Did you know 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime? Scary stuff. Well, there’s no better time to think pink than now… because October is the official National Breast Cancer Awareness Month (NBCAM)!
NBCAM, established over 25 years ago, is essentially a collaboration of various non-profit groups, medical associations, and government organizations working toward a common goal of promoting awareness, providing resourceful information, and empowering women to take control of their breast health. So get involved! Simply donning a pink ribbon in your hair helps spread the word (and enables you to look adorable while doing it). Pick up a “Save the Tatas” bracelet for $1 or a “Fight Like a Girl” shirt for $15. Participate in the annual Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk in your area. I do this 5K every year with a group of friends; it’s completely free to walk and is a total blast– such an amazing thing to see a crowd of 25,000+ people, all in pink, walking and running (ew—you overachievers) for a common cause.
Oh, and it’s no secret that pink//breast cancer awareness items are as charming as they are charitable. Here are my favorite Power of Pink products for 2013– the proceeds from all of which benefit breast cancer research:
1. Anne Klein Breast Cancer Awareness Bracelet, $34 // 2. CLARISONIC Skincare Brush in BCA Pink, $159 // 3. Coach Signature Breast Cancer Awareness Eau de Toilette Limited Edition, $68 // 4. Brighton 2013 Power of Pink Bracelet, $60 // 5. Sephora Collection Together in Pink Hair Ties, $6 // 6. GlamGlow Cure Sexy Tingling & Exfoliating Mud Mask, $69 // 7. Essie Breast Cancer Awareness Pink, $7 // 8. Dooney and Bourke Pink Ribbon Tote, $58 // 9. Uni-Ball Pink Ribbon Gel Pen Pack of 12, $20.99 // 10. Tory Burch Limited Edition Umbrella- Pink T Print, $58 // 11. Estee Lauder Pink Ribbon Jeweled Pin, $12.50 // 12. Bobbi Brown “French Pink” Breast Cancer Awareness Collection Blush, $45 // 13. Bloomingdale’s Little Pink Bag, $20 // 14. Tory Burch Shop for a Cure Skinny Multi-Way Scarf, $75 // 15. Clinique Pink with a Purpose Set, $15 // 16. Coach for a Cause It’s Charming Key Ring, $58
I’ve decided to give away my personal favorite item, Bloomingdale’s Little Pink Bag, worth $20. $2 from the sale of each bag goes to BCRF! The giveaway starts today and ends at midnight on October 18th. Enter below!
These aren’t even all of my favorites, which is nuts. For my complete list of amazing Breast Cancer Awareness benefactors, view my Pretty with a Purpose Pinterest board. Is it just me, or did Sephora really step it up with their Breast Cancer Awareness stash? Who knew there were GlamGlow pink edition mud masks?! Also, if one of you could call my mom and let her know that I want us to have matching Power of Pink Brighton bracelets, that’d be great. What are your favorite ways to show you love your ta-tas?
What a great post! My favorite item would probably be the Bobbi Brown blush and the Little Pink Bag from Bloomindale's, but all of the products are lovely! Who could turn down cute pink packaging?
Right?! It's precious! I want it all!

My favorite is the Tory Burch Limited Edition Umbrella- Pink T Print. Thanks.
I love it, too! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
My favorite is number 2. I would love to have that Clarisonic skin machine.
The Clarisonic is a GOD-SENT for my skin! Having a BCA edition doesn't hurt either 🙂 Happy Thursday!
I always love seeing the breast cancer awareness merchandise when it hits stores. My mother-in-law lost her battle with breast cancer, while my grandma is a breast cancer survivor. Such a great "thing" to support.
Great post and giveaway. 🙂 I like a lot of the options, but my fav is the "/ 2. CLARISONIC Skincare Brush in BCA Pink, $15"
All those items are really great. But I especially love the pink nail polish. It is really cool and a fashionable way of supporting the fight for breast cancer.
