A Holiday Message from Pinked Perspective
When it was time to write a message for our family Christmas card this year, I recalled how Philippians 4 had been speaking the truth that my weary soul was so deperately in need of. We all longed for another fresh start in 2022, only to be met with more loss, heartache and struggle. The encouragment to “Rejoice!”, to “Not be Anxious”, and to think about “Whatever is lovely” have spoken quietly and deeply. In my own weariness, I fear that my gentleness toward others and myself has not been as evident as it should be. While there is no promise of an end to the struggle, we can remain grateful because of the promise that “The Lord is Near”. This is what allows us to “Be Gentle in 2023”. Much love and prayers from Pinked. ~Kara
We are so grateful for a wonderful Think Pink season this fall. We were able to collect approximately $23,000.00 as our supporters were thinking pink with us during October and beyond. Many joined us for our annual Think Pink Family Fun Happy Hour event on October 22nd, and it was truly a wonderful celebration. In addition, we have those that are supporting Pinked with recurring payroll giving and end of year gifts that are so beneficial to the ongoing demand of breast cancer kits being sent out to those recently diagnosed and facing treatment. We plan to continue updating our Amazon Wishlist to keep up with our most current needs each month as this is another one of the ways people choose to support Pinked as well. Be sure to continue checking your inbox on that First Monday of the month to hear about the latest happenings and needs of Pinked Perspective. For those that have considered supporting the mission of Pinked by hosting a Kit Assembly, we would love to hear from you and get something on the calendar with you for early 2023.
As we look ahead to a new year, we hope you know that we cannot do this without you and appreciate you so much!
