Pink Gloves on YouTube

OK-I haven’t passed these kinds of things along here, but this just made my morning, and I thought I’d share the following email I woke up to today.  And since the U.S. Preventive Task Force (yes, I am still angry about this..) recently has supported recommendations against mammograms for women in their 30’s and 40’s I’m supporting anything that will put dollars into free mammograms for women.  Click on the YouTube link at the bottom:

This is really good! Enjoy!!
Our daughter-in-law, Emily (MacInnes) Somers, created, directed and choreographed this in Portland last week for her Medline glove division as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This was all her idea to help promote their new pink gloves. I don’t know how she got so many employees, doctors and patients to participate, but it started to really catch on and they all had a lot of fun doing it.

When the video gets 1 million hits, Medline will be making a huge contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the community. Please check it out. It’s an easy and great way to donate to a wonderful cause, and who hasn’t been touched by breast cancer?
