Show Us You Care By What You Wear

What better way to inspire people to get involved and bring awareness than to offer gifts!  I had posted a post similar to this one a few days ago but deleted it because I really wrote it on impulse and wanted to put some more thought into it.  I think I have it just right now. 

Society has come to know the pink ribbon as Breat Cancer, red as Aids, yellow as Military and the puzzle is Autism so we need to do everything we can to add Turquoise to that list as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia Awareness.   The more people made aware the better chance we have at beating this birth defect. 

I have emailed several companies requesting that they make the change on their websites of color definitions for the awareness ribbons and add us.  Let’s all pray that it works out just as easily. 

So, here’s my proposal.  I want each of you to submit a picture with you wearing turquoise or someone else wearing turquoise or just something turquoise.  Nothing crude or rude please!  There will be four (4) gifts given out to the winners.

Most # of People in a Picture Wearing Turquoise – $75 MC gift card

Most Creative – $50 Target gift card

Sweetest Picture – $25 Wal-Mart gift card

Cutest Picture – Gift Basket from Bath and Body Works


Get everyone you know involved!  Let’s make this a huge success and help to bring awareness! 

 Please submit your pictures to:

Post Office Box 2199

Elizabethtown, NC 28337


The deadline for submitting will be January 31, 2008.  It must be postmarked by this date or will not be eligible for consideration.

If you have any questions please email at:

Hmmm…makes me want to run right out and buy tourquoise clothing. We seriously don’t have one piece of it in this house. I wonder if the Gap does. 🙂
