What you can do to support Breast Cancer Awareness month

As I mentioned in my recent post about the Birchbox and CoppaFeel collaboration, October is breast cancer awareness month and there’s loads of ways to get involved and support your favourite charities.

I posted my ‘FunBags’ on Instagram on Monday, the TIT-tees are the brainchild of the amazing Lauren of GirlStoleLondon. Firstly if you’re not following Lauren on Insta then you are totally missing out, she’s awesome! Lauren was diagnosed with breast cancer back in August 2016 and instead of hiding away, she created GirlVsCancer to give a big Fuck You to the big C. In time for Breast Cancer Awareness month the GirlVsCancer website launched and has become a community in its own right, it’s full of information and real stories from like-minded ladies. It’s also the place to get your own TIT-tee from melons to funbags and bee stings to lady lumps all proceeds will be divided between four amazing charities – CoppaFeel, TrekStock, Look Good Feel Better and Future Dreams.

Now you know I love a candle or 10. Flamingo Candles is donating 20% of the profits of these cute boob candles to the Pink Ribbon Foundation. Buy yours here for £10 www.flamingocandles.co.uk

Now if you’re stuck for what to wear on Wear It Pink day on 20th October, this gorgeous pink knit from Dorothy Perkins would be perfect. Plus 10% of all sales are being donated to Breast Cancer Care, it’s basically a double win! Get yours her www.dorothyperkins.com for £24.

Or if you’re looking for something more challenging what about signing up to a charity run like the London Marathon or Tough Mudder 2018. Breast Cancer Care has a number of charity places for a variety of events.

Are you planning anything in particular to support Breast Cancer Awareness month?
