Pink Wings April Newsletter and Specials

posted by:

I hope everyone is having a fantastic spring.  My family and I have been enjoying time on the ski slopes together nearly every weekend. My young kids are also busy with dance competitions and soccer games. My oldest daughter is finishing up with her freshman year at the University of San Diego.  Time is flying by! It is hard to believe that she was just 3 years old when I was diagnosed with breast cancer for the first time.

The new pins are now in at Pink Wings. We have all pins in stock except for the Black Bust Pink Ribbon pin, which is sold out again. As the walk season begins, more orders are coming in for the Pink Wings Fundraising Kits

SKU #1270  and SKU# 1004 .

The Pins in Bulk (SKU #1285, and SKU #1329) are also great. You can mix and match the pins you purchase to maximize your fundraising. These are great items to sell when raising money for your upcoming events.  We also have tons of pink ribbon knee socks in stock. They are available in white, black, grey or pink and can be purchased at discount pricing when ordering in bulk. These are fantastic for walk teams, dance teams, cheerleaders, soccer, volleyball, soft ball and basketball teams!

We still have a few of the pink ribbon hoodies for sale in Pink.  I have just 5 left and they are all size small. I also have a few hoodies in Periwinkle Blue (sizes XL and 3XL only). The Periwinkle blue hoodies run big. We also have the 2-tone Zip hoodies available in all sizes (S-2XL). The Zip Hoodie runs small- so it is best to buy one size larger than you normally wear. I have 2 of the children’s hoodies left in size small only (it fits a girl size 3-4). Buys yours today!!

The Tye Dye Pink Ribbon Shirts in Pink and Black (SKU# 1681), the Camo Pink Ribbon shirt (SKU #1478), and the Faith Burn Out shirt (SKU# 1131) all continue to be big sellers.

We will have a new Pink Wings Pink Ribbon shirt available in May. It will come in Survivor with Pink Ribbon, or just Pink Ribbon. Colors available will be Black or White.

If your team is looking for cute pink ribbon shirts to wear at your event- I do bulk pricing on the Pink Wings shirts. Most come in sizes S-2XL and the camo comes up to a 3XL. I will also send you Pink Wings temporary tattoos for your team for each shirt ordered. Email me at for more information and pricing.

Don’t forget to check out our new Co-Survivor Pink Ribbon pins. These are great for those that have supported a woman (or man) going through treatments for breast cancer. They come in 3 styles.   

Our butterfly ribbon pin now comes in 3 colors; pink, teal and purple.
