support awareness

In case you haven’t noticed the pink everything, everywhere, it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Not that you should only pay attention in October, but it’s like an annual reminder to encourage those who are battling, those who have battled, and those who must do all they can to avoid the battle, and anyone working to make the battle easier or just plain eliminated forever. Surely you fall into one or more of those categories. How many people do you know who have been impacted by breast cancer?

Merchants, vendors, advertisers, charities all over are doing their part to help you do your part. Shopping for beautiful things, for a beautiful cause. Beautiful indeed.

The Finest Accessories: 20% of sales from select accessories (not just pink!) goes to Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. The company also offers their generous Good Wishes Program to brave women fighting cancer.

Philosophy: 100% of proceeds from Shower for the Cure shower gel benefit breast cancer research

Nordstrom Fits America is a great event that combines personal bra fittings (you know you need one) with beautiful lingerie with a portion of proceeds benefitting the Susan G. Komen foundation.

OPI: limited edition Pink of Hearts nail polish in a perfect shade; OPI is donating $25,000 to Susan G. Komen Foundation and $5000 to Rethink Breast Cancer in Canada.

15% of the purchase price of these pretty Sonia Kashuk make-up brushes goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

A gift for you, a gift for your survivor, a gift for future survivors.

Kimberly day, making a home where the buffalo roam. By night, pretty much the same thing, punctuated by the occasional fantasies of sunny beaches, italian movies and sparkling lemonade.

    My Mom died of breast cancer at the age of 43.
    Every October I send my seester a gift package with all things Pink to remember our Mom. It's hard to come up with something new every year, so THANK YOU for this!
