The World’s Greatest Treasure Hunt Review Breast Cancer Awareness

[ 0 ] October 31, 2010 |

The World’s Greatest Treasure Hunt™: Quest for the Golden Eagle

By Ron Shore

“For the treasure hunter, I would say this is the ULTIMATE book!”  Chief Blonde, Still Blonde after all these YEARS

A $1 Million Treasure is Hidden Somewhere in the World…All You Have to Do is Find It.
When faced with the tragic loss of his sister in law to breast cancer, Ron Shore responded in the most unusual way: he created a $1 million dollar, international treasure hunt.

Ron has invested his life savings into raising $100 million dollars to find a cure for breast cancer with the Hunt for the Cause Foundation. Shore explained, “when I personally experienced what can happen to a family who loses a mother and friend to breast cancer, I was moved to do something about it – to unite mothers, wives, sisters and daughters who have been impacted by this disease while recognizing that fathers, husbands, brothers and sons are similarly impacted when one of their family is told they have breast cancer.”

Gabriel Helmes-Shore passed away from breast cancer in 2004, two days after delivering her daughter, and only four weeks after finding out that the cancer she thought she had beaten three years earlier had returned mid way through her pregnancy. Ron Shore’s niece, now a healthy 5 year old, is growing up without ever knowing her brave mom.

Dubbed as the greatest and largest treasure hunt ever, the 12 chapter book, The World’s Greatest Treasure Hunt: Quest for the Golden Eagle will unite treasure hunters from around the globe, as they work to solve the clues leading to the $1 million grand prize: an eagle, handcrafted by Canadian artist, Kevin Peters and made from 18 pounds of solid gold, with 1.1 carat pear shaped diamond eyes and 763 diamonds weighing 53.66 carats covering its head.

Probably the most unique aspect of this treasure is that it stands watch over the 400-year-old, 12.73 carat “Atocha Star” emerald. Provided by Mel Fisher’s Treasures of Key West, Florida to help raise funds for cancer research, this is the largest cut emerald from the Atocha, a Spanish Treasure Galleon which sank in 1622.

Along the way, readers will collectively unlock clues, maps, and other milestones. And, as each chapter is solved, one treasure hunter will find the location of a silver eagle worth more than $20,000.

Still Blonde small I had to hide this book from my son who is a treasure hunter and has won several large prizes (not this large).  I could tell from reading it that he would be instantly addicted.  Alas, he must graduate from college–so I cannot be the one to provide him with distractions.  Needless, to say, this book has it all for the treasure hunter..and then some.  How often do you come across a treasure book that is this finely crafted, that has a companion “Cracking the Code” book, that offers SUCH a substantial prize, and supports a worthy cause (Cancer Research–Hunt for the Cause!) –Duh..NEVER!  The paper the book is printed on looks and feels like an old treasure map, each chapter winds its way around to get the reader to the $20,000 prize that is available for that chapter.  For the treasure hunter, I would say this is the ultimate Book.

Paula Young Wispy Waves Wigs Review – Breast Cancer Awareness

[ 286 ] October 26, 2010 |

Paula Young “Wispy Waves” Wigs with 4 interchangeable Headbands!

Wigs for Women over 45

Paula Young’s new Wispy Waves Interchangeable Headbands is a cute  5” long wavy-haired wig paired with one of four interchangeable headbands attached with Velcro®.  The headbands colors are Tortoise, red, navy and for a limited time–PINK.  The headbands can  can be removed easily to create a whole new look.  Paula Young  will also make a donation to help fund breast cancer research when you purchase The Wispy Waves Interchangeable Headbands.  (Also, they donate when you buy one of their  Think Pink Wigs , that we featured in this post:

Still Blonde smallThe Wispy Waves wig (or maybe I should say “Fall” ) is surprisingly cute.  I have a ton of hair, so a wig for me seemed a little..well redundant, until I put it on.  Wow,  I really really liked it.  So I wore it to dinner with 5 of my girlfriends.  The color matched so exactly, that everyone thought it was real.  The styling is fun and different.  While I have never been a headband girl, this look really worked for me with the extra volume beyond the headband.  Once I revealed to my girlfriends that it was a wig, they were shocked and oh so interested.  They wanted to know how it attached (with the headbands and secured with combs in the front and back), how I got the color so exact (the wigs comes in 24 color choices),  and why I didn’t cut my hair like that!  Highly recommend. I even wrote a review for the website, I thought it was that cute.
