Around the world, October is recognized as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer organizations lead campaigns, walks, and donation efforts to increase awareness and raise funds for research, prevention, treatments, and, ultimately, a cure.
One of those important organizations is The Keep a Breast Foundation.
The Keep A Breast Foundation
The Keep A Breast Foundation uses multiple digital and artistic approaches to educate and support a younger audience—who often aren’t specifically targeted by breast cancer charities.
This charity meets millennials and Gen Z on their own turf, at music festivals and art events worldwide. Interactive displays, educational materials, and an approachable style help them engage women and men, and they learn more about their bodies and how to take care of them.
Now to the Makers and their products that are doing good this month, too.
Wink – All-Natural Eyelash Kits
For every purchase, Wink donates a “Feeling Beautiful Again” bags to a cancer warrior through the Breast Cancer Charities of America. This helps regrow the lashes or brows of patients who have lost them through chemotherapy.
Cuchina Safe – Glass Covers & Baking Dishes
Cuchina Safe was created in response to Maker Susan Castriota’s own breast cancer diagnosis. Her daughter informed her that plastic microwave can be hazardous so Susan created her own durable, safer designs. The lids are made with strong, non-porous borosilicate glass. It won’t hold on to odors, stains, or bacteria like plastics can. Susan is in the Survivors Circle for BCRF (Este Lauder). Every October, she gives 5% of sale proceeds to the foundation.
Chocamo – Cookie Cups
The already delicious cookie cups are even tastier knowing that they are also supporting a great cause. With their new pink lemonade flavor, ChocAmo will donate 10% of the proceeds of their Pink Lemonade flavor to Wish Upon A Wedding, a nonprofit that grants renewal vows and weddings to couples facing serious, life-altering, and terminal illnesses.
The Negg – Hard Boiled Egg Peeler
For every pink-lidded egg peeler sold, The Negg donates 10% of all sales to the Susan G. Komen foundation.
1Face – Digital Watches with a Cause
1Face makes watches for a cause and their pink watch focuses on breast cancer awareness. Like Peeps, 20% of their sales from their pink watch are donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
My Storytellers – Charm Bracelets
Each My Storytellers keychain charm lets you carry a positive reminder each day. Their Conquer Cancer charm also carries with it a 10% donation of all sales to the Conquer Cancer Coalition. In 14 years, My Storytellers has raised more than $700,000 for the organization.
I’mpact One – Breast Cancer Foundation
Last year we worked with I’mpact One, a breast cancer foundation that helps women navigate the emotional and financial challenges breast cancer brings with it. Their network of advocated offers women emotional support, education, and awareness through a free hotline. They help with everything from understanding insurance coverage and connecting with partner organizations to providing prosthetics, bras, wigs, and post-surgical garments to women who can’t afford them.
