What we can do on Breast Cancer Awareness Month?

Hi folks,

Have you been seeing pink colors and pink ribbons everywhere now? Fear not, you are NOT Color Blind (lol).

It's just simply 'cos October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!! :)

So what can we do on this special pink month?

Below are some ideas I have done and thinking to do. I like to share it with you all:
  1. Color your blog pink and have pink ribbons on your blog
  2. Conduct self-checks, whether you're male or female.
  3. Go for clinical examination/mammogram.
  4. Support companies/campaign which aims to raise awareness on Breast Cancer. Some of them are:
a. gin & Jacqie -local handbag
In May, local handbag label gin & Jacqie held a bag print design competition to create breast health awareness. The contest ended in July and the winning design entitled "Love and Faith" by Zuhaili Akmal Ismail is now on sale at Isetan KLCC, Isetan The Gardens , Tangs Pavilion KL and online at www.ginjacqie.com and www.emmagem.com.
Gin & Jacqie's winning entry called Love & Faith.

All profits from the sale of the bag, priced at RM18 each, will be donated to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association.

b. Fabric Softener Softlan (applicable for Malaysia only)

Fabric Softener Softlan joins in the fight against breast cancer. They will set aside 10 sen from every sale of the 2L charity bottle this month and proceeds will be going to National Cancer Society of Malaysia, Breast Cancer Welfare Association and National Cancer Institute (Makna).

By the way, I love their Pearl and Almond(orange label) scent. Will stock up more during Oct to support their good cause!

c.Estée Lauder Companies' (ELC)

Estée Lauder Companies' (ELC) initiated the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in 1992 and Evelyn Lauder, Senior Corporate VP Estee Lauder Companies, and Alexander Penney then editor of Self magazine, developed the pink ribbon, which has become the worldwide symbol of breast health.

There are many activities lined up for the Estée Lauder Companies Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign in Malaysia this year. Please check out the calendar at:


The illuminated KL Tower is Estee Lauder Companies' bid in sending out a strong message on breast cancer awareness.

d. Ryl Designs

(as seen on Shopaholics Den post on Breast Cancer Awareness Month)

Ryl Designs have created a set of Pink Ribbon Collection in their effort of doing their part for the pink ribbon campaign. 50% of all proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Welfare Association.


Here are some sneak peeks into the designs that they have in the collection:

f. AliceWonders.com

AliceWonders.com will be selling a limited collection of handbags, IT's PINKY! exclusively for the Breast Cancer Awareness campaign. 10% of the total sales will be donated to NCSM. Check their website to see and grab the marvelous bags!

And join their Got Boobies campaign here to spread awareness on Breast Cancer!

5. Decide and set your mind to Breastfeed your offspring(if you are a mom-to-be or an aspiring mom), support BF( if you are anyone else, be it a dad, a mother-in-law,etc) as studies shows...BREASTFEEDING lower Breast Cancer Risk!
