Shop for Good - Breast Cancer Awareness Products 2012+ a giveaway

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and with breast cancer affecting so many people (not only the ones who are diagnosed with it, but their families) I think it's so important that we have a whole month dedicated to it. There are SO many companies (large and small business alike) donating money to various breast cancer organizations. But on the flip side, there are some just trying to make a quick buck. I was shopping last week and saw a cute reusable coffee tumbler with a breast cancer ribbon on it. Then I looked at the label and in the crazy tiny print it said "No money donated to breast cancer organizations." I was shocked, and wanted to point out a handful of businesses (my own included) donating funds to breast cancer.

Glitter and Gloss: 100% of the proceeds of The Mary Ann and The Shannon benefiting Bright Pink

L'Bel: 15% of October's proceeds will go the the Avon 3-Day Walk for Breast Cancer

Stella & Dot: Several products benefiting the Noreen Fraser Foundation. My particular favorites are the Bryant Scarf and the Luna Wrap Bracelet!

Mae B: 100% of October's proceeds donated to various breast cancer donations, and 15% of Mae's Mary Kay proceeds will be donated as well.

OPI is donating $25,000 to the Susan G. Komen foundation, and has an adorable limited edition set available!

babEblessings is donating half of the proceeds of THIS print to CIBC Run for a Cure.

Poofy Cheeks is donating 50% of her awesome set of pink hair ties to a local Making Strides for Breast Cancer team.

Shop my picks:

K. Slademade is donating 10% of the purchase price of every pale pink product to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

Nordstrom has lots of different brands donating proceeds to various Breast Cancer Awareness groups and charities. Check out some of the beauty brands HERE!

And last, but most definitely not least, Dr's Remedy has three gorgeous, good for your nails PINK shades, in which 10% of the proceeds from the sales of three pink shades to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, an organization who ensures that women who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, beyond treatment, at high risk or living with metastatic disease are well cared for by providing educational resources and support services relevant to their age at and stage of diagnosis. The shades are:

HOPEFUL Hot Pink: A Hello Kitty-meets bubble gum shade
NURTURE Nude Pink: A damsel-in-distress, barely there beautiful
PURITY Pink: A ballet slipper, sheer hue 

....and Dr's Remedy is generously giving a set to one of YOU! Dr's Remedy products are absolutely amazing, made with natural ingredients, and created by (you guessed it) two doctors.
