A couple of weeks ago, a wonderful woman passed away. This woman was a wife, a mother, a friend, and a giver. As someone said about her, “To know her, was to love her”; that really couldn’t be more true. She was fun loving, artistic, and she was one of those types of people you want to be around. She taught others by example how to be a good person, by being caring, supportive and giving. I was one of those people. Yes, I was raised in a home where I was taught all of those things, but she taught me that there are still people who care and give in the world among us, and they weren’t only in my family. Her and her family did, as a whole taught me that. Between them, and my own family, I am reminded daily, to not only possess those characteristics, but to allow them to show. Though she didn’t pass away from breast cancer, this is something she would have loved to stand behind. With that being said, we are excited to announce, the first ever Diesel Doll Gives Back 2017. And were hoping this is only the beginning for us to use Diesel Doll to give back in many ways.
For many years, I have wanted to do a breast cancer shirt, and the proceeds go to a program for breast cancer. I can’t recall the reasons, but this is the year that one of my personal goals and Diesel Doll goals is finally happening. While researching breast cancer charities, I came across The Pink Fund. After reading about them, reading testimonies from these breast cancer patients and their families, I knew this was it. Have you ever NOT gone to the doctor because you didn’t want to rack up a bill? Have you ever dreaded getting prescriptions filled, because you knew that might be money you didn’t have? Worse- have you or a family member ever lost part or all of your income because of cancer or an injury? I know I can say yes to a couple of these.
How can you help? A couple of ways, actually! First would be to purchase one of the products designed specifically for this project, ‘Save the Twins’, you can purchase it here. Second, would be to share this with your friends and family (share on instagram, facebook, email, etc), let them know you have purchased a shirt (or hoodie, or mug, or one of each!) for yourself. Third, we are making it possible to accept donations in one of two ways, while placing your shirt order you can “TIP” Diesel Doll- by doing that, your “TIP” is actually a donation straight to The Pink Fund! We are also setting it up, where you can donate money through our pay pal account.
How much are we hoping to donate? We have a number in mind, but we won’t say yet, just know, our ultimate goal is to be able to make a donation large enough to really make a difference in a family’s life! When our project is done, we will release our total for all to see!
We also wanted to give a HUGE thank you to one of our admins! Nikki (her store: Diesels and Daisies Tribe) took the time to design 'Save the Twins", and she really did amazing. We are so obsessed with it, and have heard such great feedback on it from our followers. We are so happy to have her working with us, and proud to have her as a member of our team!
