Chances are, you are connected in some way to a woman who has or is suffering from breast cancer. The American Cancer Society estimates 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in their lifetime. With October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, it’s the perfect time to think about what you can do to support nonprofits and foundations that support this cause that affects so many of us.
Every October, there are tons of organizations with products that give back to various nonprofits that support breast cancer research, awareness and more. This year is no different, and for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation in particular, purchases on anything from tennis rackets and sunglasses, to purses and blenders give back to the cause.
The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign, founded in 1992, has raised more than $53 million to support global research, education and medical services; with nearly $42 million funding 166 Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) research projects worldwide over the past 20 years. These funds come from employee activities and donations, as well as Pink Ribbon Product sales from their brands.
Today, we’re sharing some “pink” beauty items available from The Estee Lauder Companies, all of which you can purchase now – and give back to BCRF with.
