Pearl of Wisdom Campaign and Giveaway


Friends tell friends how to prevent cervical cancer.  Learn how at www.pearlofwisdom.us


I adore pearls. Most of my real jewelry has some kind of pearl on it; my most precious piece is a pearl necklace and earring set from Mikimoto, creators of the most beautiful cultured pearls in the world . Call me old-fashioned; I think a strand of pearls on a woman's neck just screams grace, beauty and classic elegance. So when I was wandering through the vendor expo at BlogHer '09, it's no wonder that this pearl pin from the Pearl of Wisdom Campaign to Prevent Cervical Cancer caught my eye. It's easily one of the prettiest pieces of swag I've ever gotten.


But this post isn't about reviewing the Pearl of Wisdom pin (even though I love it). No, I'm posting this because cervical cancer sucks -- but with proper screening and vaccination, almost every case of cervical cancer can be prevented. And the Pearl of Wisdom Campaign was founded in order to raise awareness of this fact. And if spending a little bit of time to put up a post on my blog can help do that, I'll gladly do it. So I have.

Women all over are wearing the Pearl of Wisdom pin to show their support of the campaign. You can view our photos at the Pearl of Wisdom photo gallery. Everyone who posts a photo before October 31, 2009 is eligible to win some fabulous prizes.


Want to join in? You can purchase this beautiful pin online for $6.95. Or win one here! Five lucky Bonggamom Finds readers will receive the Pearl of Wisdom pin. To enter, simply visit my Pearl of Wisdom interview post on Finding Bonggamom and leave a comment or a message of support for Michelle (then come back here and leave a comment telling me that you did).

For extra entries, you can do either or all of the following:

1) Send a virtual pearl to a woman you care about and let them know how they can prevent cervical cancer (leave a comment here with the email address you used to send the virtual pearl).

2) Grab my blog button and post it up on your blog (leave a comment here with your blog URL).

3) Tweet this giveaway (leave a comment here with a link to your tweet). Here is a sample tweet you can copy and paste:

Left a message for Michelle.

BTW: I had no idea that Women age 30 or older had to get the Pap test AND the HPV test together as part of routine cervical cancer screening. Guess I will be getting the HPV test done in January with my annual pap.
