Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I'm already seeing all kinds of products in stores that give money from your purchase to help with research to find a cure! From the pink Yoplait lids to Mike's Hard Pink it! And hey, can someone give me a heads up if they see pink M&Ms? With my die-hard pink fan (EJ), I need to stock up for projects throughout the year!

Another awesome organization is Pantene Beautiful Lengths. They collect hair to make free wigs for women who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments (it takes 6 ponytails to make 1 wig). In the 3 years they have been working, they have collected 1 million inches of hair! Your hair can be wavy or straight, colored (semi-permanent dyes only), but you need to donate at least 8 inches. Pantene takes the ponytails...processes them, dyes them to the same color, and creates the wig. It takes 3-4 months to make each wig which is then gifted through the American Cancer Society. I think it is awesome that Pantene is doing this and am glad I use their products so my money helps them keep up the good work!

So if you happen to have a ponytail you're looking to say goodbye to...I know just the place! In fact mine is heading there today...
