Help Cure Breast Cancer: Small Ways to Give

Updated on June 21, 2012

There are times when we want to give but some of us our hesitant. Some might even feel like if they give then that’s money lost that could go toward something else. Well here I’ve given a few ways to give without feeling the pinch of really giving. There are lots of sponsors that donate a percentage of suggested retail pricing towards the Susan G. Komen foundation to help fight breast cancer. Find out which one you can give to without feeling like you're giving.



Every yogurt you purchase may come with a pink lid. If so, for every clean lid you mail in 10 cents will be donated to the foundation. This expires, December 2011. You have plenty of time to down some yogurts and mail those lids off.


Palmer’s Cocoa Butter

While you are thinking about moisturizing your skin this winter help give in the process. Komen for the Cure will receive 15 percent of each specially marked item sold.

Still remain in style while giving. Forever 21 will donate 10% of the retail sales price of each item specially marked with a pink Give to love, Love to Give™ heart logo designating Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

There will be 5% of retail sales for each product sold from the Lace Up for the Cure® pink ribbon collection.

Okay, who can’t find something within Pepperidge Farm’s arsenal of sweet delicacies. Well search a little harder for specially marked products for supporting a cure for cancer. This ends by December 2011.

And not only that, you get to Earn 1% cash back on all purchases and Earn 3% cash back on gas, grocery, and drug store purchases for first 6 months.

Fuze and Honest Tea

There’s only a few more days with this one but there’s still time to contribute. The deadline to contribute is November 30, 2011. For every specially designed Fuze and Honest Tea beverage, all the proceeds made from it will go to the foundation.


BCBGMAXAZARIA and Clear Vision Optical

BCBGMAXAZARIA and Clear Vision Optical will give 20% of sales to the foundation resulting from the sales they receive on their sunglasses and a specially designed bracelet for the Komen for the Cure foundation.

I personally don't know anyone that has battled against breast cancer but I have seen the affects that it causes. I have seen women still hopeful, though they struggle. Hopefully one of these days an answer will be provided for both men and women across this world that are still vulnerable to this any form of cancer. Help do your part if you are able to.
