Part of what I enjoy of having a personal business is that I can raise awareness for a variety of things. One group of people that have really touched my heart are those struggling with CRPS (Complex Regional Pain Syndrome). This disease, like those that I struggle with, is tough! I was doing research and found some articles describing their lives (http://www.rsdhope.org/what-is-crps.html and http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/reflex_sympathetic_dystrophy/detail_reflex_sympathetic_dystrophy.htm). Daily painful suffering is not only physically taxing but it is also emotionally taxing. As I have seen in my own life, living with pain daily….is more than just a physical struggle.
As the Houston CRPS group is preparing for their FIRST awareness event (yes SOOO many people have never heard of this disease) I felt it would be awesome to support them in some way. So an idea formed and with the help of some amazing MK people and friends here is the idea that blossomed. I hope you share this post with as many people as you can! I hope we not only RAISE AWARENESS but also bless those many men, women, and children struggling with diseases. Satin Hands doesn’t sound like much, but it is sometimes those little things that truly touch someones life!
From my Mary Kay webpage (don’t forget to “like” it :)) –
“In preparation for their FIRST Awareness Event I am “adopting” some amazing Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS) fighters in our amazing city and presenting each of them with a special gift to make them feel beautiful, pampered and loved. I would love for you to partner with me and my Mary Kay business to help! For $35, you could sponsor one of these truly incredible fighters and provide them with a set of Satin Hands! As a thank you for your $35 donation, you will also earn $10 MK bucks to spend on a treat for yourself! Get started by sending me an email at JoannaTucker@MaryKay.com or message me through this facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/TheBeautifulPlace). Let’s bring joy to someone else today! smile emoticon #sharingjoy #spreadinglove#bringingawarenesstoCRPS #crps #Crpsawareness
