  Look Fabulous AND Help Fund Breast Cancer Awareness and Research

This morning I went to a fun Breast Cancer Awareness Month Kick-off Breakfast at the local Brighton Collectibles store. They are donating portions of their profits from the sales of this bracelet to Breast Cancer Charities.

Brighton has Think Pink events scheduled all over the US during the month of October and this link will show you the schedule.

The Dennison Pump, by Nine West raises funds for the Strang Cancer Prevention Center in New York City. It's available in several colors including, of course, pink.

New Balance will donate $5 to the Komen Foundation for every $25 purchase of Pink Ribbon merchandise. A few of the items that you can see here are the Pink Ribbon Bootleg Workout Pants, $44; Kinetic Jacket, $65; W801 Slide, $55; and Pink Ribbon Visor, $14; all by New Balance.The company will donate a maximum of $125,000.

The cute Ribbon Tank is $30, at www.lctq.com. Twenty percent of proceeds will benefit the Young Survival Coalition.

Of course, the Ford Breast Cancer Scarf designed by Lily Pulitzer is $35 at www.bloomingdales.com. Eighty-five percent of each sale will benefit the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

And, finally, Estee' Lauder has launched their book "An Eye For Beauty", a new book of Evelyn Lauder's latest photographs of the natural world, each of which is imbued with optimism and a celebration of nature's capacity for healing. All proceeds from the sale of this book will go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
