pink for october

if you haven't heard, october is the national breast cancer awareness month, organized to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for researching it's cause, prevention, and cure. even though a little blue is completely in ♥ with all things blue... today's post is purely dedicated to PINK.

PINK shoes to be exact. : ) at the end of the blog, i've included a couple ways you can help donate. if you don't have the extra money to spend, you can always help raise awareness by posting on your blog, facebook, or twitter!

there are a few ways you can donate by making purchases or you can simply donate $$.

 my favorite (yet apparently very controversial for kids) is the keep a breast foundation. you can buy tees, bracelets, etc. the in your face message of i ♥ boobies, might not be for everyone, but it gets attention to the cause for sure.

the susan g. komen for the cure is probably one of the most recognizable foundations. you can go to their website to donate, get involved, or shop for items that donate 25% to the fight against cancer.

i am also a fan of the avon foundation for women ~ breast cancer crusade. their front page of the website lists 5 very alarming facts that everyone should be aware of. there's also an area to donate, and you can get the links to shop avon's pink ribbon products.

either way, do your part by educating yourself, spreading the word, and send positive thoughts and prayers to all those affected. if you've been affected, please feel free to share your thoughts.
