More program-promoting products of October Breast Cancer Awareness Month that’ll leave you tickled pink:
Happy First "Survivor Chick" Tee (www.happyfirst.com) - $34
Founded by cancer survivor Debbie Vinyard, this shirt and line overall is designed to encourage cancer victims, survivors, and really everyone to enjoy each moment, keep a positive attitude, and start each day being “Happy First” and then making it last. The 100% ringspun cotton jersey Survivor Chick tee is cute and comfy. It's generous in the sizing - a woman's cut versus junior - but is still feminine and tapered with a V neckline. It comes in both lilac and lavender and sizes, ranging from small to 2X.
Happy First is donating 15% of all sales of this "Survivor Chick" design to Breast Impressions, which funds education, prevention, and research and also makes “castings” for women before they have surgery to create a lasting memory.
UniqueVintage.com Scarves (www.unique-vintage.com) - $25-$28
There is something quite romantic about vintage clothing and accessories. It's probably the mystery of their unknown origins coupled with the uniqueness of each item. How drab it is to look like everyone else in the era of mass production. This is why I love Unique-Vintage, which hand selects distinctive designer vintage clothing items and accessories – unique and classic retro pieces from the 50’s and 60’s that will add a unique and interesting twist to your wardrobe. The company’s Pink Pom Pom scarf is one such item. This statement scarf, made of 100% cotton and measuring 82x26, is perfect for accessorizing a t-shirt or blouse. Unique-Vintage’s Mauve Pom Pom Crinkle Scarf is also retro glam with alternating sections of pom poms and crinkle cotton fabric.
During the month of October, 20% of the proceeds of these scarves will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, which helps provide free mammograms for women in need to promote early breast cancer detection
LipSense “Kiss for a Cause” Lip Color (www.SeneGence.com) - $22
LipSense long-lasting liquid lip color is unlike any conventional lipstick, stain, or color. These kiss-proof, smudge-proof and lead-free colors, manufactured without animal testing, stay on for up to 12 hours and are available in over 50 shades. LipSense shades can be combined to create hundreds of custom color possibilities. The company’s limited edition “Kiss for a Cause” is a fantastic fuchsia hue sure to perk up your pout.
In honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, through October 31, 2011, SeneGence International is donating 5% of the wholesale price from every tube of the limited-edition “Kiss for a Cause” LipSense to the American Breast Cancer Foundation for a minimum of $1,000 dollars.
Ford Strengh of Warrior Tee (www.shopwarriorsinpink.com) - $20
Show strength and conviction in the fight against breast cancer with this Strength of a Warrior statement tee. Black super-soft jersey material is complimented by the worn texture of the burnout design. Gray, white, and pink WARRIOR text and graphic symbols duly empowers and inspires the wearer and onlookers alike.
To date, Ford has dedicated more than $110 million to the breast cancer awareness cause. 100% of net proceeds of this item - $12.55 each - will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
