I just wanted to make a quick post and let everyone know that 100% of the purchases made today at Yoyo’s TOPSTITCH webstore will go to the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program in my mom’s name. As you may or may not know, my mom is an almost 4 year survivor and has worked with the Adelphi program for that entire time, including speaking at their Celebration of Survivorship in 2008. I’ve mentioned TOPSTITCH before, I’m a huge fan of Yoyo’s work. She’s immensely talented, and a wonderful friend to me. She even has her own category over here at Cupcake Rehab. She has a blog as well, and she gives sewing tips and shows off her work and works-in-progress.
She has tons of stuff up for sale in the webstore, and they’d be great as Valentine’s Day gifts or just little “I’m thinking of you” gifts. Or hell, maybe you should just buy something and treat yourself! If you’re a cupcake lover like myself, you can get these coasters or this zippered pouch. But there are a zillion other super cute items, like this little heart patterned tissue holder, this cherry printed zippered pouch or maybe even a houndstooth credit card holder! Or buy an apron for the cook/baker in your life. Disney fan? Here’s Mickey! Like skulls? Check this out. And the best part? Mention me or this site when you order, and you’ll get a special surprise!
I really appreciate Yoyo doing this. Last month she donated to the Villalobos Rescue Center in Los Angeles, and each month during this year, on the 2nd of the month, she’ll be donating to a different charity. The Adelphi program has had a rough time of it lately, so they need all the help they can get. Gov. Paterson has threatened to cut off their funding (yet again), which would most likely force them to close. We can’t let this happen, not only does the Adelphi program provide the hotline and support groups, they also have free classes for survivors- i.e. art classes, cooking classes, etc. They’re also the ONLY bilingual hotline & support program for breast cancer patients in the area. So please make a purchase here, and know that every penny of your purchase (and everyone else’s today) will go to an amazing cause. To find out more about the Adelphi program, click here. For the full list of charities Yoyo is contributing to, go here. She’s also accepting suggestions, so if you know of a small local charity that needs the funds, please let Yoyo know!
And don’t just shop at TOPSTITCH today, shop there everyday.
