  1. What a nice giveaway.

    Having friends and family who have been affected by breast cancer I have also tried to bring awareness. I have sent the following to my network:

    Take a proactive stance against breast cancer and support the Passion Parties mission of women helping women. Here's how:

    1. Be an advocate of your breast health.

    Practice monthly self-examinations, and get regular mammograms as instructed by your physician. Make sure to seek medical advice regarding your questions and concerns. Encourage others to take control of their breast health, all year long and at your Passion Party!

    2. Book a Pink Passion Party in October! (Virtual, In-Home, Office, etc.)

    Party will be Breast Cancer Awareness themed. You, as a hostess, can incorporate pink details, such as a pink dress code, serving pink refreshments, and more. Get creative but I have ideas I can suggest if you like.

    I will play a game and showcase products that are breast-related and pink. The presentation will be fun and educational, discussing the importance of self-exams, and debunking common myths. Discounts and special packages will be created just for your party guest. Also, when you and guest purchase The Passion Parties Guide to Great Sex sales benefit the Passion Parties Charitable Foundation, which supports a number of organizations, including those that assist women affected by breast cancer.

    Weekend party dates book fast, so book yours today. Happy hour weekdays and Sunday brunch are also a good day for your Pink Party.

    3. Participate in my Team: Passion Parties by Carline on Susan G. Komen Passionately Pink for the Cure.

    Join in the fight against breast cancer through the most successful charity event ever created. There are a variety of events all over the country.

    Join my team and/or make a donation:
