 October is the month to think pink for breast cancer awareness, and in addition to making appointments for mammograms, stepping up your self-exam routine, and supporting friends and family who are battling the disease, there is something else that you can do to help — go shopping. BettyConfidential has uncovered some fabulously fashionable finds that give back by donating a portion of profits towards breast cancer research.

Here are some picks for the adventurer, the fashionista, the fitness guru and the other wonderful women in your life. Now get to it, and shop with a purpose!

FOR THE FASHIONISTA

White + Warren cashmere scarf

Ruffles are soo in this season. What a better way to show off the trend than with a sumptuous ruffled cashmere scarf ($150, whiteandwarren.com) and matching gloves ($75, whiteandwarren.com). Not into pink? They also come in black and white. Fifty percent of the proceeds from the White + Warren Shop Pink Collection benefits the Women At Risk Program at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Medical Center.

Polaroid PoGo Instant Mobile Printer

Want to show off a darling new dress? Take a pic with your cellphone and print it out with Polaroid’s PoGo Instant Mobile Printer in Pink ($49.99, polaroid.com). Get a 2X3 color borderless photo in under a minute. $10 from each purchase goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).

FOR THE CRAFTY-MINDED

Become a jewelry designer using the Jewelry for a Cause kit. Jessica Mindich created these kits to fulfill her company’s mission; “never forgetting those in need.” You get to pick the charity of your choice when you purchase a kit, or you can purchase a Kit For a Cure set ($100, jewelryforacause.com). You can make 10 pink peace sign bracelets, sell them and then donate the proceeds to the breast cancer awareness program of your choice.

Tool Kit for Breast Cancer

Here’s something a do-it-yourselfer will love — a 135-piece pink tool kit from Apollo Tools ($39.99, walmart.com). The kit’s endorsed by the BCRF, and a portion of the proceeds goes to breast cancer awareness programs.

  1. I like The Breast Cancer Awareness Frame.

    Save the Ta-Tas Foundation is my fave. I sported a “Save the Ta-Tas” shirt and sign at the AVON walk in NYC!

  2. this is ridiculous, don’t buy crap give your money to the actual scientist who are trying to find a cure for cancer. This stuff will just make you look good and only little of that money may go to the actual people fighting the real fight.
