Once upon a time in the quaint kingdom of Cockeysville - or more accurately at Shoreleave in Cockeysville - while sitting in the bar at the Hunt Valley Marriott, hoping vainly against hope that their collective powers of awesome would cause Edward James Olmos to materialize (he never did) so they could buy him a drink, four young princesses realized that although their fabulous tiaras really were the crowning glory of their awesomeness, perhaps there was a way they could use them for a higher purpose, like . . . raising money for the fight against breast cancer.
And a few cosmos later... tiaras4tatas was born!!
Who we are: nnaylime, zinke, phdelicious, seariderfalcon, and moyawyvern Five women who aren't afraid to wear a tiara in public, because we’re just that awesome, and because breast cancer is decidedly NOT awesome.
(phdelicious, zinke, nnaylime, and seariderfalcon)
What we're doing: Using our powers of awesome and sparkly pink tiaras to raise money to support the ongoing fight against breast cancer by auctioning off special tiaras4tatas items. Who knows? We may even be able to get a photograph of your favorite celebrity in one of our fabulous tiaras.
All proceeds will go to support the Susan G Komen Foundation through the Global Race for the Cure being held in Washington, DC on June 4, 2011.
Yes, we’re all registered to run the race. And yes, we will all be running in our tiaras.
How can I help? Bid on our auction items. Follow us here on LJ and on Twitter at @tiaras4tatas. Pimp us out (we’re easy). Or you can donate directly to the tiaras4tatas team here.
And if you happen to see us at one of the cons we’ll be attending, feel free to come over and say "hi". We may even have something sparkly and awesome to give to you in return.
