From July 1st 2011 to September 8th 2011, all profits from the blue footed booby hat pattern will go towards Kenna’s fundraising efforts for her walk in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day For The Cure. If you are interested in supporting Kenna, you can check out her Fundraising Page. She will be walking as a Blue Footed Booby (complete with blue shoes!) I hope to be able to donate $100 to the cause.

As of 7/16/2011: $15 has been raised.
