All of us, at one point in our lives, will be either directly or indirectly affected by cancer. The American Cancer Society does a fantastic job on educating the public and raising money for cancer research. Hopefully, a cure or better treatment options will be available within our lifetimes, but they need our help. Hence, the proceeds of the sales for each of these keychains will be donated to my school's Relay for Life team to help in the search for a cure.

These keychains are perfect for busy moms, teachers and survivors or fighters alike. They make excellent "just because" gifts, stocking stuffers and teacher appreciation gifts.

More Infant Loss Awareness and Support Our Troops Ribbons

Erin asked the difference in sizes of a wristlet an key fob. This below is my wristlet on 1 inch nylon webbing that I use daily. I thought the white would get so much dirtier than it has, but it's been great and even that little green smudge on there was fuzz from the couch. The wristlets are 10 inches in length before they're folded over.
Key fobs are half that size at 5 inches before folding over.
Here's a picture of a key fob in action! Nothing like an action shot to really bring life into the picture...okay, so keys are rather boring for photography, but this is the key fob the man uses for his daily keys.
Hopefully that helped!

What started off as just a cancer awareness keychain operation has morphed into celebrating a myriad of causes near and dear to our hearts. I couldn't be happier. The suggestions we've had to this point have been invaluable, but the two from the last two days are extraordinary.

Erin, who is braving Earl at this moment, asked for ribbon to recognize our troops. I'm happy to say we now have the red white and blue ribbon that stands for the all inclusive "Support Our Troops."
I also found a better yellow than my original reflector tape yellow. The yellow ribbon signifies our anticipation of our soldier's homecoming with the phrase "Until they Come Home" which tears me up in pride and anxiousness.
I did some more shopping for Barbie from yesterdays Infant Loss Awareness ribbon and found this pink and blue ribbon to be bolder than the pale pink and blue of yesterday. I'll keep the original on the website regardless, but this key chain would be made to show blue on one half and pink on the other side and sewn with pink on the blue and blue on the pink.

It's not sewn down in the picture so it may look a bit strange here. I'll plan on having these three ribbons up by the end of the evening.

Keep the suggestions coming. There are tons of awareness ribbon colors and so few products for the supporters that I feel through these simple keychains we could provide some serious hope and comfort to others and raise money for a spectacular cause at the same time.

The morning comes early. Sweet dreams, everyone.
