Actually, TWL won the contest but then graciously donated their award to this awe inspiring organization. Pictured right, development manager for Komen, Karen Kliebhan accepts a check for $500 on behalf of the Foundation.
TWL said, "I can't tell you how pleased I am! I'm absolutely delighted that the money is going to such a worthy cause."
Marking its 25th anniversary, to date Komen has invested nearly $1 billion toward its mission to end breast cancer. The organization is responsible for turning breast cancer into a priority health issue for women, researchers, health professionals and politicians worldwide.
Where will TWL's contribution go? In '07, Komen for the Cure is focusing on special national and international initiatives. These initiatives include: the Komen Community Challenge, a policy and education tour to 25 communities; the first-ever State of Breast Cancer Report; and the world's first Global Breast Cancer Advocate Summit.

Congratulations TWL! Thank you. What a TOTALLY classy thing to do.
Special thanks to all who participated in February's contest. Good luck next month.
