    While I give credit to QVC to for this event and certainly understand the pain and suffering of woman (and men) that have suffered this terrible cancer I would rather see the money go to the individuals Mike George has displaced. They are truly suffering with bills, tuition and other obligations to pay. Sorry I can’t participate on this event ladies.

    • Belinda Says:

      Agreed. I no longer watch or buy from QVC for that reason. Companies that outsource are the root of our economic problems.
      Cindy, to help cancer victims, you can always donate locally as I do, or through the American Cancer society or other organizations that help people. But good for you, not supporting QVC and the way they treat their American employees.
      As soon as I found out they did that, I rescinded my membership. I never bought much from them anyway. I like Antonella and Venable. And I miss them…but they are easy to follow on Facebook.
