There are a lot of fashion and beauty brands that are helping out with raising money for breast cancer. Here is how you can help.

Let’s start off with the facts.

Well in case you didn’t know, October is breast cancer awareness month. The color pink represents the awareness of breast cancer globally. It is the second most common cancer found in women and in the US alone over 250,000 women are expected to have this cancer by the end of this year.

The Susan G Komen breast cancer walk took place all over New York City this past Sunday and it’s never too late to donate for the cause.¬† I didn’t have the chance to go this year but have been part of the breast cancer walk for quite a few years and it’s such a great event to attend.¬† You can donate to the Susan G Komen fund anytime¬†¬†here.

In addition here are some beauty products and fashion items you can purchase to support breast cancer!
