Brands Giving Back to Breast Cancer Research and Survivors

While October signifies the start of festive holidays, it also marks the beginning of Breast Cancer Awareness Month – a time of heightened awareness for the most common form of cancer affecting women in the United States.

While the acts of donating to breast cancer research, raising awareness of the disease, and honoring its fighters should undoubtedly be practiced year-round, this month commands our collective attention as a nation, encouraging us to join forces and fight the good fight until cancer is a term reserved for the history books.

Every year, brands do their part to bring the dream of a cancer-free world to reality by donating proceeds from their limited-edition “pink” sales to organizations fundraising and fighting for the 1 in 8 women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

Here are a few retailers and restaurants giving back this Breast Cancer Awareness Month:

The curated selection of shoes and handbags are released exclusively in the perfect shade of candy pink. Jimmy Choo is donating 20% of the purchase price from items in this collection to BCRF, up to $100,000.
