Watch Us Grow

Isn't that the saying when a business expands? Pink for Life is growing and I'm loving it! We now officially have seven members with one more to join soon. I am so excited to see what this journey has in store for all of us.

If you are in Huntsville or surrounding area, please visit these restaurants/locations who are graciously supporting Pink for Life.

If you aren't following us on facebook, what are you waiting for? We list all of our events and happenings along with any other exciting news in the breast cancer world.

Just an update on my personal donation page. I am at 79% of meeting the $2300 minimum and 73% of meeting my goal of $2500. I think it's time to increase my goal.

How many fundraisers does it take to drive a team captain batty?

Where do I begin? Honestly, I don't know. I have so many things going on and I MUST gain control before it's too late. I have several fundraisers for myself and the team has several as well. Add a birthday party in the mix and I'm ready for Calgon!

Individual fundraisers:
  • will donate 10% of your purchase (before shipping) to Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure on my behalf. You must type "Klueger" in the comments section at checkout.
  • has provided beautiful breast cancer awareness bracelets for me to sell.
  • 2010-2011 breast cancer awareness planners
  • Breast cancer awareness checkbook covers
  • Baking and selling items at work
  • Online Pampered Chef party scheduled for May

  • Penny Wars at the elementary school (April 26 - May 14)
  • Four car washes (May, June, July, August)

Our team is expanding thanks to some encouraging/inspiring teammates. Keep up the great work ladies.

Pink for Life Update

Team Pink for Life is on track with training and fundraising. We are at 27% of our goal as a team and I am at 57% of meeting my goal. We had to walk the mall this morning as a strong thunderstorm was passing through. Our local mall opens early for mall walkers and it was actually quite nice. It will definitely be our backup for bad weather conditions and also those HOT days of summer when air conditioning is a necessity. We will be walking in October so we won't need to train for the heat.

We have several fundraisers in mind but nothing set in stone except for our upcoming Family Fun Walk on April 18. I don't know about the other 3-Day walkers, but since I registered all I think about is ways to raise money. I'm constantly checking the message boards or reading blogs on how others have been successful with their fundraisers and thinking how we can make it happen for our team.

This week I partnered with and they will donate 10% of your purchase (before shipping) to Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure on my behalf. Please check out all their must-have cute items for upcoming birthday, Mother's Day and graduation gifts.

I received an email this morning about being a training walk leader. I have to attend a conference call on April 12. As a training walk leader, I will also be part of the safety crew for the 3-Day event. Looking forward to it!

Be sure to designate a portion of your tax return to donate on my behalf to Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure. I will be forever grateful! You can donate securely online here. No amount is too little or too much! Every dollar helps us get closer to finding a cure.
