Breast Cancer has affected several people in my family as well as numerous women in my circle of friends. I feel passionately about getting your mammograms and completing your self exams every month. Thanks to the Susan G. Komen fund for helping many women fight breast cancer.
So, thanks to Energizer, I have been given A Keep Going journal to giveaway to one of you. The journal is pink and grey and has a magnetic flap to close it. Inside there is a 2010 calendar, lined pages for writing, and quotes throughout the pages. One of my favorites from the book is...
"May you live all the days of your life." by Jonathan Swift Then there is an attached pink ribbon bookmark to mark your pages. This is a great journal to keep for yourself or give to someone you know who is struggling with breast cancer. All you have to do is leave me a comment with an email address. The contest ends on Monday, October 26th at 11:59 PM. I will choose the winner with Random.org on Tuesday, October 27th, 2009.
Disclosure: Energizer sent me 2 journals at no cost to promote to my readers. I did not receive any payment for this promotion.
