October is Country Music Month. The Opry does a lot of special things and its a time for you to be sure to get another friend hooked on country music. However, October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Amy Grant has teamed up with the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund to record a song titled "She Colors My Day" with proceeds going to the Fund. To download the song for the standard 99 cents cost and hear the song visit: http://www.shecolorsmyday.com/ or http://www.amygrant.com/
The organization dedicated to developing an early detection biomarker test so that women’s cancers can be detected years before current tests allow. She Colors My Day is a partnership between Amy Grant, Philosophy, inc., a personal care company, and Art of Grace, a company for greater purpose and not profit, that coincides with breast cancer awareness month.
Inspired by the artwork of her daughter, Cristina Carlino (founder of philosophy and art of grace) and her friend, Stuart Mathis, authored and co-created a heartwarming song called she colors my day that celebrates the relationship between a mother and her daughter. The uplifting song was recorded by multi-platinum artist Amy Grant, and its lyrics have inspired both a Philosophy Fantasy Bubble Bath ($20) and an Art of Grace keepsake gift and sketch book ($20) to build hope and awareness for all women's cancers. Philosophy has also created a special microsite, www.philosophy.com/shecolorsmyday, to allow women everywhere to download the single for $0.99 and support the cause in a number of other ways. Philosophy, Art of Grace and Amy Grant will donate 100% of their net proceeds from the sales of the products and song to the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
