PINK for a cure! October is Breast Cancer Month!

I’m sure all of you are aware that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There is pink EVERYWHERE! One of my favorite things is seeing the NFL wearing pink with their uniforms. It’s so great to see everyone supporting a fantastic cause, which needs attention! I posted about Ann Taylor’s gorgeous Evelyn Lauder Collection last week, but I have found so many more ways to give away through fashion, etc since then! So I thought I would post a few. I guarantee there are hundreds of more opportunities out there as well.
