Retailers that Give Back for Breast Cancer Awareness
Think pink this October
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and that means it's easier than ever to do your share and help support those companies that give back by donating a share of their profits to organizations that support breast cancer research and other initiatives such as breast reconstruction.
Here is a roundup of worthy companies that are doing good and making amazing products.
SPIbelt was founded by Kim Overton in 2006, and the company has created a specialty Pink Ribbon SPIbelt in honor of Breast Cancer Research. During the month of October, a portion of all proceeds from the Pink Ribbon SPIbelt will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. SPIbelt stands for "small personal item belt" and it's a discreet way to carry phones, keys and money while running or working out. The Pink Ribbon belt is $19.99.
This groundbreaking skin care line is another fabulous company giving back to support breast cancer awareness and breast reconstruction.
A favorite product is the innovative, multifunctional new Perfectionist 4-in-1 Cream, $50. It provides moisture, broad-spectrum sun protection, anti-aging properties and lightweight coverage in a single product.
A percentage of proceeds from the sales of any eraclea products, none of which are tested on animals, is donated to Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery (AiRS). The 501(c)(3) nonprofit was created to build awareness and to give women options for post-cancer breast reconstruction.
And in October, eraclea is donating an additional $5 for each ever-moist lip balm in the pink purchased. This great product is the same formula as the regular ever-moist lip balm, but with an additional of a touch of pink. It retails for $16 and will keep your lips soft and smooth.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Ann Taylor will donate 50% of the purchase price of each item sold from its limited edition jewelry collection from September 18, 2015 through December 31, 2015 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
The collection features a pendant necklace ($49.50) and charm bracelet ($59.50) with a variation of different emblems that tells a story with motivational, heartfelt meaning. From a delicate rose that represents love and honor, to the BCRF logo that represents an iconic symbol of strength, these emblems are sure to touch the hearts of all who wear them.
In March 2015, Jessica Diane partnered with Bright Pink® to inspire and encourage women to be proactive with their breast and ovarian health. To support Bright Pink, Jessica Diane will be donating 10% of every online sale and each online purchase will now include life-saving educational material.
A favorite is the Cali, a lovely caramel-colored crossbody clutch that retails for $375.
Global-inspired fashion jewelry brand Boho Betty is giving back for the entire month of October by donating 10% for any pink bracelet purchased to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Bracelets range from $29 - $143.
Designer Ben Freedland has created a ZINK pink vegan handbag for Breast Cancer Awareness Month and is donating 10% of proceeds of his blush bink boxcar handbag to the Seton Breast Care Center in Austin, Texas.
The bag, $98, is designed in an iconic silhouette crafted out of vegan materials to produce a bag that is simultaneously whimsical and classic. A rich Saffiano style finish, solid brass hardware and high quality canvas lining combine to make a vegan leather bag that is anything but average.
