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.


Forever 21

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.


New Balance

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


Pepperidge Farm

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.


Sally Beauty

Okay ladies, find a beauty product that will help you give. On specially marked items you can help donate 5% of what you purchase to the Susan G. Komen foundation.


Bank of America

For each new Susan G. Komen for the Cure branded credit card account opened and activated, a minimum of $3 and 0.20% of all net retail purchases made with the card go to the foundation. The foundation also receives $1 for each annual renewal of the card.

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.


Pandora Jewelry

Pandora will donate 5% of the retail sales for the two special pink ribbon beads, pendants and necklace to Komen for the Cure.

Helzberg Diamonds

From now until November 30, 2011, for every purchase made from the exclusive Love, Help, & Hope™ Collection by Dorothy Hamill, $5 will be given towards the cure.


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.

There are plenty of other ways to contribute by checking out the long list of other sponsors that contribute to the Susan G. Kormen foundation.

Unfortunately, a lot of sponsors contribute but their deadlines all ended before placing this article.

Kormen website at the beginning of the year and find out the deadlines of each of their programs.
