With encouragement from family and friends, Brenda gathered a group of individuals from the ages of 8-65, both female and male, to raise more than $18,000 in that first year. Since then, the "New England Walkers for Knockers" team has raised almost $57,000.00 to date towards finding a cure for Breast Cancer. The NE-W4K goal is to raise money towards finding a cure for breast cancer and also raising awareness of the preventative measures that can be taken to help detect the disease as early as possible.

The Get in Touch Foundation was established by Mary Ann Wasil Nilan in 2004 to encourage women of all ages to “Get In Touch” with their bodies as part of an ongoing crusade to educate them about the importance of early breast cancer detection. Mary Ann has won The Oprah Magazine CoverGirl Giving Beautiful Back Award and can be seen in the February issue of O Magazine.

Waves of Gratitude has set a goal of donating $150,000 to The Get In Touch Foundation while helping to reach team fundraising goals with the New England Walkers for Knockers. Individual participants in breast cancer walk fundraisers are encouraged to contact about the steps necessary to join Waves of Gratitude in spreading the word about Inspired Jewelry and Apparel to apply $3 of each Large Branches of Hope sale toward individual or team fundraising goals.
