October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This terrible disease can happen to anyone and there is no cure. But this month I'm contributing to the research that may help just by doing something that I do every weekend anyway—cleaning. Two companies are encouraging us to "clean for a cure." Purchase pink cleaning products from Swiffer and Oreck and a portion of the proceeds will go to organizations that are working to find a cure for breast cancer.
The products are:
- Swiffer dusters and sweepers. ($4.29 - $10.99). A portion of the proceeds from the limited edition pink dusters and sweepers will go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Look for them in your local grocery store. (Pictured)
- Oreck XL Power Team Vacuum. ($449.95) Oreck will make a $25 donation to Susan G. Komen for the Cure with each purchase.
2 more pink products:
- CureCard letterpress note cards and envelopes. ($14) 20 percent of the sales of this design will be donated to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. (Pictured)
- Hand-painted pink ribbon martini glasses. ($24) A portion of the proceeds from these glasses go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure
