Shop For A Cause: Breast Cancer Awareness

A few weeks ago I attended an editor’s showcase of products that donate a portion of their proceeds to Breast Cancer Awareness.  I couldn’t believe how many wonderful companies I was introduced to that day. Have a look at some of the great finds I came across that support the cause:


ROOT HOPE CANDLE: The box is on my lap and the smell is just oozing out of it… and it’s not even LIT! What a smell and I haven’t even technically started using it. Legacy by Root presents three fragrances designed exclusively for Susan G. Komen for the Cure©. Each fragrance was developed to stimulate the senses and to inspire an overall feeling of wellness and hope.

Ten percent of the retail price of the Hope Candle presented by Legacy by Root will support Susan G. Komen for the Cure© with a minimum guaranteed donation of $25,000. (10 oz $30)


The Power of Pink MiniPRO® ½” Ceramic Straightener:  From the purchase of this straightener, $1.00 is donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation by Conair. ($20.99)


IGLOO PLAYMATE: 7-qt. BCA (Breast Cancer Awareness) personal-size cooler holds up to 9 cans plus ice ($16.99)

VSA Pink

VICTORINOX SWISS ARMY: The company is proud to continue its partnership with Susan G. Komen for the Cure®. They will be donating $1 from the sale of every specially packaged translucent pink Classic SD.($17.50)


LEGACY BY ROOT FRAGRANCED TASSELS – Designed as a new take on the classic decorative tassel, this delicate infusion of fragrance was inspired by customers looking for alternatives to candles and reed diffusers.
Underneath the tassel cords hides a fragranced sachet that releases heavenly scents for up to two months
