October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We’re asking you to join the fight against breast cancer by volunteering, donating or simply by shopping.
We love when we can shop for a cause, so here are some ideas for items that will support breast cancer research and foundations.
Fabulous Bags- Including the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back: eBags donates 10% of the retail sales price of any pink product to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Just look for the pink ribbon next to the product name. I want the Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back ($160 ) since I love Ju-Ju-Be’s hip, functional diaper bags. (Full review of Ju-Ju-Be here.)
Animal and Nature Print Sleepwear, Loungewear and Rainboots by Hatley: Hatley is donating 20% of every sale in October to Breast Cancer Awareness, so stock up on their fab clothing for moms, babies and children now. I adore their new “Apple of My Eye” infant coveralls ($26) and the matching rainboots ($50) for mommy.
If you wanted an excuse to buy luxurious and expensive cashmere products, White + Warren is donating 50% of the proceeds on its droolicious PINK products. But your bank account will need to be as big as your desire to help fight breast cancer since their PINK First Class Travel Wrap costs $275!
Beauty Essentials: Philosophy Shower for the Cure ($20), Tweezerman Tweezers ($25), Conair Hair Dryers and even Breast Cancer Awareness Band Aids are just some of the many Breast Cancer Awareness Products available at Drugstore.com.
Inspirational Jewelry: You can get Free Shipping on Orders Over $75 at RedEnvelope– including this gorgeous silver “Give Pink Message Rings Necklace” ($89.95). 10% of the sales on this product will be donated to Susan G. Koman For the Cure Foundation.
Mama Mio’s super-firming, sag fighting bust cream – Boob Tube ($38):
Celebs like Jessica Alba and ordinary people like Mamanista’s own Mama Mwah used Mama Mio’s award-winning bust cream during their pregnancies to keep things perky. Like a push-up bra in a cream, Boob Tube is rich in anti-oxidants and Omegas and helps your skin stay firm and elastic. $1 per Boob Tube sold during the month of October will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Enjoy free standard shipping with coupon code “freeship”.
Melange Apothecary Pink Logo Body Cream ($22): Melange Apothecary will donate 30% of all sales to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. The real treat of a Melange Apothecary Product is the unique fragrance. Blended with the finest essential oils, many of their fragrances are available nowhere else. Try the Peony & Violet fragrance (fragrant Peony flowers interlaced with sweet White Tea, fresh Violet and Lily of the Valley notes) or pick one of their custom blends.
Shopbop Breast Cancer Awareness Tees ($88):
These celeb-designed tees are a fashionable way to join the fight against cancer. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to The Breast Cancer Network of Strength. Available exclusively at Shopbop.
Karen Neuburger Pink Ribbon Chenille Lounge Socks ($15): Show your support and pamper your tootsies with embroidered pink ribbon socks by Karen Neuburger. Each purchase benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Or splurge by buying the Tickled Pink Boyfriend PJs ($72).
Crib Rock Couture & Decor Pink Flying Heart Wall Hook ($49.99):
For their baby girl, Jessica Alba and Cash Warren picked out the Flying Heart Wall Hook, sweet enough for a newborn girl and chic enough for a trendy teen. Want one too?

A New Stroller: A portion of each sale of the Schwinn 2008 Hope Swivel Stroller ($249 with free shipping) will be donated to Breast Cancer Research. Available at the Stroller Depot Stores.
