October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month! According to Pink Ribbon Pakistan – a charity organisation dedicated to raising awareness and providing treatment to breast cancer patients in Pakistan – 40,000 lives are lost each year due to this disease. This month is dedicated to supporting breast cancer charities and raising awareness, as well as donating in any way possible. Many brands release products or hold campaigns during October for this important cause, so we’ve listed 5 easy ways that you can help make a difference!
Make A Donation
The best way to support breast cancer research is to donate directly to the cause, and Shaukat Khanum’s breast cancer awareness campaign is devoted to helping patients who need support. They have a variety of activities that you can participate in, such as the Pink Tea Party, a walkathon, cooking competition, and more! Or click the link below to donate directly to the cause.
This adorable badge from Hoops And Clay reminds you that no matter the trials and tribulations of the disease, all patients are brave and strong! All profits from this badge are donated to breast cancer organisations and breast cancer patients. You can support a good cause and look cute while doing so!
Pink Ribbon Blemish Paste
Not only can you support an amazing cause with this purchase, you can beat those pesky breakouts too! This blemish paste from Scienta Beauty is a great product formulated with zinc oxide to target acne issues. It is packaged in an adorable pink jar, and the best part is 100% of profits are donated to the Pink Ribbon Foundation!
Peony Coffee Cup
We love this cute pink cup from Stojo, as it fits perfectly in our cup holder and is ideal for carrying a morning coffee, smoothie, or whatever you’d like! During October, if you purchase this cup in the vibrant peony colour, 25% of the proceeds will be donated to Living Beyond Breast Cancer.
