That’s precisely why we’re donating 10% of all ‘Pink Power’ sales this month towards the fight against breast cancer. And, we’re not the only one! In October, brands from many different markets get involved by donating a percentage of sales to organizations dedicated to the fight against this disease that has most likely impacted someone YOU know.
We’ve compiled a list of companies we love that have embraced October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month and are putting their money where their mouth is by contributing to the fight against breast cancer.
