Mother’s Day is just over a week away.  Purchase something special from Pinkwings.com  We have over 200 different pink ribbon pins to choose from as well as beautiful sterling silver jewelry, pink ribbon leather wallets, clothing, hats and scarves. The What’s In Your Heart (Heart Pendant) and What’s In Your Soul (Circle Pendant) necklaces make a great Mother’s Day or Grad gift. Choose the birthstones, initials and charms to make the gift a unique one just for her.

       

Our new Pink Wings Pink Ribbon V-Neck shirts are hot off the presses.  They are available in white or black. The shirts come with or without the word SURVIVOR going down the left hand side of the shirt, just beyond the pink ribbon design.  The cost is just $20 for White and $22 for Black. They come in sizes Small-3XL. These shirts run very true to size, if not a little big. They are not the typical fitted shirt and are more of a uni-sex fit. The V-neck is not too deep and the sleeves run a bit longer than the traditional V-neck, so it will cover your upper arms. The shirt is also nice and long. This is a soft, 100% cotton, pre-shrunk shirt.  The Pink Ribbon design is exclusive to Pink Wings. The back of the shirt is blank. You will LOVE our new shirt!!  This shirt is great for teams walking a pink ribbon event- 3 Day Walk, Avon Walk for Breast Cancer, Relay for Life, Making Strides, etc. Bulk pricing is available on orders of 12 or more. I am also able to add team names to the back of the shirt for an added cost.  We can also do custom shirts for your team, organization or event. Just email Courtney at info@pinkwings.com for more information and pricing.

Pink Wings April Newsletter and Specials

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 info@pinkwings.com 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.

I have not added ALL of the state/city walk pink ribbon pins or the dated pink ribbon pins.

Pink Wings January Newsletter and Specials

posted by:

The New Year is here and I am hoping this will be a healthy and happy year for my wonderful Pink Wings customers.

Please make a New Year’s resolution to schedule your mammograms and other screenings, as early detection is the best prevention. I had my first colonoscopy in December (2 years earlier than recommended) as my grandmother died of colon cancer and my mom is currently just finishing up her chemo treatments for colon cancer. I am glad I did this early, as I had to have 1 polyp removed. I now have to go in every 5 years instead of every 10- but that is a lot better than waiting and getting a diagnosis of cancer.

December was slow for Pink Wings, but I did have fun doing a radio show with my sister in Salem, Oregon about being a young survivor. My sister talked about being a Previvor, having had both her breasts removed without having a cancer diagnosis due to her BRCA2 status and my diagnosis.  We were also able to talk about the wonderful organization FORCE (Facing Our Risk of Cancer Empowered- www.facingourrisk.org )

Edna Photos:Edna and her little friend.jpgOn a sad note- I lost my wonderful friend, Edna, to breast cancer in December.  She had just turned 40 on November 6th.  I met her at the Young Breast Cancer Survivor Conference about 10 years ago when she was first diagnosed. After 8 years cancer free, Edna was diagnosed again in September of 2010.  She fought long and hard. Edna was a black belt in Karate & the Karate Girl Pink Ribbon pin was designed from a photo of her. I donated the proceeds of the sales of the pin to help with Edna’s expenses and over $1,000 was raised in just 36 hours. I was touched to find out that an image of the Karate Girl Pink Ribbon Pin will be etched on Edna’s tombstone. Here is a photo of Edna with a little friend.

This is $40 worth of free pink ribbon items with a $45 purchase!  This special is good while supplies last, as I will not be restocking these hoodies. Once they are gone- the special is over. These hoodies are great for training during the winter months for your 3-Day or Avon Walks for Breast Cancer. They are also great to keep you warm during your Relay for Life.

 

 

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

I have some adorable pink ribbon with heart lapel pins that are great for the month of February.  One is a pink ribbon with glitter hearts, another is a heart with wings and the word Courage and lastly is a ribbon with red heart and wings and the word “Co-Survivor”. I also have a “Peace Heart Cure” pin with an adorable glitter red heart in the center. The “What is in your Heart?”  necklace, as well as the “What is in your Soul” necklace make beautiful gifts.  The pink ribbon toggle bracelet has a heart on it as well as one of the pairs of the pink ribbon knee socks. These all make great gifts for the survivor or supporter in your life!

Upcoming Events:

I am very excited about upcoming events.  My first booth will be in New Orleans at the Conference for Young Woman with Breast Cancer. I am flying out a bit early as I have never been to New Orleans before and I can’t wait to explore the city.  I will be meeting my girlfriend Lexi, from Australia, who is also a young survivor.  The conference will be from February 24-26, 2012.  Here is a link to the conference website for more information: http://www.c4yw.org/

The following weekend I will be in Las Vegas for the Power Symposium and the weekend after that, I will travel to Orlando, Florida for the Essentially Women Trade Show. I love getting the chance to fly around and meet my customers.  It is also nice to get out of the rain here in Oregon.

I have signed up to walk in the Twin Cities Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in August of 2012. It will be my 13th walk.  There is a possibility that I may go on a Safari to Africa this summer- if I do that- I may need to pass on doing a 3-Day Walk this year.  Going to Africa has been on my “List of things to do before I die” since my first diagnosis with breast cancer in 1996. I think it is about time that I make this dream a reality! If any of my fantastic customers have info on a great Safari, or decent pricing for a Safari- please contact me at Courtney@pinkwings.com

On a closing note:

I love that they have Make A Wish Foundation for children with terminal illnesses, however, I feel that it is important to make wishes come true every year for your children and yourself.  It is a fact- we will all die someday, and many of us will pass away suddenly. Life is precious and we should make the most of our time here on Earth.  I ask my children- “What is a wish that you have?” and then I try to make it happen. 2 years ago, my girls wanted to be in a parade and my son wanted to ride on a Ferris Wheel.  Within the month of them telling me this, I got an email from AYSO saying they were looking for kids from the soccer teams to ride on the AYSO float in an upcoming parade…and after the parade- there was a festival with a Ferris Wheel. I made their wishes come true on the same day. The next wish the girls had was to go to Maui. We have been over twice now. My oldest daughter wished to go to the University of San Diego. She is starting her 2nd semester there this week. This wish will cost me a lot over the next 4 years J  One of my 9 year olds told me that her next wish is to eat a crepe at the top of the Eiffle Tower in Paris.  We just took her passport photos and I will try to make this happen in the next year or two. My wishes over the years have included buying a house, adopting children, quitting my teaching job, building a big Pink Wings Team for a 3-Day walk and going to Africa. It takes time (and money) to make these wishes come true- but it feels great! Take the time to have a conversation with your kids, your spouse, your parents, yourself…and make a wish come true in 2012!

Happy New Year,

Courtney
