Pink products for October

October is breast cancer awareness month and every year more and more pink products are showing up to benefit breast cancer organizations. Below are a few of our favorites for 2009. Also, stay tuned for October 21, Captivate Network’s spotlight day on breast cancer awareness.

First off we have Piggy Paint, a natural, eco-friendly nail polish created for girls. Their unique water-based formula is non-toxic and hypoallergenic, but dries to a hard durable finish. This year they are offering the "Fight Breast Cancer" gift pack ($19.99) shown below. For each one sold, they will be giving a bottle of polish and remover to a woman who is currently undergoing treatment for breast cancer and 10% of sales will also be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Next we have The Body Deli’s Pink Grapefruit Botanical Butter Scrub ($32). $6 of every unit sold will be donated to the local California cancer charity, Gilda’s Club, on behalf of The Body Deli.

Thanks to our friends at the Recessionista (one of Indulge's favorite blogs), we heard about this trendy bag. Avon is selling Marimekko tote available to benefit breast cancer for only $10.00. 100% of the net profits ($6.24) will be donated to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade.

Keds has created a limited-edition Pink Ribbon Champion ($40). 100% of the sales from this shoe will benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

A good way to mark the day someone becomes cancer-free is through this calendar key ($44). For each "PINK" key sold, $10 will be donated to National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Pink Days Ago ($5) is a little a digital timer that is a way for women to remind themselves to do monthly self-exams. 10% of the proceeds from Pink Days Ago sales go to an organization called the Network of Strength.

During the month of October, Glam Headbands will be donating 10% of their web sales to Dig Pink, a non-profit organization that raises money for the fight against breast cancer.


Finally, on a related note, we wanted to share this unique website with our readers. Uptown Liz is a site that promotes products from companies whose proceeds go to charity. It was created by Ramona Russell in memory of her 28-year-old sister Liz, who died from breast cancer. You can shop on this site by charitable cause or product category, knowing that every time you make a purchase you are making a difference.
