In honor of our new Woman of Style & Inspiration, Shanna Clarke-Pinet, and all of the other strong women & men fighting breast cancer, I am doing a post each day this week to bring awareness to breast cancer research. We MUST find a cure!
Every October, you see lots of pink products. But I always wonder, which companies actually donate money to help with research? And which companies donate all of the retail price and/or net proceeds? I found a few that donate 100 percent of the retail price and/or net proceeds. Read below for more about these products & companies. One of these companies has donated more than $12 million to breast cancer research since 1994!
1. Estee Lauder Modern Muse Solid Perfume Compact: Estee Lauder says it will donate 100 percent of the retail price to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. According to the foundation, Estee Lauder has donated more than $12 million since it became a partner with BCRF in 1994. Amazing!! The cost of the perfume compact is $49.50.
2. Stella & Dot Strength Bracelet: Stella & Dot says 100 percent of the net proceeds through October benefit the Noreen Fraser Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for women's cancer research and creating awareness of the importance of early detection. The bracelet is $39.
3. Philosophy Shower for the Cure: Philosophy says it donates 100 percent of the net proceeds from the sale of this product to the Women's Cancer Research Fund. It costs $20.
4. Evelyn Lauder Dream Pin: This pin was created to honor Evelyn Lauder's dream of eradicating breast cancer in our lifetime. This elegant pin helps you to show your support and raise awareness. Estee Lauder will donate 20 percent of the purchase price of $12.50 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation through June of 2015.
