Earlier this year, one of our dearest family friends was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
When things like this happen to someone you love, you can’t help but feel like you need to do something. Something to help them, or their family. We have sent gift cards to help with grocery shopping, sent sympathy cards, even got her some pretty pajamas to wear during recovery of a double mastectomy.
But still, there is something more I needed to do. But I wasn’t sure what.
Cari is not only our family friend, she is the speech therapist of my two young children. She provides an invaluable service to my children and she really is an angel in disguise.
October was Breast Cancer Awareness month, a month of doing what we can to help raise money for Breast Cancer research and showing our support to those who are effected.
I visited Shari’s Berries’ website in search of something sweet to send her during the month of October. Flowers, chocolate covered berries, or even a gift basket. There were so many great options to choose from and I just couldn’t decide.
Then I found it..
An entire section dedicated to “Pink Ribbon Sweets”. Cookies, flowers and berries that were all decorated in some way to show support for Breast Cancer.
I selected the Pink Ribbon Promise Wreath to help bring joy to Cari’s home. To give her a constant reminder that she is not in this fight alone.
This beautiful wreath was wrapped in a lush collection of pink fairy roses, peonies, pepper berries set to hydrangeas, and bay laurel.
The real difference came when I saw that Sheri’s Berries would donate 10% of the purchase of a Pink Ribbon Promise Wreath to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help fund breast cancer research.
The Pink Ribbon Promise Wreath is made with preserved flowers, was shipped so delicately in a special box with ties, and was the perfect way to make Cari’s day.
