October is a special time, not only because it’s my favorite month of the season or my anniversary. It is also Breast Cancer Awareness month and many companies come together to offer special items with a portion of the proceeds donated to charities that help fund research towards a cure or help patients coping with Breast Cancer.
Here are some items that I think are wonderful and donate a portion of the profits to charity:
Scout Original Dean-O Pink Gingham for Breast Cancer Awareness Tote from The Preppy Princess - $32
30% of the amount will be donated to raise breast cancer awareness
Carousel Cakes Pink Velvet Cake - $41.95
$2.00 per cake will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. I have tried this cake before and it is delicious. Their traditional Red Velvet cake made the Oprah list a few years ago.
