CLICK Yellow for Bri: Turmeric Ravine






















This month’s CLICK is linked to a BREAST CANCER FUNDRAISER organised by Jai and Bee of Jugalbandi for Briana Brownlow @ Figs With Bri.


Turmeric is an auspicious ingredient marking all good beginnings in Indian Culture. I hope that this fund raiser is a good beginning for you Bri. I wish you all the luck and good will and hope that you feel better soon.


Bri was diagnosed with breast cancer two and half years ago. A mastectomy, chemotherapy and two years of relatively good health later, the cancer is back. It has metastasized to other parts of her body. At the age of 15, Bri lost her 41-year old mother to the disease. Now, she’s waging her own war against breast cancer. More about it here.


She is going through intensive chemo and other treatments and needs to focus single-mindedly on healing and finding what treatment works best for her. Her health insurance, unfortunately, does not cover holistic alternatives which she would like to try. Bri and her husband Marc have enough on their plates right now in addition to worrying about her medical bills.



The team organising the JUNE edition of CLICK at Jugalbandi has organised a fundraiser to help Bri and her family meet her out-of-pocket medical costs for ONE YEAR.



CLICK is a monthly theme-based photography contest hosted by Jugalbandi. This month’s theme is: YELLOW for Bri



Yellow is the colour of hope. Through the work of the LiveStrong Foundation, it has also come to signify the fight against cancer.



The entries can be viewed HERE. The deadline for entries is June 30, 2008. The fundraiser will extend until July 15, 2008.



The target amount is 12,000 U.S. dollars. We appeal to our fellow bloggers and readers to help us achieve this. Bri deserves a chance to explore all options, even if her insurance company thinks otherwise.



There’s a raffle with exciting prizes on offer. After viewing the list, you may make your donation HERE or at the Chip-In button on any participating site.



Your donation can be made securely through credit card or Pay Pal and goes directly to Bri’s account.



This month’s photo contest also has some prizes. Details HERE.



You can support this campaign by donating to the fundraiser, by participating in CLICK: the photo event, and by publicising this campaign.

Hi asha, Your click was lovely. I suppose Tamarind is a symbol of auspicious beginnings for most Indians, im not surprised that when we think hope for Bri, we thought tamarind.
