I am so pleased to share that I just wrote my 3rd check to National Breast Cancer Foundation. As many of you know 100% of the royalty I receive from the sale of our book, 1,000 clever sewing shortcuts and tips is donated to this organization.



Read more about this project here and here

So far we've donated $3424.45 to National Breast Cancer Foundation and it makes me very happy to share this with you.

Thank you for supporting me in this!

Deepika, that's great! And, I had no idea. I just double checked the listing I saw on Amazon. I wonder if there is anyway to get this information about the donations in the description of the book?

So, since I didn't know before, Wow, I'm blown away, that is fantastic and I appreciate all the folks you are helping.

Some of the same research that goes into breast cancer research helped someone very dear to me conquer a rare autoimmune disease. And some of the same research that goes into breast cancer research helped him with lessening his reaction to treatment.

Thank you for your help.
