BEAUTY THAT GIVES BACK: Breast Cancer Beauty Round Up
With so many beauty companies fighting for the cure to breast cancer, a disease that affects one out of every eight women, Fashiontribes decided to round up some of our favorite products and sites that are fighting for the cure.
One of the best breast cancer initiatives we have seen is a commitment not by a brand but by an entire store. This year, Beauty.com has partnered with CEW’s Cancer and Careers initiative. In addition to creating a BCA store with an assortment of products that benefit different BCA charities, from October 12-18, shop at Beauty.com/CancerAndCareers and receive 10% all purchases - which will be donated to CEW’s Cancer and Careers.
Shoppers can buy ANYTHING sold on the site, not just BCA products (nothing is restricted in any way). This gives shoppers the opportunity to stock up on their favorite brands and products they would normally buy and help give back – so easy.
