Crafter Jessica Wilson (a.k.a. Jek in the Box) is looking to spread the word about Lupus Awareness Month, which is happening right now. From her Etsy page:
Since 1977, October has been Lupus Awareness Month. While I appreciate all the hard work and effort geared for Breast Cancer Awareness Month I want to give an extra shout out for help and assistance to the Lupus Foundation of America. I lost my mother to Lupus when I was 29 and knowing that there is a genetic predisposition keeps me on my toes. For the month of October I will be selling special edition items in shades of purple. All proceeds will be donated to the Lupus Foundation of America. Thank you!
