I’m a little late in posting about Breast Cancer Awareness month but with two weeks to go, there’s still plenty that you can do to support this very worthwhile campaign - and there could be something in it for you too…
Throughout October 2014, Jo Malone London will be donating £20 to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation’s UK research grants from every UK sale of its Red Roses Cologne 100ml.
Clinique, a long term supporter of BCA, will donate £2 from purchases of these two dedicated products to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. Choose from Power with Pink, an exclusive shade of Long Last Lipstick with a pretty pink carrying case, or a special edition of reformulated Dramatically Different Moisturiser and Clinique signature hearts key chain, available online only at clinique.co.uk
The Haven is a support centre for breast cancer patients, which provides one to one support to anyone affected by breast cancer - from complementary therapies to emotional support and advice services. A number of leading brands have designed exclusive products for The Haven, of which a significant portion of sales throughout October will go towards supporting the charity. My favourites are Alex Monroe’s ‘Haven’ necklace and Zandra Rhodes wash bag; all profits from these two will go to the charity. The full range is available here (including a pink Kitchen Aid!).
Birchbox has partnered with CoppaFeel! for all the info you need to spot the early signs and symptoms of breast cancer. This month’s box contains a selection of pretty in pink beauty goodies from brands including Balance Me, Meaningful Beauty and Pixi Beauty. Find out more about both here.
One of my local charities, Cancer Focus NI is encouraging us all to organise a Girls’ Night In towards a target £40,000 to help fund the next important stage of their research - clinical trials with women at risk. This research has the potential to make an enormous difference to the lives of many local women. The Girls’ Night In could have any theme - from a PJ party to a glam cocktail evening… further info and Pink Party Packs are available here. This applies to N.Ireland only but there’s no reason why you couldn’t do the same and support a local cancer charity wherever you are!
