Think Pink in October and Support Breast Cancer Research

Once again October is upon us and it's the month to Think Pink and open up the wallet to support the various Breast Cancer foundations (the National Breast Cancer foundation and McGrath foundation being 2 dedicated breast cancer funds) with its endeavours to fund research and support those affected by breast cancers. Having been touched by cancer in my family, this cause is always close to my heart.

So instead of telling you to buy some pretty pink merchandise offered on the streets, school or workplace to take part in the fundraiser, I'd like to encourage you to donate online directly to the National Breast Cancer foundation so that every cent of your dollar is fully utilised to find a cure for breast cancer.

However, if you have to buy something - a birthday gift perhaps for the October babies, then might I tempt you with these luscious offerings by the following beauty brands who are huge supporters of Pink Ribbon Day (Friday October 25th 2013)? In fact you might even want to indulge and buy these for yourself and feel good that you're contributing towards the cause.
