Breast Cancer Awareness

October is breast cancer awareness month and there are so many things you can do to support the initiative. You can buy beauty products, jewelry, and even bake for a cause.  Here are some of my favorite ways to spread the word.

Bake it Happen is a fun way to spread the word and win a free ipad.  All you have to do is go to the www.bananasforboobies.com, download the recipe for Judy's Banana Chocolate Chip Loaf, bake it and spread the word by:

  • TWEET about your loaf using the hashtags:  #bakeithappen #b4b
  • PIN - your awesome loaf to your Pinterest board with hashtags #bakeithappen #bfb
  • POST - your awesome loaf to your own Facebook page w/ tag @bakeithappen 
  • Instagram your awesome loaf photos with hashtags #bakeithappen #bfb

I made it Sunday night and it was so delicious.  You can even print out stickers and give to friends as gifts or organize a bake sale at your school with proceeds going to the cause.

 

Wear It
Breastcancer.org - the world's most utilized online resource for medical and personal expert information on breast health and breast cancer - is partnering with celebrity favorite jewelry designer Chan Luu, a champion for women's health issues, to roll out a collection of bracelets as part of Think Pink, Live Green; Breastcancer.org’s Global Breast Cancer Prevention initiative. The introduction of Chan Luu’s 2013 collection marks the 3rd year of their partnership with Breastcancer.org. Since 2011, Chan Luu has been able to donate $330K which allowed the initiative to reach more than 300,000 women and girls and allows for the distribution of a step-by-step guide to reducing the risk of breast cancer.
 
Chan Luu will donate 50% of the net proceeds from these bracelets to Breastcancer.org. The bracelets are available through October.
  
ICU Eyewear Pink Ribbon Reader 
ICU Eyewear Pink Ribbon Reader was inspired by a breast cancer survivor and nurse who reached out to ICU Founder Patricia Keston in hopes of a stylish reader in support of the fight against breast cancer.  Moved by her passion and strength, Patricia designed the chic reader to feature a light pink interior frame with the Breast Cancer Ribbon in pink rhinestones at the corner of the eye. 10% of net proceeds on the Pink Ribbon Reader are donated to Breast Cancer Research. The Breast Cancer Awareness - Pink Ribbon Reader ($29.95) is available at www.icueyewear.com.
