Diamonds and Chocolate...that is bliss!!!!

So, it's time to explain the feed posted yesterday about the diamonds and chocolate. If you haven't followed the link, you really must. I can't think of anything better. They say diamonds are a girl's best friend, but I would go so far to say that chocolate is a girl's spiritual adviser. Well, at least this girl.

The tie-in comes around due to the fact that the Tour de Pink is sponsored by the Hershey Chocolate Co. . Hershey's is the largest corporate sponsor of the Young Survival Coalition. They give a check for $30,000 each year as well as the funds that are raised by the event.

This year they asked for survivors who were riding in the TDP to submit their story. They subsequently chose five of us to serve as spokespeople. You guessed it, I am one of the five. (I assume that only five submitted their story, hence I get to be a part of the fun!)

They flew us to Hershey for a whirwind one day/one night trip during which we posed for photographs, were interviewed, and here's the best part...ate chocolate! Seriously, it was a great experience. I met four other awesome young survivors and have four new firends. Each of us had a unique story and it was truly amazing to hear each one of them.

Hershey's Bliss is the chocolate that will be turning pink for YSC this year. It is delicious, creamy, and everything I need. They even put little pink ribbons on the wrapper. The YSC logo is on the bag, and you may even be blessed to see my face (or I am hoping not anatomically correct cardboard cut-out of me at the candy display in your local store!) Yes, that's right, mine is the face of bliss! Of course, Brad always says that!!! (Ha!) So look for the chocolate in your local store and buy! Buy! Buy! Do your Halloween candy shopping early and support the YSC!

I've posted some of the photos from the shoot here. All I can say is, God bless professional make-up artists and photographers! They are amazing!

The interviews will be on the Hershey's Bliss Tour de Pink website starting October 1st. Keep your eye out!
