Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Each year it is estimated that nearly 200,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. Approximately 1,700 men will also be diagnosed with breast cancer and 450 will die each year. Those are some pretty scary facts. That's why it's important to draw awareness to breast cancer research and how you can donate.

In honor of Breast Cancer Month I decided to do a post of lots of great companies who are donating a portion of proceeds to Breast Cancer Research!

Charm Factory has lots of really cute items in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. With any purchase in October, Charm Factory will include a free pink ribbon charm with your order - or you may choose to donate that charm to one of the many fundraisers who organize walks, auctions, golf tournaments and more. They will pass on all of the ribbons you donate directly to the women and men doing great work across the world to fight breast cancer.
In the Special Instructions box at checkout:
  • Type "PINK RIBBON" to automatically receive a free pink ribbon charm included in your order.
  • Type "DONATE" for your charm to automatically be sent to a fundraiser.
Cafe Press has a lot of great items in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. I'm really liking this water bottle. During the month of October, a portion of the proceeds of any breast cancer awareness item will be donated to breastcancer.org.
HipFusion Designs is seriously committed to helping end breast cancer. That’s why any time you purchase any of their “pink” jewelry designs, 50% of the purchase is donated to fight this devastating disease.

The limited edition “LIFE bracelet”  adds fun style to any woman’s wrist. The word “LIFE,” which is stamped on a silver clay tag, is a powerful and symbolic feature, while the silver heart charm and metallic pink leather band will add modest beauty to this signature item.

What is LIFE without LOVE? What is a bracelet without a necklace? Complete your look with the limited edition “Philly LOVE Necklace”. This casual yet symbolic design includes a silver clay tag stamped with Philly’s Love Park logo anchored on metallic pink leather.

Both pieces are collectible, stylish and made for each other…and affordable too! Both the bracelet and necklace are valued at $40 each. And 50% of each purchase is donated directly to Living Beyond Breast Cancer to help this inspiring organization provide education and support programs for women and families affected by breast cancer.

So here’s a way you can add a little bit of LOVE and LIFE to your everyday style  …and know that you’re actively participating in the fight to find a cure, and look fabulous doing it!

Under Armour's  Power in Pink Program celebrates the many women who use fitness and exercise in the fight against breast cancer. The program features real survivors in a national advertising campaign, countless partnerships with non-profit organizations, high school & collegiate Power in Pink games across the country, and their unique line of high-performing Power in Pink gear. Under Armour will donate 10% of all proceeds to various charities in support of breast cancer research.

 For every pair of shoes ordered on OKA b's online store during the month of October (using coupon code CountMeIn), they’ll deliver up to 50,000 pairs to patients currently undergoing treatment at cancer centers across the United States. Please help them in this fight by spreading the word in your local community, joining their Facebook community for updates, and sharing your own personal stories of how breast cancer has affected your life.

 And.... in honor of breast cancer awareness month, I decided to post this picture of a few of my friends and I out supporting the cause! We went a bar crawl in Wilmington, Delaware where all cover charge proceeds went to the fight against breast cancer :)
