Send a Kiss For Breast Cancer Research

Breast cancer awareness month is wrapping up, but if you want to get one last philanthropic endeavor in before November, scoot on over to Avon's PassTheKiss.org to send someone your own talking lips message. It's fun — the idea is to send an empowering message to a friend or relative, but you can say whatever you want (as long as it's not dirty — not that I tried).

You can also pick up a tote bag for just $5, and 100 percent of the net proceeds will go to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, which has raised and donated almost $700 million for breast cancer research, and to improve access to breast cancer care in more than 50 countries.

Avon ambassador Resse Witherspoon had this to say: "Here in the United States, one woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes. I am proud to stand with the Avon Foundation for Women in this important crusade to raise both awareness and funds that will save lives."

So pucker up and spread the message!
