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!

Dear dish it, my friend first met eachother on the first day of kindergarten we sat next to one another and we became close. we were BFF's throughout 1st to 2nd grades. then, the second grade teacher realized there were alot of kids in the class. and same w the 3rd grade teacher. so, we had to have a split class. my friend was in the split. I was not. It all seemed like the teachers were doing somthing... weired. all the girls (well, almost there were only 6 girls on one half) were in the split. and all the boys were in regular . AND YOU KNOW WHAT ELSE WAS WEIRED! :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( :( all the boy BFF's and the girl BFF's were SPLIT. me and my friend,kids named Nia & Georgia, Isaac& Ethan, and more. it was so sad for all of us.2 months later, I got homschooled. 2 years later im back in public with my 4th grade self. everything had changed. a bunch of people were obsessed w\ a girl my age named kassidy. im neighbors w\ kassidy and she is REALLY cool and nice. but the whole I  [s:sm3/1jw1] kassidy crew got mean. if I asked them to play they would say. "If Kassidy is playing I will" or I would want to be parteners with kassidy on something and they would freak out. anyway jasmine NEVER invited my to anything, and I am trying to be nice to her ( ice cream money, homework help, comfort when sad, ect.) And not to mention I invited her to 3 things!!! on the bright side she came to 2 :thumbsup :thumbsup she also embarassed me by saying that she was moving I freaked out  because I cared about her and I would cry all the time. I even held onto her and said sadly, "PLEASE DON'T GO!!  :sad :sad . later i found out that she was not moving, she was going to CA for a vacation. even the teacher was in on it!! :mad :mad anyways, my parents told me that i should just let go of her. But i am not ready. HELP??? :e :e :e :e :e

When I was a child I wanted glasses SOO bad, cuz I wanted to copy my mom and sister. And also, I thought they looked cool. I wear glasses now. I have had them for 2 years and honestly I don't mind them. Although, this year I am gonna pry get contacts for swimming better and stuff like that. But if you don't need glasses I wouldn't recommend wearing them. They're not bad, but trust me after a while you will pry not like them as much. But hey, that's my opinion. If you want to do it I'm not gonna stop you. Do what makes you happy in the long run. And tell your friends that they are non prescription if you don't need them, but still get some.

I agree I was afraid of that first too. Eventually I just began inviting my friends over and they don't use it/practically obsess over it like I do but they understood why I use kidzworld and not many other forms of social media.

They would put me in trouble for falling in love. They believe I can't date until age 20. Aw, well, my advice for you would be to talk to your parents about it. There's no point trying to sneak around like those films and it is better for your mind if you talk to them about it. It can be super difficult I know but if you and your parents get along really well then you guys can talk about it and make it work. On the other hand, if your parents ban you from falling in love as you put it, then I think it's better just to stay as friends with him.
