Breast cancer is deeply personal to so many people. One in eight women will develop the disease in her lifetime, which means nearly everyone will have a mother, sister, aunt, cousin, or friend impacted by the condition. That is why it's vital to fund researchers working to discover a cure or organizations dedicated to making patients' lives better. During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, in addition to making direct donations to the charity of your choice (like the Breast Cancer Research Foundation), you can indulge in some guilt-free shopping from brands that give back. Designers including Roger Vivier and Ralph Lauren, and retailers like Bloomingdale's, are offering pink products (naturally) and more with a portion or all of the proceeds going to BCA orgs. Doing good has never been easier or more stylish.
