Limited Edition Pink Ribbon Products
October is breast cancer awareness month and for pink lovers this is a beautiful thing. Everyday brands makeover their essential products to feature pink packaging and encourage sales, with a percentage of the profits going to breast cancer research and services.
Two major organisations doing great work for those affected by breast cancer now and in the future, who will benefit from you purchasing the special pink products, are The National Breast Cancer Foundation and one of my favourite charities, The McGrath Foundation.
I couldn’t possibly review every item that is part of the initiative but, in a way, I don’t think you really need to be told anything new.
Everyone loves Dove products, they smell great, are excellent for sensitive skin and actually work. The soap, deodorants (aerosol and roll-on) and shower gel is all the same formula as the ones we already fill our trolleys with but your bathroom will look prettier, you’ll smell sweeter and someone who is suffering from breast cancer will be better off just for your purchase.
Tracy Bevan, ambassador and director of the McGrath Foundation and designers Camilla Franks and Natasha Welsh have each come up with uniquely designed hats with milliner, Jane Lambert, just in time for Spring Carnival in conjunction with Mount Franklin whose pink-lidded bottles raise funds for The McGrath Foundation. The Pink Hat-Trick hats are available from www.facebook.com/MountFranklin for $150 (including postage and handling) and proceeds from each hat will be donated to The McGrath Foundation along with a very generous $250,000 that has been pledged already by Mount Franklin.
If casual is more your style, Volleys have been recreated in hot pink canvas with the National Breast Cancer Foundation’s signature pink trim and pink ribbons printed on the lining. Get your pink Volleys from www.volley.com in women’s sizes for $35.00 (with $1.00 from every pair sold going directly to the NBCF).
