October Cancer Awareness: 5 Ways To Shop Pink Under $100!

th-5October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, but having recently lost my mother to Lymphoma I’m urging everyone to do all they can to support all cancer organizations.  An excellent way to contribute to cancer research is to purchase products that donate portions of their sales.

Here are five (5) awesome pink products under $100 that give back:

– This is an awesome gadget to inspire you and keep better track of your health. I especially like that it tracks sleep and gave me quite a shock at how poorly my sleep is. You can also track your weight loss, food diary, work outs, water intake and even create a group to workout with your friends. The dashboard keeps track on your tablet, laptop or phone with a free app. $10 from every sale is donated to the American Cancer Society.
