Breast Cancer Awareness and Wisconsinmade

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and it’s a big time of year over at Wisconsinmade.com.  For the 17th year running, Wisconsinmade will be donating 10% of all internet sales from the month of October to support breast cancer awareness, research, and recovery. It’s an excellent and easy way for Wisconsinmade shoppers to show support through purchase of gourmet gifts and food. We at Wisconsinmade are proud of our long dedication and partnership with two excellent Wisconsin-based organizations that do wonderful work:

The Wisconsin Breast Cancer Coalition brings Wisconsin voices together to stand up and speak out about breast cancer through education, collaboration, and legislation.

Breast Cancer Recovery‘s mission is to provide environments for women breast cancer survivors to heal emotionally.  All programs are designed and conducted by survivors for survivors.

So please help us support these fine organizations through your purchase of our special pink products or any of the other 2,200 items on Wisconsinmade.com.  You can even make Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas purchases now and request delayed delivery to a later date and your purchase will count towards our contribution. Below are a couple examples of our pink ribbon merchandise:

Cancer Survivors

Cancer survivors, well, survivors of all kinds, tell stories steeped in lessons.  

Experience with Breast Cancer Treatment

In my life are cancer survivors, and in my heart are those who didn’t survive. Despite differences in outcome, their stories of the fight are the same. Last week I listened to a different kind of survivor’s story, and was struck by its similarities to cancer survivors‘.

This story was told by a woman who had survived six years as a hostage, held by militants in a South American jungle. She lived in a small cage with others, deprived of food and a latrine. She was beaten regularly to amuse her captors. Even dying wasn’t permitted. What kept her going?

Like cancer survivors and other sufferers, she had to turn inward and find her way through her own spiritual resources. And in a small way, her dreams of food helped. Keep reading for more of the story.

Sweetest

Sweetest Story on Sweetest Day – Which history of Sweetest Day do you believe?

Sweetest Day falls on the 3rd Sunday in October. Who says? The official story is that Cleveland candy-company employee, Herbert Birch Kingston, had such a kind and philanthropic heart that he decided to give away boxes of candy to society’s over-looked members, – the orphans, shut-ins, newsboys, and the poor. The official story heralds Sweetest Day as a day of altruism.   

But do you believe this?

Or are you more inclined to accept the behind-the-scenes scoop ferreted out by Cleveland reporter, Bill Lubinger of the Plain Dealer newspaper? Lubinger wrote that Kingston was the dupe of 12 candy-manufacturing moguls who in a smoke-filled back room connived this heart-strings-pulling promotion to increase their candy sales. When their poster-child, Kingston, wasn’t generating enough new sales, the moguls brought in bombshell celebrities, Theda Bara and Ann Pennington, to publicly give away candy to the poor.

And did their promo work? Sort of. Keep reading.
