Pinktober! Its Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Shop for the Cure!

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and its time to THINK PINK!  Get out your credit cards and shop for a cure.  From Athletes to Rock Stars, everyone's sporting pink!

The NFL "Crucial Catch" campaign supports yearly cancer screenings to aid in early detection. Football teams don pink sneakers/ socks/ gloves as they hit the gridiron to show their commitment to the cause.

Shop here for your own Pink gear (categorized by team!)

Not a football fan?  What about Music?

Hard Rock Cafe created the "Pinktober" campaign to raise money and awareness.  Check out their site. I have my eye on a comfy looking nightgown, and the guitar pin is super cute!

Positively my favorite Pink products that I have seen this year are from cancer survivor Betsey Johnson! Shop her site for adorable items!
She is hosting an event to raise awareness and donate to Fashion Targets Breast Cancer (a Council of Fashion Designers of America initiative).
 Betsey encourages women to be brave enough to talk about cancer and to celebrate life to the fullest!

If you would prefer to make a donation, there are several amazing organizations to contribute to such as the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer  and the Susan G. Komen foundation.
