Think Pink, Shop Pink: Benefiting Breast Cancer Awareness

We’re asking you to think pink and shop pink during October because this month is national breast cancer awareness month.

We love when we can shop for a cause, so here are some ideas for items that will support breast cancer research and foundations.

Mobile Edge Komen Pink Milano

Faux crocodile makes a chic carrying case for your laptop.

Keep yourself healthy, because you have places to be, mama.

Plus shop October 7-9 for a great sale AND free shipping on orders $24+ through December 31.

Target Goes Pink

Stop by Target and search “Breast Cancer Awareness” and you’ll see that this retail giant that made style affordable also has a heart.

It is hard to choose just one item, but on my wish list are the tool kit (a girl should know how to use her tools – $29.99), kitchen aid stand mixer (life is too short to eat bad food – $299.99), pink ribbon robe (soft and comfy – $49.99), and assorted gardening tools (missing my herb garden). They even have post-it notes ($9.99) so no one forgets to get a mammogram. Oh, and there’s always that amazing Pink Dyson.

A portion of the proceeds from each stroller is going directly to the Virginia Commonwealth University’s Massey Cancer Center.

BUY: This one has been selling out all over the ‘net, but you can still get the Baby Jogger Limited Edition City Single stroller Pink at Jogging Strollers ($349).

The Tunes Company Breast Cancer Awareness Burnout Tee

A little steep for a t-shirt, but the design is hot and it is for a good cause–a portion of sales will go to the Susan G Komen Foundation. If you like to wear your heart on your sleeve (and your ribbon on your chest), and you always have the hippest maternity wear, check out this tee.

BUY: This Pink Ribbon Tee ($95) is from a pea in the pod.

    Yes, Breast Cancer can be decreased with ealy detection. Although many women do what they should,.. ie mammograms, self exams and dr. exam and are still diagnosed with Breast Cancer.. To educate some people- not all Breast Cancer comes in the form of a noticeable lump. It can appear in the form of calcifications, or intraductal to name a few.. It can be detected early but not nessecarily prevented.. Very important to follow all 3 ways to detect otherwise your chances of catching this disease early is strongly deminised..
