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.

Women at Risk
The Columbia University Medical Center runs the Women at Risk (WAR) program to improve the lives and health of women with breast cancer and women who are at high risk for it. Funds raised by WAR go to research projects, support, and education.
A mother-daughter team cofounded the Making Memories organization in 1998 to grant wishes to metastatic breast cancer patients. The group raises funds, in part, through the sale of donated wedding gowns.
National Breast Cancer Foundation
The NBCF helps raise awareness with educational programs about early detection and provides free mammograms to women in need. It aids in research funding for the Cleveland Clinic, the Mayo Clinic, and the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.
Breast Cancer Research Foundation
This organization provides funding for clinical and genetic research, with the goal of curing breast cancer in our lifetime. At least 85 percent of the money raised goes to breast cancer research grants and awareness programs.
Komen for the Cure
In its 28 years, this grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and supporters has also become the largest source of nonprofit funds for the fight against breast cancer.
Young Survival Coalition
Founded by three women who were under 35 when they were diagnosed with breast cancer, the coalition focuses on women 40 and under who have breast cancer.
National Breast Cancer Coalition
The NBCC lobbies for public policies that impact breast cancer research, diagnosis, and treatment. Donations go toward training for breast cancer advocates and clinical trials.
Breast Cancer Network of Strength
Formerly known as Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization, the nonprofit provides immediate emotional relief for anyone dealing with breast cancer with its survivor-staffed peer support service, YourShoes.
Avon Foundation for Women
The Avon Foundation for Women, which tackles such women’s issues as domestic violence, has raised and donated more than $640 million to support research with its Breast Cancer Crusade program, which launched in 1992.
