For the month of October, some of our favourite brands are partnering up with Rethink Breast Cancer, giving you a chance to donate hard earned cash to a worthy cause while getting a lil’ something special for yourself too. With a mandate to empower the young people worldwide who are concerned about and impacted by breast cancer, the charity not only brings awareness to the cause, it provides education and support to women affected by the disease.
Check out our some of our favourite items that’ll help Rethink Breast Cancer’s work, and if you’re in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary or Vancouver, be sure to check out a Boobyball fundraiser date near you. Go on, treat yourself in the name of a good cause.
