Hello ,

We truly are "changing the world one girl at a time!"

Our Daisy Wheels have been shipped to all corners of the world, and girls in grades 5-12 will know the importance of and how to do a breast self exam - for life! 

Our goal is to be in all 50 states by the end of 2010!!

Want to help make our mission a movement?  You can "GIT Your Pink On!" on October 15th - wear pink to work or school and donate one dollar to Get In Touch.

One Dollar is One Daisy Wheel.
One Daisy Wheel is One Girl.
One Girl is the Whole World.

Stay tuned to our website...soon you'll be able to see a map with every GIT State in pink so you'll know if Daisy Wheels will be rolling into your community!

Hope Lives!
  GIT Your Gown On!
