      Support Your Email List Gal and Fight Breast Cancer
      These weekly emails are brought to you by me, Wendy Bumgardner. In
      September, I'll be walking the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer - over 26
      miles. My goal is to raise $3000, and I've contributed 1/3 of that
      myself so that my donors know that all of their money goes into the
      cause, not into overhead for the walking event.
      Together, we can end breast cancer forever.
      You can donate online, or email me and I'll send you a donation form.
