October is time to Think Pink

Each October, I like to feature  a number of products that support 
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

     20% of the $65 price                                 This Breathe tank from Gap will keep you
    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.
 PIER 1 CANDLE, $15. This blossom-filled candle from Pier 1 features its exclusive Floral Blossom fragrance and comes in a frosted glass holder with a flocked flower design. Pink ribbon pin is also included. 25% of the purchase price of each candle benefits Komen for the Cure. Available at all Pier 1 Imports stores.
              NEEDHAM LANE SASHA PAJAMAS, $58. Made of soft 100% cotton poplin, Needham Lane pajamas get softer with every washing.  PJs have button-front top with notched collar and side vents at hem for a comforting fit. 15% of proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Available at
                                                 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
