Think PINK

Since 1985, October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Organized by breast cancer charities, this annual international health campaign aims to increase awareness of the disease and raise funds.

In support of Breast Cancer Awareness month, companies have develop "pink products." The proceeds from pink sales are used to support programs, prevention education and research initiatives.

Check out some of my favorite products:

Comply with the new Ontario hands-free law with the stylish Jawbone EarCandy Bluetooth Headset in Frankly Scarlet. Available for $139.99 from TelusMobility, $10 from every sale between October 1 - December 31, 2009 will support Rethink Breast Cancer.

OPI has created their third exclusive nail lacquer, Pink of Hearts 2009, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. OPI will make a $5,000 donation to Rethink Breast Cancer. Pink of Hearts 2009 contains no Toluene, DBP, or Formaldehyde. The special polish will be available in October at professional salons and spas across Canada.

Save the environment and support breast cancer research with Green Bee Bags. The reusable, recyclable and compact bags are a stylish, durable way to reduce your use of paper and plastic (and .5 cents for all Torontonians!) Available for $15.99 at www.greenbeebags.com, 10% of proceeds will be donated to Rethink Breast Cancer.

Write, highlight, and flag your notes with Post-It products. 3M's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign features many "pink" products suitable for everyday life. My favorite (and most recent purchase) is the pink flag pen and flag highlighter. Proceeds from the sale of each specially-marked Post-It product will benefit the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.

Use Twitter to support breast cancer research by adding a Twibbon to your display picture. Twibbon's help show your support for breast cancer survivors and the ongoing research to stamp out the disease. Click here to follow me and my Twibbon on Twitter.

This October, Think PINK!
