As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and many companies are showing their support and donating to the cause in awesome ways. Even as I watched football (yes I love football!) it’s great to see the players wearing pink and black gloves and towels as they take to the field. Beauty and fashion companies are no different. Because they are soo many participating in the fight to end Breast Cancer, it made sense for me to give you ladies a round of up for just some of the companies doing their part!
Breast cancer affects men just as much as women and Lab series feels that everyone should show their support. That’s why they are incasing their Daily Moisture Defense Lotion SPF 15 for men in a special sleeve with the BCA Pink Ribbon. Not only will this Lab Series for Men still keep giving men same all-day hydration that a man’s skin needs with this lotion, they are also donating $10,000 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
American Eagle Outfitters
For the entire month of October, aeri, the lingerie line by American Eagle Outiffiters will be donating a portion of their proceeds for all of their bra sales to Bright Pink. a national non-profit organization that provides education and support to young women who are at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer. You can purchase these bright pink bras at www.aerie.com.
Part of fighting this disease is awareness and what better way to do that than to use the social media platforms you use every day! That’s why Estee Lauder is inviting everyone to visit their Facebook page and make their Breast Cancer Awareness pledge. Once you have, please share with all your friends as well as see what others have pledged to do this month. I’ve already pledged to wear a pink ribbon this month so make sure you make your pledge known to the world!
This beauty website who takes a very healthy approach to beauty is celebrating BCA month by discussing the social, emotional, and economical effects of breast cancer on their blog. Their stories will talke about topics such as the state of Breast Cancer Research, early detection and lifestyle changes that are thought to lower the risk of breast cancer.
Like I said, this is just a snippet of the many companies supporting BCA this month. Even if you don’t participate in any of these, just make sure you support this cause in any way you can!
