According to the Dutch Pink Ribbon foundation 1 out of 7 woman is diagnosed with breast cancer. Therefore every year the whole month of October is dedicated to getting more awareness towards breast cancer. A lot of brands launch special products which donate a percentage of the profit towards the breast cancer research. All the brands connected to the Estee Lauder Companies have launch those special products during breast cancer awareness month. They have a special campaign called The Breast Cancer Campaign, where you can use #TimeToEndBreastCancer on social media. In this post I would like to tell you what you can do with only 10 euros and how you can support breast cancer research in The Netherlands and in other countries.
Mango contributed to Beast Cancer Awareness month with special T-shirts. They have two different once: a grey, which has “Stronger Together” printed on it. And a white one with the print: “You are not alone”. The T-shirts are 15.99 each and they also have a pink sweater which is 29.99 in euros. All profits of these clothing items will be donated to the Fero Foundation in Barcelona (Spain). I believe these T-shirts are available in Mango all over Europe.

This bracelet is unique to the pink ribbon foundations in Holland, which you can buy at the Dutch Pink Ribbon website.

The brand Invisibobble, famous for their telephone wire-like hair ties, launched a special pink ribbon version called “Time To Pink”. The hair ties are slim, so they are the small ones! Nevertheless there are three of them in one pack and sold for only 5.99! 25% of the earnings will go to 1 of the 4 nominated German Breast Cancer Charities. You can vote on their website, which charity you want the money to go to. In the Netherlands you can buy this Invisibobble on Boozyshop or Lookfantastic.nl. Outside of Holland you can buy it at Lookfantastic.com, Feelunique and amazon.
And last but not least in all Dutch supermarkets called Albert Heijn you can buy a beautiful bouquet for 10 euros. The supermarket will donate 2.50 euro to the Pink Ribbon Foundation in The Netherlands/Belgium.
Even more products
There are even more products sold to raise awareness for breast cancer over the world. Most of the products are from brands within the Estee Lauder Companies. They are listed on the Estee Lauder Companies website, which you can buy on the website of the brands themselves. Essie also launched a special nail polish collection called Pop Soda, which is not yet available in The Netherlands. Hopefully they will be available soon, but in the mean time you can buy them on their own website. Although at the moment I wrote this blogpost they were already sold out.
