If you're already planning on shopping (or getting a head start on your holiday list) this is a great way to give back.
Breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women so, chances are, you know someone who has been affected by it. Both of my grandmothers had it so I'm always on the lookout for ways to help fund research beyond traditional donations.
The entire month of October is dedicated to raising awareness and encouraging women to do self-checks or schedule their mammograms. After all, early detection is paramount. Which means this month is a time that many companies and organizations work together to raise funds for breast cancer research. If you're already planning on shopping (or getting a head start on your holiday list) this is a great way to give back.
Here are our favorite products that are donating percentages of proceeds directly to research:
This female-founded puzzle company features trendy designs from incredible female artists. Trust us, you won't be able to resist framing them. One of their most popular puzzles "Boobs" relaunched for this month—20% of proceeds will be donated to Breast Cancer Research Foundation and select other partners.
Making the switch to natural deodorant was one of the best decisions I've made—and Primally Pure is my favorite (no leftover residue or weird smells). Throughout the month of October, one of Primally Pure's bestselling products will give 50% of proceeds to Lipstick Angels.
