Etsy Pink

Etsy Pink is a group on Etsy that donates a portion of their proceeds to breast cancer groups. Since Etsy is the largest marketplace for handmade goods, you can be assured that you will find something that will express your individuality, while at the same time, supporting a wonderful cause. These are just a few of the items that I found when I typed in "etsy pink breast cancer" into the etsy search engine.

This awesome tank (pictured above) by Cripple Creek is a cheery reminder to do self breast examinations. 75% of the $8.00 selling price will go directly to benefit a friend of hers who has breast cancer.

These charming little earrings by the Eclectic Slide feature wool felted beads, swarovski crystals and vintage flowers. ALL proceeds of these earrings will be donated to the "Relay for Life" team at Pottstown Memorial Medical Center.

For those of you who like to knit, this gorgeous merino wool yarn, handspun by Mud Creek, is perfect for creating some cuddly socks to warm your feet. ALL proceeds of this yarn will be donated to the Susan G. Komen For The Cure.

This fabulous Raspberry Swirl necklace by Meristem features individually wire wrapped pink beads centered by a pink chalcedony briolette on a really cool twisted wire mini sculpture. Made in honor of her stepmother, 30% of the $112 purchase price will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the cure foundation.

This chunky funky three strand necklace by Sandra Eileen featuring rose quartz, mother of pearl and amazonite makes a beautiful statement while supporting a great cause. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of this necklace ($148) will be donated efforts to help women feel beautiful while they are being treated for or recovering from breast cancer.

Thanks so much for including one of my Etsy Pink pieces in your Breast Cancer Awareness feature.

I have donated jewelry and time to help women who are dealing with breast cancer treatments and post surgery issues with the hope to help them "recapture" and "re-realize" their individual beauty. And the EtsyPink jewelry proceeds will go toward such a cause.
