Country Music Superstar, Trisha Yearwood, partners with Coldwater Creek to
benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure
SANDPOINT, Idaho, June 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Imagine beginning a journey that ends with a cure for breast cancer.
That's the inspiration behind women's apparel retailer Coldwater Creek's new Susan G. Komen fundraiser, "Share your journey...for the Cure", an engaging viral fundraising program launched in joint effort with Trisha Yearwood, country music star, author of "Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen" and passionate breast health advocate.
"I've walked 60 miles in the Breast Cancer 3-Day event to help find a cure, but the real journey has just begun," said Trisha Yearwood of her support of "Share your Journey...for the Cure" fundraiser.
"Trisha's passion for this cause feels so right for us, and we couldn't be more thrilled that she is willing to help spread the word about this great program," said Elizabeth Turley, Director of Marketing for Coldwater Creek. "Share your Journey ... for the Cure not only delivers a message of awareness, but raises funds that benefit the local Affiliates of Susan G. Komen for the Cure."
To start your Journey, pick up a donation card at any Coldwater Creek store, or log onto http://www.coldwatercreek.com/journey. After making a donation online, everyone will receive a referrer ID and email to pass on to friends, family, and coworkers, breast cancer survivors and co-survivors, inspiring additional donations along the way.
