NBCF + Girl Reinvented, LLC = Making a difference 

If you read my "about" section, you know I created a textile brand, DishRaggs.com, and with it, the best brand extension in the world, my CharityRaggs GiveBack Program

My DishRaggs are a fun and whimsical way to brighten up your kitchen, and CharityRaggs takes that idea to a whole new level with the $5 giveback program. $5 of every CharityRagg sold will be donated to charity! Now, you can brighten up your kitchen, or give the perfect gift, and spread good will at the same time.

Breast cancer is a devastating disease, affecting millions of women (even men) every year. If you have not been personally affected by this horrendous disease, I bet you know someone who has. I know I do. Some brave souls have won the battle, while others have not. It's a dark, ugly reality, but we can not bury our head's in the sand and pretend this silent killer doesn't exist – or won't happen to us. We are all at risk. We must stay strong, support each other and be proactive. While a mammogram may not catch the disease for everyone, it's still our #1 defense against this silent killer. How do you fight an enemy you can't see? By being proactive and vigilant about your own health and by supporting organizations that help the underserved and misinformed – through early detection, education and support. 

Girl Reinvented, LLC is proud to support the tireless work of the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Our official partnership aims to bring awareness and raise much needed funds to give all women, and men, (of every race, religion, and socioeconomic background across this nation) a fighting chance.  

I currently have two different CharityRaggs available to support NBCF. Click HERE to learn more!  

$5 from every NBCF CharityRagg sold will be donated to NBCF to provide help and inspire hope to those affected by breast cancer through early detection, education and support services. #HelpingWomenNow

#stronglikeagirl

Girlreinvented.com was active during my teardrop adventure, and now she's back on for my next adventure, 6 years later, building a company from nothing out of a garage. Blogging takes time, of which I have very little of these days, so for quick updates you can visit my Girl Reinvented,LLC FB page. I am not narcissistic enough to think people would've cared about the daily happenings between my adventure and now. However, my three years on an outrigger racing team in CA (2013-2015) would have been a outstanding chapter to document – it's such a unique, badass sport. Anyway, the point is, I think we're all programmed to be a little narcissistic, but it's up to us to put ourselves in check. Of course that's harder than ever to do in this "selfie" society we live in. Btw: 6 years ago when I was on my adventure, selfies were not popular (or at least not in my Blackberry world). However if you look through my photos, I took a million of them! I was so excited to learn photography that I would carry my tripod with me everywhere I went. For me, it was less about taking a "selfie" and more about documenting my adventure and playing with depth perspective on my Canon SLR. Every single picture holds special meaning. This Montana shot is by far my favorite! No filter at all (I don't think filters existed back then, lol). This is me when I finally saw the Montana sign for the first time cruising down I-90 with my teardrop camper in tow. I was so excited. I had dreamed of visiting Montana all my life. I pulled over, jumped out of the car and quickly set up my tripod. Looks doctored, but it's NOT AT ALL! This is the real highway sign and me pointing at if from at least 100 yards away. 

Anyway, I'm someone who loves when things come full circle. I wait for the spirit to move me – for something to feel right. I need things to click and make sense. And when they do, and the stars align, BAM, it's magic. I get so excited I want to explode.
