Here it is, October 1st, which means that a busy month is ahead. During October, companies brand pink products with a portion of the proceeds going to breast cancer research. This year, the Beauty Blog Network is also reviving its popular Comments for a Cure promotion and it has partnered with the Estee Lauder Company to raise money for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Throughout the month, look for Network blogs to pledge donations to various cancer research charities based on your comments. For more, visit the Beauty Blog Network Breast Cancer Awareness Page.
Beauty and Fashion Tech and Girl Gloss will be taking part, with a donation going to the Walter Payton Cancer Fund. I will donate $1 for each comment made between October 13 and 15 up to a total of $50. Readers can also leave their own donation, using the chipin widget in the left sidebar. Want more choices? Visit some of the other member blogs participating in Comments for a Cure. Both sites will also be listing or reviewing pink products throughout October.
Keep in mind that while buying pink products is fun, a direct donation is still the best way to assure that the entirety of your funds goes to cancer research and support!
A few other things to watch for during October from members of the Beauty Blog Network:
- Reader giveaways of pink products on blogs from the Beauty Blog Network and from Total Beauty
- Chipin widgets on sites that allow you to add your own direct donation to a variety of causes
- Many product reviews of Pink items on network blogs
October is a great time to browse all of the beauty blogs! Want to see other posts? Look in the loser right sidebar for the Beauty Blog Network Widget featuring Breast Cancer Awareness posts from network members!
