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.

This makes me proud to be a PR member and a part of the book as well. I'm also thrilled on how well the book must be selling. Good news all around.
