Wear it for Support!

Wear a ribbon this month - a pink ribbon, please!

bca_pin.jpgThe prettiest pink ribbon I have found is from non other than Estee Lauder. This is the ESTÉE LAUDER 2006 Pink Ribbon Jeweled Pin.

Available at Estee Lauder counters nationwide and on their website for $15, Estee Lauder will donate $13,000 from the sale of this limited-edition pin to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a charity founded by Ms. Evelyn Lauder, herself.

The pin features the signature ribbon in hot pink jewels. I am running to my local counter today to purchase one before it sells out, and I will be sure to wear it everyday this month.

Here is information about the Breast Cancer Research Foundation: The Foundation was founded in 1993 by Evelyn H. Lauder as an independent, not-for-profit organization dedicated to funding innovative clinical and genetic research. The Foundation supports scientists at leading medical centers worldwide whose research is focused on achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer in our lifetime.  A minimum of 85 cents of each dollar donated to the Foundation goes directly to breast cancer research and awareness programs.  In October 2005, $22 million was awarded to 110 researchers across the U.S. and in Canada, Europe, Latin America, and Israel. Money magazine named BCRF one of America’s eight top charities. The Foundation has received the highest rating from Charity Navigator, four stars, for five consecutive years, which means BCRF has outperformed most other charities in America in efficiently managing its finances. For more information, visit http://www.bcrfcure.orgor call 1.866.FIND.A.CURE.
