Think Pink: Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Oct 01, 2013

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. While not many kids have to think about this illness personally, most of us know a mom, aunt, sister, cousin, teacher or friend who has been affected by breast cancer. There are lots of cool ways to support the cause, including a number of “pink” products for purchase (our faves for tweens are listed below) that donate all or partial proceeds to breast cancer research.

Pink Footwear

While exercise hasn’t been proven to prevent or cure breast cancer, staying fit and active is a big part of leading a healthy lifestyle. That’s why we love New Balance 769 pink-and-silver running shoes (the company is donating 15% of sales to the cause). And when you’re done walking and running for the day, slip on a pair of pink Switchflops by Lindsay Phillips that comes with interchangeable Velcro straps.

Pink Makeup

This month it’s DEFINITELY all about pink – especially when it comes to makeup. You can look lovely AND help support great breast cancer charities by smearing some Sephora Super Shimmer Lip Gloss in Forever Pink on your lips, brushing some OPI Pink of Hearts Nail Polish on your nails, and powdering your cheeks with Smashbox Cosmetics Blushing Pink Fusion Soft Lights.

Pink Jewelry

There are tons of shiny things to buy in support of breast cancer research. Pink “gummy” bracelets are casual and easy to wear; Guess Watches are girly and cute; and Oakley Shades will keep the sun outta your eyes and help find a cure!

Pink Gadgets

Some pink gadgets for breast cancer awareness are low-tech (like a cute pink umbrella) while others (like a pink Sony Vaio W laptop, Apple iPod or Casio Digital Camera) are a little more cutting edge!

Pink Candy

PINK M&Ms, Hershey’s Kisses and KitKat Bars are just some of the treats you can eat to support breast cancer research and help find a cure!

Froggers
theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?

@AmayahG I had a friend for eight years whom I thought was my best friend. But, turned out that she lied to people a lot, including me. She also talked badly of me behind my back and blamed me for everything when all I ever did was be there when she needed me the most. Let her go before she really begins to weigh you down.
