Breast of Canada calendar

Wednesday, October 18, 2006

If you read this blog directly (rather than via the RSS feed), you may have noticed the beautiful Breast of Canada photo in the sidebar. I added this to my site after meeting the creator of this calendar, Sue Richards, at BlogHer in California earlier this year. Needless to say, I have my copy of her 2007 calendar ready to go for next year.

Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I thought that there couldn’t be a better time to highlight her message, and encourage you to buy one of her amazing calendars (no, I don’t get a kickback from this, except in the karmic sense). Sue’s message is about breast health and having a healthy attitude towards breasts, and net proceeds from the sales of the calendar go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Network, a national network of organizations that is focussed on breast cancer survivors. Buy one for yourself, for your mother, your sister, your daughter and your girlfriends.

The calendar contains some very striking images of both healthy breasts and breast cancer survivors, just normal women hanging around topless. 🙂  The one of all the topless women waiting at a bus stop is my absolute favourite.

Sue also writes a few blogs: one about the calendar project, one about menopause, one on news and views about breasts, and one about Guelph, the town where she lives.
