Hello! My name is Danette and I am the owner of The Birdcage Furniture.
In October 2019 I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer, and I made this bench to donate to the Cancer Treatment Center that was caring for me. They LOVED it, and wanted to put it in the waiting room but the hospital’s corporate office required approval for any type of donation. After months of trying to get it approved it was never approved. I ended up storing the piece for many months and then in the spring I put it in my booth. I am very happy that the person that ended up purchasing it was a Breast Cancer Survivor, but my vision for my donation fell short.
So I have changed my direction on giving back, and came up with the idea to paint a piece of furniture in October (Breast Cancer Awareness Month) and donate it to either a Warrior or Survivor to give some happiness to someone in need.
The goal is to bring awareness to Breast Cancer as well as help someone in need of a little happiness. The more participants the broader the reach! So I hope you join me this October in #paintitpink2020 to give something beautiful to a worthy Warrior or Survivor!
