Zipper Brooches for Breast Cancer Research

Friday, February 10, 2012

News of breast cancer sent shock waves through our family last week, when a family member was diagnosed. Every year, thousands of people are affected by breast cancer, battling with chemotherapy, surgery, and loss of life to fight this terrible disease.

In every effort to help in this situation the best way I know how, I have sourced unwanted and second-hand pink zippers, to create some pink zipper flower brooches, to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness.

Readers, if you would like to purchase a pink zipper flower brooch/hair clip (2 in 1) they are $14 incl. postage (national and international), and I will be donating all profits to the National Breast Cancer Foundation; the leading community-funded organisation in Australia raising money for research into the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer.

They'd make a great last minute Valentines gift! Click on the link below where you can buy a brooch online.
Additionally, for all op shoppers reading this, if you happen to find second-hand pink zippers (preferably with metal teeth) on your thrifty journeys, and would like to send them my way, that would be really great. I'm holding a market stall at Southside Market in St Kilda at the end of April where I hope to sell more.

Let us all hope we can fight this terrible disease, that affects so many people all over the world, every single day.

Recycled Fashion Finds will be back next week

PS, I bought the shoes!
