Hope in a Smile: Relay for Life - Breast Cancer Awareness & Fund Raiser

Creative Director, a self-appointed title, at Dark Canyon Coffee Company provides some engaging projects.

Last year I ran in the WAVI 5K Run/Walk and was sponsored by Dark Canyon Coffee.  This years run/walk is on May 15th, unfortunately I will not be available to participate. I'm sure I will find other benefit runs this summer.

This week I designed & hand drew our logo on a sponsored luminary  bag for Relay for Life Breast Cancer 2010 Fundraiser Walks held at the SD School of Mines track. (Last year was June 1, 2009, couldn't find the date for 2010, probably around the same time.)

I cut out the word HOPE in the bag for the light to shine even brighter through the open area. Hope is essential to life. While working on cutting this out and coloring the bag I was reminded all the women I know who have dealt with breast cancer in their lives.

Their smiles were the visual inspiration while creating this handmade bag. Simple little paper bag with pink and blue provides hope for a cure and for the graciousness found in our hearts by just looking for it.
