Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Shopping for a Cause

October is here, and that means it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This is a cause that is near and dear to my heart. Not only because I am a woman, but also because my mother in law was diagnosed with breast cancer almost exactly a year ago. I’m so grateful to say that after chemotherapy and radiation treatments she is cancer-free, but watching her go through the experience has left a lasting impression on me.

Between the endless holidays, birthdays, and baby showers that seem to fill my calendar, I feel good about buying gifts that give in more ways that one. Here is a list of some great baby and kid gear that supports breast cancer research and awareness.

1. Ju Ju Be Lotus Lullaby Be Prepared

I was a die-hard Fleurville carrier until I discovered the Ju Ju Be Diaper Bags. I love them. Plus, Ju Ju Be supports breast cancer awareness by donating a portion of their bag sales to breast cancer awareness charities.

2. Bright Starts Bloom and Play Activity Gym

Every purchase from the Bright Starts “Pretty in Pink” collection helps fund breast cancer research. Baby Chick loves this activity gym as well as several small toys from the Pretty in Pink collection.

3. Chloe in Style ponchos

Chloe In Style is giving $5 from each poncho sale to Rethink Breast Cancer — a charity helping young people affected by breast cancer through education, research and support programs. Check out their collection for more great styles and get 30% off with the code: 30smile.

4. Dandelion Organic Pink Little House Shape Sorter

Every toy from the Dandelion Pink Collection is made from organic machine-washable cotton and proceeds from sales support breast cancer research. Big Chick and Baby Chick equally enjoy this toy. Big Chick likes to sort the shapes and Baby Chick likes the different sounds and textures of the shapes.

5. Crazy Bands “Crazy Hope” glow in the dark rubber band bracelets.

The rubber band bracelet trend was totally off my radar until a few months ago. Big Chick cannot get enough of them. She has quite a collection. I think she will love the shapes that the “Crazy Hope” pack includes and she is going to freak out when she sees that they glow in the dark. Very cool.
