Passion for Pink: Women Entrepreneurs Band Together to Support Breast Cancer Awareness, Research and Education

Passion for Pink: Women Entrepreneurs Band Together to Support Breast Cancer Awareness, Research and Education

Women entrepreneurs band together to support breast cancer awareness, research and education and raise funds through sales of exclusive jewelry designs.

SANTA ANA, CA (PRWEB) September 5, 2006

Wendy Navarro, owner of SaigeNicoles, has joined forces with five jewelry designers featured on her online store to raise funds for breast cancer awareness, research and education. As a part of this campaign entrepreneurs and jewelry designers Wendy Payne owner/designer, Glitzy Chicks; Lee Richards owner/designer, Dzignz on You; Barbara Bosco owner/designer, BBosco Designs, Piedra Stone owner/designer Piedra Stone Jewelry, and Allison Brooks owner/designer QueenBee Designs have each fashioned an exclusive piece of jewelry that signifies the courage, strength and beauty of women afflicted with this disease.

Calling the campaign “Passion for Pink” these and other products will be featured and available on saigenicoles. com where a portion of all proceeds will be donated to various foundations.

“I organized Passion for Pink for one simple reason, to raise money for breast cancer awareness and research. When I first pitched the idea to our jewelry designers I wasn’t sure how many would be interested. To my great pleasure all our designers enthusiastically agreed to join this campaign and design at least one piece of jewelry. We may not be the one to find the cure, but we can make a difference.”

When asked why she was committed to this cause designer Lee Richards responded, "As women we wear so many hats and we seem to worry about everyone else’s well being before our own. Consequently we tend to push our need and wants to the back burner. As a granddaughter who has seen two grandparents die of cancer within a few years of each other, I think the most important thing we can do for the people we care about is to take a proactive role in our own health and not wait until it is to late.”

You can support Passion for Pink and breast cancer awareness, research and education by purchasing these designs exclusively at saigenicoles. com beginning September 15, 2006.
