This October, start shopping to make a difference!
October is breast cancer awareness month, so get a head start on buying pink products and clothes that support breast cancer research and treatment. Some companies carry breast cancer awareness products all year long, while others offer products exclusively in the month of October — and all of them support the search for a cure.
This tote bag from Michael Kors supports a good cause in a fashionable way. It is made from ecru canva,s and sports a Breast Cancer Research Foundation ribbon charm. Fifty percent of the proceeds from these totes is donated to the BCRF.
Tote Bag | $68 | Available at Michael Kors
Work out in style! New Balance’s Lace Up for the Cure line is affordable and stylish — and the company donates an annual minimum of $500,000 to the BCRF, as well as five percent of the product’s retail value. This line is in all different shades of pink, but don’t be fooled by the color because the clothing and shoes are strong.
