Before we start planning our supportive shopping spree, let’s take a few minutes to watch this video that accompanies Kal Hourd‘s inspirational song “When Pink Is Just A Color Again“…
…Did you love it? I did.
As I’m sure you know, we are in the midst of Breast Cancer Awareness Month! You’ve heard the statistics, you’ve seen the destructive path that Breast Cancer carves into the lives of families every single day, now it’s your chance to help! Yes, of course you could write a check to a charitable organization of your choice and call it a day. But there are so many brands that have stepped up to the plate in an attempt to do their part too, so why not help them help others? It’s #ShoppingForACause, people, so grab your pinkest purse and let’s go!
We’ll start with some pink primping…Makeup maven Bobbi Brown has created a Limited Edition Pink Ribbon Collection that will fit perfectly into every girl’s lip color queue. Over 20% of proceeds from this lipstick/lip gloss duo will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, and, as an added bonus, Bobbi is offering free shipping on all orders that include this sensational set. Every leading lady needs a luscious lip color, and by purchasing this one you’ll be taking part in the effort to help all those leading ladies who are fighting for their lives.
Next we’ll stop for a little sweet treat…EdibleGiftsPlus.com has baked up an Edible Pink Ribbon Treats collection that looks scrumptious. Isn’t this an adorable way to brighten the day of someone you know who is battling Breast Cancer?! Edible Gifts will be donating 10% of every single sale of their Pink Ribbon products to BreastCancer.org…and there’s quite the selection! From marshmallows to “cookie cards,” everyone’s sweet tooth will be more than satisfied with these goodies!
Let’s top it off with a little bling, shall we? Designer Chan Luu has initiated a “Think Pink. Live Green” campaign in celebration of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and her philanthropic efforts stand out from the crowd. With three exclusive bracelet styles featuring (appropriately) pink and green, Chan Luu is going to donate an astounding 50% of all sales of these to BreastCancer.org! Each of Chan’s pieces “celebrates the sublime power of personal expression to enhance our daily lives,” a sentiment we should all keep in mind when sending positive thoughts to the thousands of women (and men!) who forcefully push Breast Cancer out of their lives every day.
Let’s be honest, you’re going to go shopping no matter what. So, this month especially, make the effort to buy from brands that are giving back! Remember, even the smallest action can help make a difference.
Hundreds of other brands and organizations have announced Pink Ribbon campaigns for this October…which ones have you found most notable?
