{GIVEAWAY CLOSED} Save 2nd Base T-Shirt Giveaway

Saturday, June 4, 2011
At the start of this year, I decided that one of the goals of Pieces of a Mom was to serve a greater good. I wanted to do more charitable work and to bring attention to causes that were near and dear to me. One of those causes is breast cancer awareness, detection, and prevention.

Both my mother and my mother-in-law were survivors, and so, the cause pulls at my heart strings. And in this day and age, unfortunately, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone whose life hasn't been affected by breast cancer.  I've asked myself over and over again, "When will it end and what can I do to help?" There are so many organizations committed to the fight to end breast cancer. One such organization is Save 2nd Base, a phrase coined by Kelly Rooney who battled breast cancer for four years before losing her battle at the age of 43.

Kelly's battle was a long and courageous one. Her optimism and her sense of humor led her to coin the phrase "Save 2nd Base". It was Kelly's mission to use humor to bring awareness to the fight against breast cancer. When Kelly designed the original t-shirt for a breast cancer walk, she had no idea that Save 2nd Base would turn into a full-fledged apparel company.

Kelly not only left behind 5 children and a devoted husband, but also a legacy that lives on today through the Kelly Rooney Foundation. The Foundation, founded by Kelly's husband Sean, strives to inspire support, research and eradication of breast cancer in young women by pledging ongoing funds for research surrounding high-risk women under the age of 40.

I couldn't be more pleased to offer 2 lucky readers a Save 2nd Base t-shirt. The t-shits are the signature "Kelly" fitted t-shirts in XL (comfortable fits sizes M-L).
