Although it's important to support cancer research all year round, it's time to put the power behind the pink...October is Breast Cancer Awareness month as we all know. Please show your support for this all important cause. There are so many ways to lend a hand these days. Just about every purchase you make, every store you enter, every sport team you cheer for, shows their pink ribbon pride.
Penny loves that the beauty industry decides to 'Fight Like A Girl' every October and offers so many fun ways to contribute to the cause.
- ULTA Beauty announced today Oct. 1, that throughout the month of October, Ulta will participate in fundraising events to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF). As part of their campaign ULTA's “Cut-A-Thon” will be held on Oct. 13 from 11 a.m. – 6 p.m. at Ulta salons across the US. Donate a minimum of $10 and you get your choice of a shampoo & cut; facial treatment or pink hair extensions. Don't forget to look for specialty products with the pink ribbon as well. See www.ulta.com and type "breast cancer awareness" in the search engine.
