Turn The Towns Teal®

Hanging teal ribbons on trees and post signs in towns across this country.

I love seeing ribbons as I drive around NJ. Check out their website for more information and put it on your calendar as something to do next year!

In support of Turn The Towns Teal® , Folonari wine and Frederick Wildman and Sons will donate $10,000 to Turn The Towns Teal® for the first 10,000 selfies of people wearing teal on social media that are tagged with #turnmyselfieteal  . See for more information. 

Teal Toes

This campaign in which women ( and some men and even pets) paint their toe nails TEAL was founded by Carey Elizabeth Fitzmaurice (1968- 20015).  It is the perfect way to start a conversation about ovarian cancer. I've painted my toes TEAL every September since hearing about it.

Do you know of other unique or fun ways to raise awareness of a gynecologic cancer?
Please let me know and I will add to this page.

Every Day is a Blessing!
