October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Being diagnosed or having an increased risk of the disease can be daunting, but preparing for mastectomy can be extremely scary. As frightening as the surgery may seem, women are courageously fighting against cancer and the expenses really don’t come cheap.
We want to remember them – the fighters, the survivors and those whom we have lost to this menacing disease.
We have found several brands that teamed up with cancer charities to raise awareness and donations. Some also include contributing funds to breast cancer research.
Here are FIVE products who fund breast cancer charities:

Vans has teamed up with CoppaFeel! a charity based in the United Kingdom. The collection aims to raise awareness as well as to educate. The collaboration was released last October 1st, featuring four main breast-related designs. One is an update on the brand’s iconic checkered pattern with inclusive nude squares; another demonstrates how to examine your breasts. USD 200,000 of the earnings will be funded to the charity.
2. Ralph Lauren

Ralph Lauren Corporation’s Pink Pony Campaign has been ongoing since the year 2000. It was originally centred around breast cancer, but now donates 25 percent of sales to a wide range of cancer charities across the globe.

Accessorize, an all-accessories brand teamed up with CoppaFeel! to produce an eight-piece collection, consisting of scarves, tote bags, and pieces of jewellery, all illustrated with yes, you guessed it – breasts. USD 20,000 will proceed directly to charities. Retail prices start at USD 6.

Olay is also funding a charity called Bright Pink. With the purchase of the Regenerist Whip Pink Ribbon Face Moisturiser plus refill, 100 percent of the proceeds benefit Bright Pink. The refill pod also eliminates 94 percent of plastic jar waste. Hit two birds with one stone indeed when you purchase this product!
5. Bumble + Bumble
