Pink Glove Dance

This makes me smile every time I watch it.
What a great fundraiser for breast cancer awareness.
Pink Glove Dance on You tube



It came to me via an email this was the message attached.

Dear Everybody, please watch the video & send it to your friends.

Our daughter-in-law, Emily (MacInnes) Somers, created, directed and
choreographed this in Portland last week for her Medline glove division as a
fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This was all her idea to help
promote their new pink gloves. I don't know how she got so many employees,
doctors and patients to participate, but it started to really catch on and
they all had a lot of fun doing it.

When the video gets 1 million hits, Medline will be making a huge
contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the
community. Please check it out. It's an easy and great way to donate to a
wonderful cause, and who hasn't been touched by breast cancer?

As I have never attached a You Tube before and when I have seen it on other blogs it usually takes you to You Tube some how this doesn't !!!!!!
Here is the link because I think they have to get the hits from You Tube if you get my drift.

I am actually patting myself on the back being able to put the video on my blog.

Leanne - first time on your blog - followed a link to your thread catcher pattern from another blog. the pink glove video has been going around here in the states for a while - it is wonderful. It is great how people come together for a cause. Also thanks for the thread catcher directions I am going to whip one or more than one up today!!

Your DIL is magnificent! Made my heart feel like it was going to burst and found myself smiling all the way through it! I looked at my daily calendar as it was playing and found this:
Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their work; If one falls down, his friend can help him up. (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10 NIV)...how appropriate.
