October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about the impact of breast cancer, and we’re here to show you how you can lend your support while scoring great products. Several popular retailers (many which you likely already shop at!) have partnerships with breast cancer charities to raise awareness and funds.
These companies are doing more than putting a pink ribbon logo on their clothes, though. They’re donating sizable contributions — regardless of sales — to breast cancer research and prevention.
