October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Ladies, we all know that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  The disease is affecting so many lives.  We need a cure.  For the month of October you will see many bloggers, magazines, websites, and numerous avenues supporting this cause.  I know the economy is bad, but if you purchase one product – no matter the price point – you help someone else.  That’s what Pretty Philanthropy is all about.  I will be featuring all kinds of "pink beauty products."  I have joined with Total Beauty for a giveaway on Friday, October 17th and The Beauty Blog Network to raise funds.  My goal is to raise $200.00.  If we can raise more I’m so happy.  I’m asking everyone to donate $5.00.  You can donate at Paypal (email is allaboutthepretty@gmail.com) or go straight through the Chip-In Widget on the right sidebar. 

I plan to give all the funds to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation by November 15, 2008 to make sure all donations are counted.  Last December, I attended the Cosmetic Executive Women’s Annual Cancer and Careers Luncheon and was deeply moved.  This organization supports women who are affected by cancer.  Life changing is the only way to describe the luncheon. 

Here is where you can help.  We have pages at My Space and Facebook.  I need you to become a friend and a fan.

I will have regular reviews so don’t think for one second I won’t continue to bring the beauty even if I have to hunt for an Internet cafe in Paris.  The regular font color for the blog is chocolate brown, whenever you see an entire post in pink – it’s to support Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  We are blessed to be a blessing. 

This video tells the story.

    I’ve been buying Yoplait and saving those pink lids. And, I just got free tickets to a cancer benefit concert with Sheryl Crow. It’ll cost me 10 pink lids at the door — that’s it! Glad to see other bloggers supporting Awareness Month.
