As we all (should) know, October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Though we should all be promoting awareness throughout the year, it's amazing to have a month dedicated to education, support and understanding. For the month of October, we find shops, boutiques and websites filled with specially crafted (usually pink) items that are sold to support breast cancer charities. Even that awful 5-Hour Energy shot grossness got on the bandwagon with a pink lemonade flavor of what I can only assume is pure caffeine and speed. Yuck. But good effort! I went real crazy when I saw a collaboration between In God We Trust, who I wrote about ages ago when I bought my Sweet Nothings necklaces here, and BonaDrag, one of my favorite e-commerce sites. Woah my goodness! BOOBS. Turning In God We Trust's signature heart necklace upside-down with a special inscription, the two companies created this brilliance.
If you're looking for other creative ways to support and promote the cause, make sure to read my post about artist Meg Biram from Mimi + Meg here! Boob paintings! Commission a one-of-a-kind work of art that Meg paints with, yes, her breasts. Her story is inspiring, her art is beautiful and part of the proceeds goes to charity as well!
