Thinking Pink Can Save Lives

It's one of the oldest known forms of cancer and the second most common form of cancer in the world (more than 10% of all cases). It ranks fifth amongst all cancers in deaths. While it is 100 times less prevalent in men, it knows no gender. Breast Cancer is a devastating illness that takes lives and destroys spirits.

It doesn't have to be this way. Time, money and effort can go a long way in making strides against diseases like Breast Cancer. The fight against breast cancer is a cause that has struck Bill and Carolyn as being an important piece of activism for Relios. So Carolyn and Bill are making a statement about our commitment to doing good in the world.
For the fourth consecutive year, Carolyn is participating in the Breast Cancer 3-Day(Philadelphia -- October 17-19, 2008). This 60-mile walk through the City of Brotherly Love, is a march of hope and determination aimed at raising funds for the National Philanthropic Trust and Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Donations and the teams entry fees all go to the benefit of these two crucial organizations. Carolyn and her friends have come together to form Elise's Army, a team named in honor of their late friend who survived breast cancer at an early age and participated in the walk the last three years. To raise money, Elise's Army, will be selling a natural pink rhodonite and sterling silver necklace made and donated by Relios Jewelry. Every cent of the purchase goes towards the eradication of breast cancer.

Along with the rhodonite necklace, Relios Jewelry will also be donating 10% of our sales of pink jewelry during the Month of October to Elise's Army. If that isn't awesome enough, Relios is donating $25,000 worth of jewelry to QVC UK for their Breast Cancer Care Fashion Show.

Be on the lookout for Carolyn's recap of the walk and the travails of living in a pink tent city for two nights! Meanwhile, head over to the Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness special section of the Relios Jewelry website and make a difference for women (and men!) the world over.
