So, I wasn’t planning on putting out another blog post until next month as I’m taking a tiny bit of time “off”, but the month of October is pretty important as it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As a woman with two boobies, and the mother of two girls, supporting Breast Cancer Awareness is something that I’ve always felt very strongly about.
With Breast Cancer Awareness Month in full swing, you won’t be able to walk into a store this month without seeing pink products or pink ribbons all over. Each year during the month of October, I always try to make sure I purchase some pink products to support a cause that affects so many women and the people who love them. It wasn’t until recently that I really thought about where my money was going when I make those purchases. I want to make sure that the products I am buying aren’t just spreading awareness, but are also giving back! I’ve gathered a list of just some of companies that are offering fantastic Breast Cancer Awareness products and are donating some or all of the proceeds back to breast cancer research.
FIFTEEN amazing beauty brands have joined together to raise funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Brands like Bobbi Brown, Clinique, Smashbox, Origins and Bumble and Bumble (just to name a few) are offering lotion, makeup, perfume, moisturizer and so many other fantastic products and donating a portion of the proceeds.The amount donated varies depending on which product you purchase. If you purchase the Bobbi Brown Art Stick Duo for example, $10 of your purchase will be donated.
Vera is back this year with another limited edition print, Art Poppies. All proceeds from the sale of this print will be donated to the Vera Bradley Foundation for Breast Cancer. This print is available in your favorite style Vera bags and accessories.
