Shop For A Cause: Support Breast Cancer Research with these Fabulous Finds

Thursday, October 3, 2013
In today's tough economy, it's sometimes difficult to squeeze charitable donations in to an already tight budget. Donations are often easier to justify when you are getting something back for your donations.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month offers us a chance to indulge ourselves (which we may not normally do) while giving to worthy causes.

Here are a few of my favorite donation-worthy items that will help a woman suffering from breast cancer and won't break the bank (ok, there is one item that will break the bank).

Wear Your Support
Jennifer Aniston models the "Key to the Cure" shirt designed by Emilio Pucci exclusively for Saks Fifth Avenue. The shirt is available at Saks throughout the month of October and Saks will donate 100% of the sales of the shirt to the Entertainment Industry Foundation for Key to the Cure campaign. In addition, Saks will be donating 2% of its vendor sales from October 1 to December 31 to the campaign. Get shopping!
