October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

There will be an estimated 182,460 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women in the US in 2008 (and about 1,990 new cases in men). What can you do to help? Shop! Buy everyday items that support breast cancer research. Here are some suggestions from City of Hope:
  • Office products from Newell Rubbermaid's "Pink @ Work"
  • Avery pink and white binders with breast cancer awareness messaging
  • MVW's Mead, At-A-Glance, Cambridge, Day Runner calendars and journals
  • Innovera's white and pink Swarovski crystal-encrusted computer mouse
  • Samsill binders with pink ribbon decor and breast cancer awareness messaging
  • OfficeMax's in-store display featuring specially market leading office products
  • Designer apparel line Lyric Culture's "I Will Survive" pink T-shirt and tank top
  • Sutter Home's White Zinfandel "Capsules for Hope" program
  • Brita's special pink ribbon-themed water pitcher
  • Living Spaces Furniture "Sleep for the Cure" mattress set promotion
Anyone have any other suggestions?
