Friday Shoot Out---Odds and ends

Well today is Friday Shoot Out.
The theme is graffiti but I could find none in my town. 

That is a good thing.

So please forgive me for using this forum for something very dear to my heart.

But I did run across something that I think is pretty special and I would like to share it with you through FSO.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and something very special is going on out in cyberspace to help raise awareness and funds for the cause.
In honor of my beautiful sister who lost her beautiful life to breast cancer, I would ask you to click on the above basket and see what you can do to help further the cause and there are many ways to help.

There are not many of us who have not been touched by cancer or fought the battle ourselves.

Many fun ways to help. 
Go here to visit Nancy who made this beautiful pink ribbon basket and is helping to sponsor this particular venture.

This beautiful basket could be yours.

Go here for other FSO

I'm glad you posted this graffiti free blog. It is a beautiful basket and I'm glad no-one is going to paint over it.

I'm going on a walk for breast cancer awareness at the end of this month. I had a lady that work with me die recently form it, so sad. We need to find a cure for Cancer! so many people I know are cures with it. Thank you for added awareness.

Thank you for posting something about breast cancer month! I lost my aunt to the disease years ago and have always taken part in fundraisers around town (Race for the Cure, Relay for Life, Crawl for Cancer, etc) that'll help raise money for a good cause!

Tried to put a comment on your Sepia Saturday post but for some reason couldn't manage to. Anyway, all I wanted to say was another wonderful picture. Your family story is slowly being woven together by these images.
