October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a campaign created to spread awareness about the disease and raise money for research dedicated to fighting it. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the pink ribbon, the official symbol of the fight against breast cancer.
This month, a number of companies are participating in the breast cancer awareness campaign, too. And the campaigns aren’t just for women — men are invited to take up the breast cancer awareness cause, too. Check out all the opportunities to shop for a great cause and help support research and support for the 252,710 breast cancer diagnoses estimated this year.
Check out the companies showing their support for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
1. SnowEx and Fisher Engineering‘s collaboration on limited edition pink-colored snow plows and arm lifts.
Fisher will donate $100 from the sale of each pink XV2 v-plow and $50 from the sale of each pink lift arm kit to the Maine Breast Cancer Coalition, where purchasers can choose to make the donation in memory of a person that has been affected by breast cancer.
2. Megabus‘ breast cancer awareness bus!
The affordable transportation company’s contest will donate $1 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation for every entry. The prize: a vacation of a lifetime to a lucky winner (and 70 close friends) in a pink bus!
3. Skechers “YOU” line.
The comfort shoe company is getting in the action in a few helpful ways. First, they’re selling limited edition fitness gear for breast cancer awareness month for men and women. Plus, the company is running a program retail stores this month where customers can round up purchases to the nearest dollar and donate the change to the American Cancer Society.
Stop by your local participating Panera to get a nosh before it’s too late! A portion of the proceeds from every purchase will be donated to breast cancer research.
5. S’well‘s breast cancer awareness water bottles.
The water bottle company partnered with Swarovski for the Swarovski Brilliance Jolie, a limited-edition bottle encrusted with over 6,000 pink crystals and adorned with a white crystal Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. 100% of net profits from the bedazzled bottle sales will go to the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Fair warning: the Swarovski bottle’s price is a whopping $1,500. If you can’t swing that cost, the company is donating 20% of the purchase price the Bikini Pink bottles to the BCRF, too.
The cosmetics company released a special Pink Ribbon collection under the Lauder name, plus several other of the cosmetic giant’s brands created limited-edition products, too, including Bobbi Brown’s pink peony illuminating bronzer set, Clinique’s jumbo-sized moisturizing lotion, and Origin’s Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask. Look good, feel even better about helping.
Modeled by the one and only Alicia Keys, the fashion label’s goal for the campaign is to shed light on breast cancer awareness for women of color, who lack access to early detection programs and education about the disease.
