Post Pink: DVDs for the Cure

Last month when Patricia of Mrs. Blandings blog contacted myself and some other woman and asked us to "post pink" on October 1st I responded with enthusiasm and told her I would be happy to participate. I don't know how many of your lives have been touched by breast cancer. For me personally, my great-grandmother passed away as a result of this disease. So when Patricia asked, I immediately responded "YES"!

Watching a movie may be good for your health. To mark National Breast Cancer Awareness Month this October, 20th Century Fox and MGM Home Entertainment have promised to donate a minimum of $250,000 to Komen from the sale of specially packaged "chick flick" movies in a DVD sleeve with a pink border.

Kate, watching movies has always been an enjoyable family past time. Right after Thanksgiving dinner we all go into the Great room with our desserts in hand and put in a good movie. I can't wait to watch "In Her Shoes" with my Mother and her sisters, I loved this movie, we're sure to have a blast! DVDs for the cure is a good way to give to a cause that is so near and dear to our hearts.
