October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

Monday, October 1, 2007

October is officially Breast Cancer Awareness month and we have lots of opportunities this time of year to purchase every day items that we love while benefiting breast cancer research. Breast cancer affects millions of people and every Monday this month, I will post items you can buy where a portion of the proceeds will go to various breast cancer charities.

This week, I've decided to feature perfectly pink items that will brighten up your kitchen and make you feel good about cooking for your family this fall.

KitchenAid "Cook For The Cure" Special Edition Artisan Mixer ($399 US). This classic KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer, in the same shade of pink as the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon, makes a statement of compassion while delivering the performance you've come to expect. $50 from the proceeds of each pink mixer sold will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Cuisinart Pink Collection ($39.99 - 69.99 US). Think pink, think positive. This collection of vibrant appliances adds a little sunshine to any kitchen and a ray of hope in the lives of women around the world. Three percent of proceeds for each sale will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Emile Henry "Bake for the Cause" Pink Pie Dish ($37.99 US). Pretty in pink, this cute 9” pie dish gives you good cause to bake - 10% of every purchase goes to breast cancer research. Featuring a classic scalloped, wavy rim and a warm pink color, the dish is almost as inviting as the pie inside.
