NFL players are wearing pink socks and sweatbands. National “No Bra” Day just passed on October 2nd, and light pink ribbons tied on things everywhere. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, a worthy cause that everyone should get behind. I’ve rounded up five awesome ways (lots of eating and shopping!) through which you can help spread Breast Cancer Awareness and contribute to Breast Cancer Research Foundation!
- Trudeau Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) Collection
A favorite brand for water bottles, travel mugs and tumblers, Trudeau has come out with a special BCRF Collection and will donate a percentage of each sale to the BCRF. I’ve been attached to my “Lulu SS Tumbler” (I LOVE drinking tea all throughout the day) because it has such a comfortable grip and is the perfect size to carry around with me when I’m on-the-go. It is also incredibly insulating and I find my beverages to still be boiling hot even an hour after pouring them! The Trudeau Corporation has already donated over $450,000 to BCRF from the sale of their BCRF products! Prices vary per product, but the collection can be found at retailers including Wegmans, BedBathandBeyond.com and Amazon.com!
- Duri Cosmetics “The Power of Pink” Nail Polish Collection
The awesome nail polish collection features many shades of pink, including “Pinky
Promise,” “Pink Positive Thoughts,” “I Pink I Can,” and “Pink Warrior.” I had the chance to try them out and love them! The nail polish stays on for over a week, even without a top coat! Ten percent of the collection’s sales will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They retail for $6 each and can be found here!
- Little Black Dress Wines
Not only are Little Black Dress Wines adorably packaged, but they’re DELICIOUS. As if an awesome and different wine for girl’s night wasn’t enough to make you want to head to the site and order some, LBD Wines have teamed up with the global non-profit, Keep A Breast Foundation which supports Breast Cancer Awareness! Their “Divalicious Pink Pinot” is divine and a must-have for any (and all) occasions this fall!
- Ralph Lauren Pink Pony
As I mentioned in my last post, Ralph Lauren has been truly generous to Breast Cancer Research. The Pink Pony Collection is just as sophisticated as the classic RL Collection, yet 25% of the proceeds go towards the BCRF. The collection includes clothing, accessories and fragrances and can be found here!
- P.F. Chang’s
This post wouldn’t be complete without some delicious food! P.F. Chang’s has set out on a nationwide fundraising campaign to donate $100,000 to the American Cancer Society! They donate $1 for each diner who shares a photo of P.F. Chang’s new Jicama Street Tacos or the signature P.F. Chang’s white horse statues on social media with the hashtag #PFChangsPink. We all Snapchat our delicious and photogenic meals anyway, and now we can help others by doing so!
Giving back to others is one of the best ways to stay classy! xx
P.S. Stay tuned for a Trudeau BCRF Giveaway in the next few days!!
