Shop for a Cause: Support Breast Cancer Awareness Month
As you probably already know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month. An annual health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research to the cause, prevention and cure.
I surfed the web and gathered my favorite top ten products that support the fight against breast cancer:
White House Black Market Give Hope Tote
WHBM has a small collection in honor of breast cancer awareness month: shirts, jewlery and bags. My favorite is this adorable tote! The all-black tote features a unique hand designed rose print, crystal-studded satin bow, and a silvertone chain handle laced with black ribbon. $50 at WHBM!
A portion of the net proceeds from the Give Hope Collection, up to $250,000, will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national, non-profit organization dedicated to empowering all women affected by breast cancer to live as long as possible with the best quality of life. To learn more visit lbbc.org.
Event: RUE LA LA Shop For Good Event!
Rue La La will donate 10% of retail sales from this event to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation! BCRF is dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure in our lifetime by funding clinical and translational research worldwide. There will be tons of amazing items at this event: designer shoes, bags, watches, jewelry, scarves, you name it. It’s a great chance to get some cute stuff while donating at the same time.

Mrs. B mentioned this shirt in her post the other day and I was hooked. This limited edition tee, designed by Donna Karan, is available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue where 100% of the price will go to BCRF. Retail $35.
Elizabeth Hurley Clutch by Aspinal of London
Elizabeth Hurley bag created exclusively for Aspinal. Each handmade bag is available in a high-gloss Italian shine and (my fav) gold snake leather. Each bag is labelled with a pink leather label and is exclusively numbered so you know exactly which bag has been made for you. Also, each bag comes with a gorgeous pink bijou hand mirror stamped with The Cancer Research Foundation logo and Elizabeth’s signature.
The bag retails for $445 at Aspinal and with each purchase Aspinal of London will donate a whopping $150 to the Breast Cancer Relief Foundation.
Simply Vera Vera Wang Sequin Coin Purse
How frikin adorable are these little coin purses?! And they only retail for $10 at Kohl’s! Girly ruffles or flashy sequins.. plus 100% of the net profit from the sale of this item will support the fight against breast cancer!
Lacoste Graphic Shopping Bag
I Love Lacoste! Why? Because they’re donating 10% from the sale of this bag (and other items) to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, dedicated to preventing breast cancer and finding a cure. This tote would be great as a school book bag, shopper tote, gym bag or even a simple extra carry-along. Retails for $60 at Lacoste
Made Her Think Breast Cancer Awareness Talon Necklace
Made Her Think will donate 50% of the proceeds from this necklace to Breast Cancer Network of Strength, an organization whose mission it is to ensure, through education and advocacy, that no one faces breast cancer alone.
This beyond lovely little rose gold-plated ball-chain necklace features a textured talon pendant and measures 18″ long. Pendant is 1.75″ long. You’ll find it exclusively at Shopbop for $78
Betsey Johnson Breast Cancer Awareness Tote
Because I know there are a few of you who love Betsey Johnson and also happen to love Marilyn Monroe, here’s a bag just for you! The Breast Cancer Awareness Tote is a Limited edition from the BJ 2010 Breast Cancer Awareness collection. Each tote retails for $75 and is available at BJ where a portion of the proceeds will support two of Betsey’s favorite charities: the National Breast Cancer Coalition Fund and the Weill Cornell Breast Center of the Iris Cantor Women’s Health Center at New York-Presbyterian Hospital, where Betsey herself was treated.
