Think Pink – Donate & Win Giveaway

in Breast Cancer Awareness

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and as important as it is to raise awareness by promoting monthly self exams it’s also essential to support breast cancer research. That’s why I will be showing my support by raising funds for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. To assist me in my cause, I am asking for your help in two ways.

1. I will be participating in the the Beauty Blog Network’s Comments4ACure campaign for the 3rd straight year. Beginning October 21st through October 23rd every comment made on ALU will raise $1 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation up to a maximum of $150. It’s that simple. You comment, I donate.

2. Following up the success of last year’s Think Pink – Donate & Win Giveaway I’ve decided to do it again. Last year we raised $625 for a combined contribution of $775 for the BCRF. That’s amazing! This year I’d like to surpass that amount with a goal of $1000. Here’s how it works:

For every $5 you donate to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation using the secure ChipIn widget (below), you receive an entry in the Think Pink – Donate & Win Giveaway. You have from now until October 31st to enter. From the pool of donations I will choose, at random, ONE Grand Prize Winner and TWO Runner Up Winners.

Grand Prize with pink ribbon products sponsored by Estee Lauder, Altru, Aveda, Clinique, China Glaze, DuWop, ELF, Essie, OPI, Prescriptives, Purple Lab, Seche and Twist & Pout and a selection of products from the ALU closet.

Package includes: Aveda Hand Relief, Clinique Lipgloss Key Chain, Estee Lauder Jeweled Pink Ribbon Pin, Prescriptives Pink Ribbon Palette for Cheeks and Eyes, China Glaze One in Three set, DuWop Pink Shimmer Lip Venom, ELF Bubble Gum Pink, Essie Yes We Can, Pink, OPI Pink of Hearts 3, Purple Lab SWAC “Sealed With A Cure” lip gloss, Seche Vite Pink Ribbon Top Coat, Altru Appreciation Incense, Twist & Pout Pink Ribbon Lip Balm, Barielle All Lacquered Up collection, Rescue Beauty Lounge Mismas, Nubar Modern Matte collection, China Glaze Loves You Snow Much collection, China Glaze Summer Days collection, MAC Baby Goth Girl and Seriously Hip, Hard Candy Mr. Wrong and Fishnet, It Cosmetics Nail Love cuticle pen and Ms. Manicure Call Your Buff.

Runner Up Prize

TWO Winners will receive the Runner Up prize package that includes Altru Appreciation Incense, China Glaze One in Three set, Essie Yes We Can, Pink, OPI Pink of Hearts 3, Seche Vite Pink Ribbon Top Coat and a bottle of Rescue Beauty Lounge Mismas.

    I just donated but it's not showing up in your box just yet – hopefully it does soon!

    I think it takes time to update. I've heard that other girls using this widget have had the same issue. I see the donations on my ChipIn dashboard so they are going through. As long as you get your PayPal confirmation, you are set.

    Thanks so much for doing this :)

  4. Shattered says:

    I think we can easily make that goal – you just made the post and look at how much has already been donated!

    I want to thank you as well for doing this. Breast cancer became my big cause when I was 13; my aunt was diagnosed at Stage 4, and she spent the last year of her life fighting so hard.

    What a great idea! Our mother is still fighting breast cancer, so we understand how important it is to continue funding as much research as possible for a cure.

  9. Kasey says:

    Amazing idea! Hope you reach your goal :)

    Hi Michelle: Is there any way to donate to the "Think Pink" without using Pay Pal? I don't feel secure with pay Pal, regarding their last history and records being stolen and never recovered.

    I would rather just pay using a credit card directly if that is okay with you. Please let me know.

    (((((Love Michelle))))

    I had breast cancer last year–my doctors told me 20 years ago I would have had an automatic masectomy, radiation, & chemotherapy. Thanks to the advances in research, my treatment consisted of only radiation & 5 years of tamaxofin.
    Research is so impoetant in tretment of this horrible disease.
