Pink Products Promote Breast Cancer Awareness

Published Oct 4th 2007, 3:52pm by Patty Streeter in Featured Articles

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so we've compiled a collection of pink products meant to help us car gals raise awareness of breast cancer. Many of these companies also donate a portion of their profits to raising breast cancer awareness as well. This is just a small sampling of the many pink products out there; if you've found something really spectacular that you want to share to help raise awareness of breast cancer, let us know by submitting it to our online form and we'll be sure to pass the info along here at askpatty.com. I tried to keep it directly related to CAR products, but as I was searching, I found lots of pink products that we could wear or use in our day-to-day lives to raise awareness. I hope you'll find something you like as well.

Bmw_horshoekeyring_2 Since 1997, BMW has partnered with Susan G. Komen for the Cure in its fight against breast cancer through the BMW Ultimate Drive and the Pink Ribbon Collection. BMW also offers an official assortment of merchandise ranging from keyrings and travel mugs, to "Ultimate Drive" caps and quilted tote bags.

Mm_candies_2 Chocolate is always good. That's why M&M's offers special packs of M&M'S Chocolate Candies to represent their support of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. They even donate 10% of your purchase of their special pink-and-white Promise Blend candies to the cause.

PinkcarmagnetsJust as pink awareness lapel pins have been raising awareness for years, the pink ribbon car magnet continues to raise breast cancer awareness on a more mobile level. Pink Ribbon car magnets are available from a variety of sources, including oneineight.org, which also features a huge assortment of apparel, jewelry, and cell phone charms, as well.

Pink_rubber_duckies Okay, okay. They are definitely NOT car related, but who wouldn't love to play with these pink rubber duckies in the tub? And their very presence should be a playful reminder to help women remember to perform their BSE.



That wraps up this assortment of Pink Products to Promote Breast Cancer Awareness; if you've found something really spectacular that you want to share to help raise awareness of breast cancer, let us know by submitting it to our online form and we'll be sure to write about it here at askpatty.com.
