Okay, I know this has absolutely nothing to do with children's literature, poetry or teaching, but I just had to share this creative idea for a worthy cause.
Members of Quilters of South Carolina have created one-of-a-kind bras for Breast Cancer Awareness. The exhibit consists of fifty original works of art which are unique, entertaining, humorous, and beautiful to make the public aware of breast cancer, to memorialize those lost to the disease, and to honor survivors.Visit the Artfull Bras Project to see these amazing creations. My favorites are Buttons and Bows and Boobs (p. 1) and Look at Them Melons (p. 2). Which one(s) do you love?
This exhibit will tour SC until Oct '09 at which time individual Artfull Bras will be auctioned and the proceeds donated to the Best Chance Network, a program to provide care and treatment of uninsured women across the state who are diagnosed with breast and cervical cancer.
