Every October beauty and fashion labels alike, join forces to draw awareness to a problem threatening women around the globe. Needless to say, in October we wear pink & we wear it proud!
Now, don't hate me for pointing this out, but more often than not I find "think pink" product a little dull– definitely pink, but not entirely on trend. Bear with me, if this wasn't a fashion blog, this wouldn't matter one bit, but I feel a sense of obligation to only point you toward product I myself would purchase (plus, you can always go online and make a donation directly to the charity of your choice, so shopping pink isn't your only means for helping out).
That being said, this month I kept an eye out for clever product & fresh ideas that would allow me to give back & enjoy my purchases! It being the last week of October, this is your final chance to hop in on some of these limited edition products, and you can shop them directly through the links below.
But that's not all, I also found an incredibly practical way to support the charity of your choice year round...
Perhaps you've already hear of Amazon Smile, but I only recently discovered it & am highly impressed! Amazon Smile is perhaps the most practical way to provide the charity of your choice with year-round support, and all you have to do is keep shopping as normal. To set this up, simply visit http://smile.amazon.com and select your charity, then bookmark the site for convenience.
From this point on, every time you make a purchase through the "smile" side of amazon.com, Amazon will send a portion of that purchase to your designated charity. This shopping option simply makes sense, and there's really no reason not to use it.
Personally, my account is set to support Bright Pink, the only national non-profit focused on the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women, while providing support for high-risk individuals, and while I highly recommend them, you are welcome to choose outside of the October theme.
