I know for some, right now is a penny-pinching time, with the US economy in turmoil and the financial markets off kilter. So I can completely empathize with wanting to give back, but not necessarily being able to without getting something back. And sometimes, giving and getting can be really fun. Throughout October, I will be listing many “pink” products from various beauty brands, so you can feel pretty and support the cause! And don’t think shopping pink stops with beauty–I was just at Safeway yesterday, and there were so many retailers with boxes decked out in pink ribbons!
