In the month of October, pink is the new black. Fashion designers and celebrities are putting their talents into raising awareness for Breast Cancer.
Ralph Lauren is hosting the Pink Pony Auction to raise money for their foundation. The auction is selling rare collectibles from fashion, celebrities and athletes.
It also includes once-in-a-lifetime experiences like shopping with Simon Doonan, a ride with Lance Armstrong or lunch with Maggie Cheung.
Pink Pony supports programs for education and quality cancer care to medically underserved communities. If a bidding on an item is out of reach, you can support this cause by shopping for pink pony fashion accessories like the printed silk scarf and sunglasses.
Narciso Rodriguez teamed up with Swedish chain Lindex to create the Pink Collection. Lindex is a major sponsor to the Swedish Cancer Society, where a portion of the proceeds will be donated. The collection itself consists of reasonably priced wardrobe staples, cashmere-blend knits, asymmetrical dresses, skinny pants.
Vera Wang collaborated with department store chain Kohl’s. This special collection gives fans the opportunity to buy dressy pink pieces from the high-end designer at very affordable prices. Check out the grosgrain ribbon evening bag at only $10.00 or the sequined scarf also for $10.00
It’s not just clothing designers in the mix. You can shop and help Breast Cancer Awareness with jewelry. Ice.com’s Think Pink & Smile For a Cure campaign doesn’t just ask you to shop for the cause. They are asking you for your story of hope and humor to raise awareness of the disease. Readers vote for their favorites to win amazing pieces of jewelry as part of their sweepstakes. A percentage of sales from their Think Pink collection benefits the Comedy Cures Foundation.
