Thats right! Whos ready for 2020?! What are some of your goals going into the new decade?
Twas the last day of 2019
and before all the spritzers,
The B4BC family reflected on the past winter
And the rest of the seasons, what a year it had been!
2019 was an absolute win. 
The amount of people we’ve educated has TRIPLED this year,
Reaching 300k calls for some cheer! 
We distributed over 90k shower cards,
And hosted 56 events in total.
Our skate series raised $92K,
We broke records when we went coastal. 
600 people participated at snow events,
and 350 at skate.
With all of the help and support,
It’s been our BEST year to date. 
We held our first ever Wellness Day,
And over 50 women had a blast.
Our five total retreats served over 90,
TWICE as many as years past. 
Our humble team of seven
Spends nearly 100 days on the road
To spread knowledge of early detection and prevention
So that women can learn, feel supported, and grow. 
It takes a worldwide community
Of caring people, sponsors, and partners
To make a year like this happen—
There’s nothing this group can’t conquer. 
So please keep on giving
And making dreams come true,
Our success for next year
Is only possible with YOU!
💫

Happy New Year 2020 and Happy New Decade Friends! ✨✨✨✨✨✨✨💓
“No matter how hard the past, you can always begin again.” —Buddha

We realize how many hard pasts are out there, and that new beginnings aren't always easy, especially when futures are so uncertain. We are here for you and hope this new year and new decade brings bright possibilities and warm hugs.
💗
Love, Team B4BC
Nothing better than a snowy hug! I think we all can agree that a good hug makes you feel good, but do you know how powerful a hug can actually be? According to scientists, the benefits of hugging goes beyond that warm feeling you get when you hold someone in your arms. Read the benefits below! 
1. The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.

2. Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.

3. Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one's serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.

4. Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body's production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease-free.

5. Hugging boosts self-esteem. From the time we're born our family's touch shows us that we're loved and special. The associations of self-worth and tactile sensations from our early years are still embedded in our nervous system as adults. The cuddles we received from our Mom and Dad while growing up remain imprinted at a cellular level, and hugs remind us at a somatic level of that. Hugs, therefore, connect us to our ability to self-love.

Let's hug more in 2020!😊🙋💓
Happy Birthday sweet @maggiieeg 💞 Our Outreach and Event Manager who spends her time in office as well as on the road 100 days a year 
This gal is a pilar in our Event Management team - her dedication to #teamb4bc is only one of the things we love about her 💗 
May this year bring snowy and beachy fun, and an abundance of love Maggie!
And suddenly you know its time to start something new, and trust the magic of beginnings…
Dream a new dream- set new goals.
B4BC has set new goals and intentions for 2020- and the new decade.
Just like a resolution, an intention needs nurturing, needs practice, and needs to be cultivated with self love and trust. 
Cultivation can sometimes be a climb- but all is worth it! 
Anyone want to share a 2020 intention?!

Our prayers go out to Australia during this current state of disaster as nearly 200 bushfires are still burning nationwide. With no end in sight, your help is needed now more than ever. Donate to @redcrossau, @wireswildliferescue, and @nswrfs to support the reported 6 million+ acres, 24 lives, and 1/2 billion animals (!!) lost so far to the tragedy. Our heart hurts for the people of Australia and the state of our global climate. If you’re interested in offsetting your carbon emissions, check out @communitycarbontreescostarica as they plant trees near the equator to absorb CO2 pollution in exchange for creating clean oxygen. They’re already planning to replicate their actions in Australia as soon as the fires are put out. #PrayForRain .

This is Starma Mazhari, a female Iranian snowboard champion and long-time supporter of B4BC. In a time of such hostility in the world, it's important to remember that a mutual love of boarding can always bring people together. 💓

You inspire us, Starma! Keep on shredding! 🤘

The first Full Moon + Lunar Eclipse of 2020, the Wolf Moon, arrives today and we're feeling her pull! This eclipse arrives in Cancer, the sign of the mother, reminds us to take care of ourselves, allow our emotions to exist, and embrace the shift this new decade is bringing. 2020 is calling on us individually and as a planet to gain a broader perspective and consider the wellbeing of all. So who's howling at the moon for a better 2020 with us tonight? 🌝
