I now have the new Preeclampsia Awareness Pins for sale on my website. These pins were given to the PE survivors at this years Saving Grace. They were designed by me. The cost of the pin is $12.50 and 100% of the proceeds goes directly to the Preeclampsia Foundation. The price also includes shipping.

Thanks Wendy. I just put it in the envelope and it is going into the mailbox first thing in the morning. ;) Spread the word. My goal is to run out of these fast and have to have more made up. ;)

Thanks Sabrina. I am glad to hear all is going well for you. I hope it continues to.

I'm planning on getting these as some Christmas gifts for some friends and fam back home.

So you're saying if you run out, you'll make more? (Isn't there a commercial for something like that?!?) :)

Amazing job Melissa. You truly are talanted.

Thanks Heather and Dawn. I appreciate the compliments. ;)

Thanks Alice. If we run out, it is our goal to have more of them made. I am also looking into having them done in different forms, like a necklace charm and such, but that won't happen for a while yet. Right now I have about 40 of the pins left, so not too many. And like I said, I would love to have to make more.

Thanks Wendy, we have discussed that one as well. I am sure we will have several more talks as we go. So bring on the suggestions. I would hate to make a lot of items and then have them just sitting here.
