Shop Brands Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness and Research This October – Yahoo Lifestyle

We all know someone who has been affected by breast cancer. As a cause that hits so close to home for so many, the outpouring of support each October since its establishment as Breast Cancer Awareness Month in 1985 is felt very deeply. This year is no exception, with many designers, brands, and activists showing their undying support for this cause.
Though direct donations to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Touch, The Black Breast Cancer Alliance, and the National Breast Cancer Foundation (to name just a few) are always much appreciated and needed, sometimes it’s fun to donate while getting a little bonus for yourself, like like a beautiful pair of Jimmy Choo satin mules or a soft Ralph Lauren sweater. Plus, it’s almost the holidays, and a pretty present with a philanthropic element will not go unnoticed.
Below, our favorite brands supporting the fight to eradicate breast cancer.
