Since this site started, for the last few years during the month of October I’ve traditionally posted throughout October on new products and promotions that help breast cancer awareness. Breast Cancer awareness, after all, is the charity that really got charity gifting and cause-related marketing booming in the first place.
This year I’ve been a little busy, but I didn’t want the month to end without a synopsis of some of the best deals and promotions I’ve seen this year for Breast Cancer Awareness month.
1. Organic Bouquet is donating 15% of the purchase price of select flowers and gifts to support charities that lead the fight against breast cancer during this month, National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Aside from Organic Bouquet’s contribution to National Breast Cancer Awareness Month related charities, their various charitable bouquets support women throughout the year by helping various charities that provide brighter and happier futures for women. Organic Bouquet employs over 60% females on their Certified Sustainable Farms in Ecuador and Colombia, providing zero-interest loans, childcare, healthcare, education, environmental protection and more to local workers. Additionally, the brand supports over 55 charities, including the BreastCancer.org, the Breast Cancer Fund, and the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation, year round through their Flowers for Good program.
3. Sparkling ICE is a fantastic brand of mountain spring water infused with refreshing fruit flavors, ranging from coconut pineapple to orange mango to pomegranate berry. As part of the Sparkling ICE mission to “Imagine a World Without Breast Cancer,” each year during the month of October, Sparkling ICE donates $.01 per bottle of its Pink Grapefruit flavor to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. Sparkling ICE works closely with each community to give proceeds directly back to the area where the product was purchased. Sparkling ICE, a beverage of Talking Rain Company, is also a Susan G. Komen Puget Sound Affiliate Promise Partner, the highest tier of recognition awarded to corporations, foundations, and 3rd party fundraising organizations or events that provide exceptional financial or in-kind resources throughout the year to the Komen Puget Sound Affiliate.
4. If you’ve seen a recent photo of Britney Spears sporting some pretty pink hair extensions, these are thanks to SHE by SO.CAP.USA, the world’s leading provider of all-natural hair extensions. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month, they’re hosting their national Pink Hair For Hope campaign during BOTH September and October, to raise funds in the hopes of finding a cure for breast cancer. Participating salons across the country who donate $10 or more to Pink Hair For Hope, will receive a 100% natural, pink SHE by SO.CAP.USA hair extension, where 100% of net proceeds from campaign go to the American Cancer Society. To date, the Pink Hair For Hope campaign has brought together more than 375 salons across the United States and successfully raised over $2 million dollars.
