AWC work against breast cancer in October

AWC was delighted to receive the following acknowledgement from Nancy Friis-Jensen, head of the Heart Pillow Project:
Dear AWC,

I wish to thank AWC in Denmark for the generous monetary donation to the Heart Pillow Project. I would also like to take the opportunity to thank AWC in general for the support for the Project, and especially Mary Stewart Burgher for hosting pillow-stuffing events, and Jonelle Lemcke for delivering the stuffed pillows back to the project.

AWC took part in Lyserød Lørdag in Denmark (left), joining other non-profit groups (such as the Heart Pillow Project) at Farum Bytorv, on 9/10.

We were happy to publicize AWC’s work for Heart Pillow, and to raise and donate DKK 400 kr to Støt Brysterne at the end of the day. Many thanks to Laura Kamis Wrang, who organized the event and invited us to participate!
At the morning and evening stuffing events on 11/10, AWC volunteers enjoyed tea and cookies, and each other’s company, as well as stuffing nearly 40 additional heart pillows. Thanks to all – especially Joan Bentsen, Nancy Friis-Jensen, Lesley Jensen, Jonelle Lemcke and Véronique Pascal – who contributed to this great result.
