorey, daughter of David Crorey, inventor of My Friendship Bracelet Maker and My Ribbon Barrette Maker. “While there are many wonderful campaigns that focus on patient recovery, research, awareness and eradication of the disease, there are not many that solely focus on the emotional effects breast cancer has on its younger victims. Our campaign does just that, moving us past the sidelines, and hopefully brightening the day for children battling alongside a loved one.”
Through its Campaign, Crorey Creations, the Choose Friendship Co., will donate $1 from every one of their products purchased by specialty retailers during the month of October, up to $10,000. Additionally, they are committed sponsors for their local American Cancer Society Chapter’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer initiative, partnering together in the mission to create a world with less breast cancer and more birthdays.
Even more exciting is the Campaign’s friendship bracelet initiative, where the company will be collecting thousands of pink and white friendship bracelets and distributing them to friends across the nation. This initiative provides a fun way for kids to get involved in the fight, and it also shows these children who are battling breast cancer alongside a loved one that they are not alone. Whenever a child sees another child wearing a pink and white friendship bracelet, they’ll know that they belong to a very special group that is fighting together against this illness. Pink and white friendship bracelets can be sent to Crorey Creations, P.O. Box 380482, Clinton Township, Michigan 48038.
Crorey Creations, the Choose Friendship Co., is also partnering with The DMC Corporation Prism Threads to hold the first live My Friendship Bracelet Maker Workshop on Saturday, October 15th. Facebook fans will join in the fun and submit a pattern using pink and white threads in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The winner of the best pattern will join the live workshop as an honorary virtual guest and both they and one winner from the workshop will receive the Ultimate Friendship Bracelet Prize Package, consisting of threads from The DMC Corporation Prism Threads, My Friendship Bracelet Maker, My Friendship Bracelet Maker Clip Board and a $250 Visa gift card to use at their favorite craft store.
