♡ October is 'Breast Cancer Awareness Month' ♡

Did you know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month? Yes it is, and as a message of hope from around the world the Estee Lauder Group of Companies will be illuminating approximately 200 global landmarks in bright pink lights to bring focus to this very relevant cause, this year the theme is "TOGETHER.Connect. Communicate.Conquer. For a Future Free of Breast Cancer".

Too many people die each year because of this awful disease which, with early detection can be cured and a long life lived.  The Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign hopes to shine a light on Breast Cancer by inviting everyone to share a message of hope and helping to fill the 'Illuminations Map'. By visiting the BCA Campaign Facebook page and writing your own 'Message of Hope' you will be lighting your little part of the world for all to see.

Most families these days have been touched in some way by Breast Cancer and it's not just women, men are affected by Breast Cancer as well. By supporting this wonderful Global Campaign we can all do our 'bit' to raise awareness and save lives, remember, early detection saves lives!  Let's illuminate the world with our support!! :D

How Can You Help?

There are so many products now that bear the 'pink ribbon' which means that if you buy that product the company will donate a percentage of money to the 'Breast Cancer Research Foundation' or in some cases all the money. Some of The Estee Lauder Group of Companies most glamorous brands have also joined together to sell pink products to raise awareness and raise funds to make 'October' prettier and more powerful than ever. Please consider next time you purchase a product and try to buy 'Pink' if you can or if you're interested in making a donation to this wonderful cause or buying specific products that may help to raise money, just visit http://www.bcacampaign.com/us/campaign_products.shtml :)

Some of the products available from the BCACampaign website

For those of you who live in Australia not all the products on the BCACampaign site ship down under, I found a few lovely items at Myer from the Estee Lauder counter which were very reasonably priced.

These products are available from the Estee Lauder counter in Myers
