Every October we see a barrage of pink products designed to raise awareness of and funds for breast cancer research. A noble endeavour to be sure, but we also want to know where our money is going, and how much of it is making it to the various charities and organizations that are not only working towards a cure, but also to helping women who have already been diagnosed. Here, we’ve rounded up the ways you can put your money where your heart is, and shop for a cause this month.
Rethink Breast Cancer
Although Rethink Brest Cancer partners with many brands for the month of October, the brand’s own line of goods it worth celebrating. Called Give-A-Care, the products are useful”as well as cheekily named”and aim to help women diagnosed with breast cancer through the daunting process. The best part? 100% of the sales go back into the charity. Some of our favourite products include lemon candies that mask the metallic taste of chemo, headache balm, lube to help with early menopausal symptoms and even a children’s book to help with difficult family conversations. This month, #GiveACare.
