"We're so happy that we can take our Think Pink Sphynx items downtown to help raise awarness and funds, and to make people smile."
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 20, 2011
Everyday a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Both Ana and Debby Boe have had some of their close family and friends diagnosed with breast cancer over the past couple years and have been touched deeply by their courage, hope and fight to live.
"Walking in the upcoming Susan G. Komen 3 Day breast cancer walk is a way for us to give back, to walk in honor of all WOMEN past, present and future in hopes that a cure is found very soon." says Debby Boe.
The women have planned an event on October 22nd to help raise even more funds for the cause and their walk. With some determination they canvased the San Diego downtown area, and were able to secure the Bamboo Lounge for their event.
After securing different vendors to provide designer clothes, Miss Diva purses, Gold Canyon Candles and ZRII Health and Wellness to participate, they approached Air Feathers and were greeted with open arms.
"We are always happy to help at events like this," says Art Director Mandy Florez, a cancer survivor herself. "We're so happy that we can take our Think Pink Sphynx items downtown to help raise awarness and funds, and to make people smile."
Air Feathers "Think Pink Sphynx" Breast Cancer Awareness Kit has been doing well, and both Florez and Air Feathers founder Airie McCready are glad they placed an order for more product.
"This way," says McCready, "we can provide fundraising items right up until the last day of October, and even further if needed.
The Air Feathers team has chosen Airie's own sphynx cat, Daisy, to be their think pink mascot.
When asked why, Florez, smiles and replies, "Well, she's pink, she makes you think, and if you look closely at her picture, she's a great representative for Breast Cancer awareness."
Daisy herself was diagnosed with cancer at only 3 months old. The kitten, who weighed only 2.5 lbs did not have a great prognosis, and Airie was not sure Daisy would pull through. But with a lot of love, care, and effort, Daisy made it.
McCready and Florez acknowledge that Daisy does not compare to a Mother, Sister, Daughter, or anyone you may know that is fighting and surviving Cancer. But the little pink cat certainly is attention getting, and you can't help but smile when you see her on the cover of the new kit.
"Laughter is an immune system stimulant," says McCready, "and Daisy is about the cutest and funniest thing most people have ever seen!"
McCready believes that there's nobody better than her hairless cat to represent the new line of "AirMazing Fakes," a hybrid synthetic hair extension that's taking the industry by storm. The synthetic looks and acts much like real hair, at only a fraction of the cost. It's heat resistant up to 300 degrees and curls nicely with a moving tool like a flat iron. It comes in every color in the rainbow, but in the new kit stylists get an large amount of the pinks-solid light and hot pink, as well as "Grizzly" or striped light and hot pink that mimic the popular feather extension trend.
McCready also loves the fact that this kit does not lock stylists in to any particular charity or event-it leaves them free to raise funds however they see fit.
The new pink hair extensions, as well as a few items that have not hit the market yet will be available to purchase for a donation amount at the event.
Where: Bamboo Lounge, 1475 University Ave, San Diego, CA 92103
When: October 22nd, 2011
