Walks for Causes

I promised a give away today-info follows after the blog entry!

Today I dedicate my blog to some causes that I personally have a stake in.  I will be participating in 2 walks in September and October.  The first walk is next weekend for the Staten Island Family Path Center.  The PATH Family Center is a clinical center in Staten Island that offers integrative and nutritional interventions for individuals diagnosed with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Food Allergies and other related conditions.
My best friend's son, Joseph, has been diagnosed with Autism since a young age and has made so many strides because of the love and support of family and friends and because of the network within the Path Family Center.
Here is the link to find out more and donate to Joey's Team:

The second walk is in October, the Nationally dedicated month for Breast Cancer Awareness.  I have come to know many people diagnosed and treated for breast cancer within the last 5 years.  Why has this Cancer so many women? Maybe because it is because of my age bracket we are more susceptible, or maybe it's because we are more aware, or maybe it is the environment in which we live that affects the well being of our body. 
Most recently, a young woman in my family became very aware of a lump in her breast after a self check.  She immediately took action.  Women, learn a lesson here: know your body, own it, and take care of it!  Here is the link to Kristin's story:

I know that there are many walks for wonderful causes: causes that may have directly or indirectly affected you, a family member, a friend, co-worker, neighbor, etc.  There are many to walk for and raise awareness.  There are many that need our support. 

If you decide to donate to either of these two causes by Saturday at 11:59PM, please leave a comment with your information so that I can enter you in a drawing for Lia Sophia Jewelry.  Your choice of any item under $100 in the Lia Sophia Catalog for free.  If you repost on your twitter or facebook accounts, also please let me know and I will give you an extra chance in the drawing!!! 

The drawing will take place on Sunday morning.  Also, if you want to check out more about Lia Sophia, I am an Advisor in the Tri-City Area (NY, NJ and CT), so please check out my page for more information.

Every woman is the embodiment of beauty, only she knows how to make herself be beautiful, internally and externally.
