Hope for a Cure

As y'all know, breast cancer awareness is a cause that is near and dear to my heart after my sweet mother in law was diagnosed with it last year.

I meant to have this post up earlier in the month, but my laptop & life got in the way-but you still have a few days to take advantage of these products that donate part of the purchase price to breast cancer research.

In the flavors Strawberry Sorbet & Wildberry, these moisturizing lip balm pods donate a portion of the purchase price to breast cancer research. These would also make great gifts for someone who is fighting or has beaten breast cancer because the packaging has uplifting words all over it!

This is one of my favorite products that I'm featuring, mostly because this is a heavenly scent but also because 100% of the proceeds from it go directly to breast cancer research. 100% is a huge deal, I highly recommend supporting this product!

Through the end of October when you add a pink monogram or icon to any item (I chose the bag because I thought it would be great for tossing books in for class, for a reusable shopping tote, or for a teacher bag!) a full 75% of the $6 personalization fee will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They have lots of cute items like vests, scarves, quarter-zips...the list is endless!
Start your Christmas shopping early and stock up on these pink monogrammed items for all of your favorite girls and support breast cancer research at the same time!

This deal lasts until the end of December, so you could really take advantage of this one for Christmas! 20% of the proceeds of this precious bracelet (perfect for stacking!) go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Lokai will donate $1 for each bracelet (& they're only $18 guys, that's a steal!) for each bracelet purchased before the end of October.
I think these are great for stacking and can be dressed up or down!
I've even seen guys wearing these in my hometown, so get one for you & your man!

A gorgeous, highly pigmented blush from Bobbi Brown (& it comes with the precious pink blush brush!) donates $12 from each purchase to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
Not only are you supporting a great cause, but you're getting a high quality makeup product that will last for a long, long time!

I've been thinking about upgrading to the iPhone 6 for a while now & you know I'll have to get a new, cute phone case.
This case from VV donates 30% of the proceeds to the Breast Cancer Alliance (purchase before the end of October!) and it's made in the USA, so support both causes!

I hope y'all enjoyed this little post &  I hope you choose to support this cause either by donating directly or purchasing some of these products! 
Or, just send up a simple prayer for all of those effected by this horrible disease.

Until next time. . .

  10. I think it is fabulous when brands donate a portion of their proceeds to a great cause. The Lokai bracelet is so cute!

  11. Very cool post!! I think this is such a great month to celebrate survivors, fighters, and anyone affected by this terrible disease--awareness is so key!


  12. BCA is extremely close to my heart, too. I lost my grandmother and my aunt battled it but fortunately is a survivor. My chiro told me something really great the other day... he said instead of fighting to find a cure, we should be fighting and taking care of ourself to never have to have cancer at all! We should be taking care of ourselves, getting checkups all of the time, all of that. We shouldn't have to go through cancer and be sick, we should do everything to prevent it! I really loved that he said that.


  13. I love shopping for a good cause and I didn't know about a lot of these brand collaborations. Thank you so much for sharing.

  14. Lokai bracelets are fantastic! I didn't know why were doing a pink one! That's too cool!

  18. Breast cancer is also near and dear to my heart because my mother was diagnosed and is now a survivor. Thank you for sharing these items, it's so wonderful to see all these companies supporting the fight against breast cancer.

  19. I love when brands support charities, especially cancer research! Thinking of you and your in-laws <3
