The She Colors My Day project began when a mother named Annette, dying of breast cancer, created a keepsake for the four daughters she was preparing to leave behind. Annette sent a CD of she and her daughters singing to her many friends and family. Unbeknown to Annette, her act of love would the inspiration for her friend, Chrsitina Carlino, founder of Project Miracle, to ignite the She Colors My Day movement- a celebration of the never ending bonds of mothers and daughters. The now worldwide She Colors My Day movement embarks upon a global journey to create for a cure. Inspired by a mother's love, this every widening circle of caring will benefit the Susan G. Komen for a Cure Foundation and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's/Women's Cancer Research Group biomarker project. Hear the story in Cristina's own words here.
So how can you get involved?
Color-We can start by taking the first step to coloring someone else's day through a platform we all know well-Facebook. The She Colors My Day pink crayon is a Facebook application created to be shared with those we love. The pink crayon can be virtually passed around on Facebook so we can all help to create for a cure.
Sing Along-The "She Colors My Day" song co-written by Christina Carlino and Stuart Mathis for Christina's daughter has been recorded by multi-Grammy award winner, Amy Grant. Download the "She Colors My Day Song" and video and help to support this organization. A portion of net proceeds from the song supoorts the She Colors My Day project, benefiting Susan G. Komen for a Cure and the Entertainment Industry Foundation's/Women's Cancer Research Group.
Spread the Word-the ultimate goal of the She Colors My Day project is to support mothers and daughters and create a cure. If you're inspired by this project, please help us share the love by publishing a post on your blog this week that celebrates the special mother/daughter relationships in your life.
