Glam Shopping Beat: When the Going Gets Tough, the Tough Shop for Goodies that Help Fight Breast Cancer. FASHIONTRIBES FASHION BLOG
Glam Shopping Beat column for the week of 10-16-06 - by Lesley Scott:
A significant number of retailers, both high profile & less so, have jumped on the breast cancer bandwagon, transforming it into to the fashionable cause du jour...at least for the month of October. However, it's great that people are finally paying attention; until much too recently, breast cancer was kept hush-hush - a familial bogeyman that haunted a clan's proverbial closet.
The best thing about breast cancer becoming such a chic cause is that there are now tons of ways to contribute to the fight. From gorgeous rose-scented & -hued candles by cult fave Diptyque, to snuggly tees, handy bath kits, and even a fun girls-night-out poker kit, retailers are donating a significant portion of the proceeds of these limited edition items to high profile & effective breast cancer foundations. What a great way to get a jump on your holiday shopping - one for someone deserving, one for yourself! - while doing a world of good.
All of the above items are available through Glam.com.
