Support Breast Cancer Awareness and Female Empowerment with These Products

By Jennifer McKee

Every October, a bevy of great products that donate money to breast cancer research hit the market. While this is hardly a complete list, these are some of our favorites, and includes everything from health and beauty products to human and canine fashion, even oysters. Unless otherwise noted, these products are available through the end of October.

 


Betsy Lavender-Lemon Bar

Zum’s decadent Betsy Bar is made from goat’s milk and combines lavender with lemon essential oils to relax stiff muscles. It’s named in honor of Betsy Medina’s battle with breast cancer, during which she used Zum products because of their healing and moisturizing properties. For every Betsy Bar purchased, Zum donates $1 to Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing.

Frenchie Bulldog

Pooch parents can deck their dogs out in pink for a good cause: 100 percent of the Save the Ta-Tas cooling bandana goes to the Dr. Susan Love Foundation. An innovative design, simply soak the cooling bandana in cold water and wring it out – the light mesh fabric stays cold for as long as it stays wet. One size fits most dogs–not just bulldogs.

Real Oyster Cult curates its oysters from more than 70 farms across North America, so there’s always something new to experience.

The Comfort Cub

Give the gift of hope with the The Comfort Cub, the world’s first weighted teddy bear. It’s filled with a pea-sized weighted bead, so when you hug the bear, it releases dopamine, serotonin and oxytocin, which makes you feel better. The bear was created by founder Marcella Johnson after the loss of her newborn, George. It’ll get you through any type of loss, from a spouse, parent or pet to the loss of a job or even physical closeness in this uncertain time. There are many ways to donate: buy one for a person in need, a case to donate to a hospital, even three cases to an organization of your choice.

A portion of all proceeds (all year-round) are donated to the Women’s Center for Advancement, Feeding America and social enterprises in Africa.
