Shopping is always fun, but it’s even better when it supports an important cause. In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and with a few days left in October to observe it, it’s not too late to shop and support this great cause in style. To help you do just that, here is a list of female-owned brands who are making a difference in the fight against breast cancer, one product at a time.
Garcelle x Roni Blanshay is a beautiful jewelry collaboration between actress Garcelle Beauvais and her close friend and breast cancer survivor, Roni Blanshay. They are donating 50% of their Pink Power collection to the American Cancer Society. I have a penchant for statement earrings and I’m swooning over these beauties.
SheWarrior, a cool sustainable activewear brand made in the USA, is donating 30% of its Flower Power collection to City of Hope. This collection strikes the perfect balance between femininity and strength, reminding us to “embrace every challenge as the strong and confident woman you are.”
With Love Darling is a line of delicate sustainable jewelry founded on a mission to helping make the world a better place. Built around the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, every piece tells a story for a better future. The brand is donating 100% of their Power of Pink collection to City of Hope.
PEARTH, which stands for “peace on earth” is a brand that was founded by Jamie Raitan to inspire us to slow down and be present. In partnership with the amazing movement #thepinkfightclub, Jamie designed a special edition pink Topless Everyday Sun Hat. Handmade from Genuine Toquilla Straw only found in Ecuador, 50% of the proceeds from each hat sale is donated to the American Cancer Society.
Protect My Shoes (founded by yours truly) is a line of stylish shoe care products and home to the patented “shoe stuffer.” As a big believer in supporting women, the brand donates 10% of all online sale proceeds and 50% of sales of its Heroes in Pink shoe stuffers to the American Cancer Society, specifically to fund female-led cancer research.
The Pink Fight Club is a movement created by Zoe Lanham after her breast cancer diagnosis. She felt it necessary to share her story, support the research behind her recovery, and help women around the world with early detection, knowledge empowerment, and finding a place for support. The Bodvár Rosé Gift Box was created in partnership between The Pink Fight Club, The Addison and The Bodvár – House of Rosé. 25% of proceeds from each box sold is donated to the American Cancer Society’s ResearcHERS campaign. Drink responsibly!
