Thanks to you we have raised
over $20,000 for the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation
Since its inception in 1996,
the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation has awarded more than $5
million dollars to fund research for the cancers that affect women.
This cause was very dear to Mary Kay's heart. After the death of
her beloved husband Mel, Mary Kay became very active in cancer research,
knowing that this is the only way we are ever going to find a cure
for this dreadful disease.
In its quest to do more to enrich the lives of women, the Foundation has expanded its mission to include violence against women as well as cancer research. Funds raised by the Foundation for violence issues go to shelters across the country to provide a safe haven from abuse and to provide educational and public service projects.
When I finally decided (after many requests) to record these 'Pink Parodies'
that I had created; I knew that I wanted to donate some of the
proceeds to the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation. After all,
if it weren't for Mary Kay Ash I wouldn't be selling any CD's.
More importantly though, I agree wholeheartedly with the mission
of her company; to enrich women's lives. I lost both of my grandmothers
to cancer. I have a wife, a mother, a mother-in-law, five sisters,
and three beautiful daughters and I can't think of anything more
reprehensible than violence and abuse against women and children.
Thank you for allowing me to be generous with your money. Just a little from many people does make a difference. I hope to be able to donate much more to these causes. I hope you will too. I agree with the words penned by Daniel Defoe, the author of Robinson Crusoe, 300 years ago. "Woman is the greatest gift that either God could bestow or man could receive."
