The world officially commemorated breast cancer awareness day on Oct 19th, but the entire month of October is dedicated to bring awareness to this terrible disease. While today’s statistics show that one out of eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, the good news is that now more than ever, the rate of survival is higher as long as the illness is detected at an early stage.
Nowadays, many brands are joining together to help find the cure, and the fashion industry is no stranger to the cause. We’ve rounded up a variety of limited-edition fashion finds, where a percentage of their proceeds go to research and funding… so go ahead, buy Pink and do good!
Bucketfeet’s Brittney Grandmaison discovered via Bright Pink that one out of eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime, which is why she teamed up with Bright Pink to make a bra-covered slip-on shoe named One in Eight. With these shoes, you will not only be making a fashion statement, but will also be helping Bright Pink to support the prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer, since $10 will be donated out of each purchase.
