breast cancer charities. It is a cause near and dear to my own heart.
As many manufacturers have jumped on board with the pink
momentum, sometimes it's difficult to know if your purchase will
truly have an impact. I've found some goodies that actually benefit
charities that make a difference in breast cancer research and assist
those going through treatment.
The Breast Cancer Research Foundation ( BCRF) founded by Evelyn
Lauder of Estee Lauder cosmetics. It's mission is " to prevent and cure
breast cancer by advancing the world's most promising research." 88%
of funds raised go to research and 5% goes towards awareness. Each year
a wide variety of products come out in pink and benefit BCRF. It's a
win-win when you purchase these items.
100% of the retail cost on this Estee Lauder product goes to BCRF.
The Pink Perfection Color Collection is a travel case with best selling
shades of eye shadows, blush and lipstick for $35.
A duo of lip pencils, one in a neutral &
the other in true pink from Bobbie Brown
benefit BCRF with $10 from every purchase
$50 for the set
of this Tory Burch embossed leather cool and dry while 15% of the $22.95
i phone case in rose gold will benefit BCRF price goes toward BCRF
The Susan G Komen For the Cure Breast Cancer Foundation is another worthy
charity that has been raising funds for research. Since 1982 it has funded $899 million
for research. It supports those with the fewest resources who are unable to access care
to get the care they need. It works in communities providing education and awareness
about breast cancer.
Pier 1 Imports has a special floral blossom candle that provides 25%
the $15 price to Komen for the Cure.
These 100% cotton poplin pj's get softer with each
washing. Needham Lane will donate 15% of each pair
to Komen for the Cure. $58
$25,000 from the sale of OPI's Pink of Hearts
will go to Komen
