gal to gal

In an effort to dedicate at least one post to Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I've been searching and lurking for blogs that have "gone pink" during the month of October. While I discovered lots of blogs that dedicated posts to "being pink", I found a virtual walk website (thank you Kristi and thus, Martha Stewart), Gal to Gal Foundation, that I thought was really creative and perfect for techie-chicks.


The Gal to Gal Foundation was created by the founder of Design-Her-Gals, a super girly stationary website. The foundation aims to provide women diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer with the support they need to maintain their dignity while receiving treatment throughout the progression of their disease. The Gal to Gal Foundation partners with existing organizations dedicated to the emotional and financial well-being of those diagnosed with Stage IV breast cancer, including Making Memories, an organization that grants wishes for Stage IV patients and their families.

So let's get to the super cool part...Design-Her-Gals launched the first virtual walk across America! Your gal will walk from Boston to San Francisco and stop in 29 other cities along the way. Obviously, no training is necessary! The only thing you have to do is create "your gal"! The foundations goal is to register one million stylish walkers. For only a $3 donation (and a few minutes) you too can create a stylish walker.

Meet Alyssa T., she joined on Day 10 in Atlanta, GA.
