I’m doing something off the beaten path today that has little to do with wine. But it makes an impact on the 1 in 8 women diagnosed with breast cancer, who unfortunately seem to be my friends and relatives this year.

Today, I’m participating in a  Breast Cancer Blogging Event with hundreds of other bloggers encouraging you to take a moment out of your day and donate $5 or $10 to Jacqueline Reitz. Jacqueline is a 25-year-old breast cancer survivor and mother of two young children who is participating in the Breast Cancer 3 Day benefitting Susan G. Komen for the Cure on the “Betties for Boobies” team (no, I’m not making up the name).

Help Jackie out – do it for your mothers, your sisters, your girlfriends and your daughters.   Head to Jackie’s fund raising page (it’s all tax deductible!) at http://www.the3day.org/goto/jackier and  make your donation! Totals will be posted on the team’s blog tomorrow (www.bettiesforboobies.com), to see what an impact we were all able to make!

Thanks for helping to make a big difference!
