All of a sudden, everyone wants a pen! I thought that 10,000 would be enough for my trip, but was wrong. Just ordered another 10,000 because I am offering them to anyone in the country who wants to give them away at their office, favorite restaurant or even Sunday School class. I am going to give one of these pink wonders to every person I meet on the trip. When I stop to eat, I will give one to all wait staff and every diner. When I get gas, everyone else getting gas gets one and everyone inside as well. At the hotels, all the staff get a pen, and all the patrons I see get one. Everywhere I go, someone gets a pen. When I stop to wash the car (which will be often!), every other car-washer gets a pen, whether they like it or not.
Who knows, one of these little pens might just save a life.
This, I believe, Becky would honor. She was really in to pens because she did crosswords every day. Had to have a certain tip and feel. She even finished the Saturday NYT crossword, the world's hardest. She would like this pen.
Yes, the #Race4Prevention is also printed on the pen, and so this hashtag going forward will begin to change the conversation from breast cancer "research" to breast cancer "Prevention."
