Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Jewelry and Coffee

October is coming to a close, which means it’s time to remind you that Breast Cancer Awareness (along with Ovarian Cancer Awareness!) should be at the front of our minds all year long.

Be sure to check out the following information from BreastCancer.org:

And here are some ideas to keep the pink going:

Angela Moore’s Pink Ribbon Collection, sales from which 15% of proceeds go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. As you may remember from Angela Moore’s Ovarian Cancer Awareness line, all of her pieces are hand-painted and one of a kind:

Dark Pink Charm

Dark Pink Charm with Gold Filled Accents: $9.00

Pink Ribbon Triple Pendant with Chain

Pink Ribbon Triple Pendant with Chain: $40.50

Blue Men's Tie

Blue Men’s Tie: $49.50

Pink Ribbon Classic Bracelet with Pink Rondelles

Pink Ribbon Classic Bracelet with Pink Rondelles: $54.00

And for my fellow coffee lovers out there, check *this* out:

Jura has made a one off pink version of their ENA 5 machine to auction off in a bid to raise money for several Breast Cancer Awareness charities. How CUTE is this?

Hurry, bidding ends at noon on October 30!

And remember, think pink and teal all year round!

2 Beans of Wisdom to “Celebrating Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Jewelry and Coffee”

    I’ve had a ‘Think Pink ‘ Month too. I’ll add your post to those who joined in with me!
    So important that these causes are supported.

    Thanks for adding me!

  2. I know the Komen foundation has The Race For The Cure event in Rome. Not sure when it is. Last year it was huge. Seeing all women, joined by family and friends in white t-shirts reminded me of the years I did the race in L.A. and NYC.

    You’re right, we should be thinking about these things year round.

    I didn’t realize they did one in Rome! Cool 🙂
