Boy Meets YSC Girl :)

October 11, 2010








This bag is dedicated to my dear friend Kristen Martinez, a member of the Urban Outfitters family for 15 years. Kristen & I collaborated on a Boy Meets Girl(R) tote bag with Urban Outfitters in 2008 which raised over $13,000 for the Young Survival Coalition. The YSC is the premiere non-profit organization dedicated to providing support and education to young women with breast cancer. We lost Kristen to breast cancer at age 36 after a five year battle. Kristen inspired change. Get inspired-Kristenmartinez.org & Get educated- youngsurvival.org




You can purchase the Kristen Awareness Tote Bag on UrbanOutfitters.com this week. I will keep you posted when it goes LIVE! The tote bag has gone live here Urbanoutfitters.com make sure to get one before they are all gone :) xo

$1.50 from the sale of each tote bag will be donated to the YSC by Boy Meets Girl® and
100% of the proceeds from the sale of this bag will be donated to the YSC, the premier non-profit dedicated to providing support and education to young women with breast cancer via Urbanoutfitters.com




Take a look at my past blog entry about Kristen- she was a true fighter and inspired us all.

I miss you everyday Kristen. Thank you for being an incredible friend.

xo,
Stacy

p.s. Thank you to Urban Outfitters for all of your help to make this happen. Kristen would be so honored. The Urban Outfitters team has been there every step of the way with me & my team to make this come together.

  3. I'm sorry to hear about your friend, Stacy:( This is an awesome dedication to her and I think ur project is wonderful! Unfortunately, this disease seems to have touched most people somehow. A very close family friend was just diagnosed with breast cancer and all we can do is pray for her. I will keep a lookout for this tote!

  6. :)The Owl's Closet. Thank you so much for your note. Kristen was incredible friend and taught me the value of being a warrior. She fought everyday but at the same time lived life and had a smile on her face everyday. The first day I met her was the first day I volunteered for the Young Survival Coalition. I became a co-chair that year and the following year with Kristen. She inspired me everyday and still does. You can learn more about her here www.kristenmartinez.org. I am sorry to hear about your friend who was recently diagnosed. Please please tell her to look up this organization. If you need further info let me know.

    xo,
    Stacy

  7. I know this sounds quite strange? But is it possible that you could send me some images of your collection for aw10/ss11? I'd love to feature you on my blog and do an interview/drawings of your work if that's possible :) I'd love to spread the word about BoyMeetsGirl...

  10. The Owl's closet thank you! The organization is amazing and if your friend is looking for support the YSC is the right place. There are young women from all over the world being diagnosed and the organization allows women to share their feelings and be there for each other. If you need anything else you know where to reach me ;)
