My good deed for the day

Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

(That's a rhetorical question. Of course you did. Even Anna Marie noticed all the pink stuff that had inundated Target on a recent visit.)

Back to my point.

Here's another question: do you eat frozen dinners?

(That's probably rhetorical too. Most of us fall prey to enjoy frozen dinners from time to time.)

Well, a few weeks ago I stumbled onto a site called Heat, Eat, Review. I can't remember how, and that's really not the important part.

The important part of this post is that for every 1,000 visitors to this site during the month of October, they will donate $1 to breast cancer research.

(There is also a link there to some really, really cool insulated lunch bags from Lean Cuisine, which only cost $9.95, and of that $5 is donated to the Komen foundation.)

So, to sum up: Visit the site. Get some dough donated to this worthy cause. Maybe even order a spiffy new lunch bag.

Look at all the good you've done today. Wasn't that easy?

Thanks for the heads up. I lost my two best friends to breast cancer, with a year and a half of each other. So I support the pink every chance I get.

Thanks girls! And, of course I don't mind if you share - it's like that old shampoo commercial, where she tells two friends, and she tells two friends, and so on, and so on…

Only without the balsam and protein.
