October isn’t only the first full month of fall and the month of Halloween; in the US, it’s also Breast Cancer Awareness Month, were cancer charities and brands team up to celebrate both breast cancer survivors and those who have lost their battles with the deadly disease. Not only that, but collaborations between charities and designers raise important resources and awareness for our ongoing fight to rid the world of breast cancer once and for all.
We here at PurseBlog always love it when our shopping dollars can go the extra mile and help a cause larger than ourselves, so we thought we’d round up a few fashionable, charitable items so that we can splurge for a good cause before Breast Cancer Awareness Month is over. You have two weeks of shopping time left to ensure that your dollars still go to cancer research and awareness, and if you need some ideas, we’ve assembled a few of the best limited-edition options for you after the jump.
