Support Breast Cancer Awareness By Shopping

Written by: Nikola Zugic on 08/10/2015 08:45

As we are sure you are aware October is breast cancer awareness month. A whole month dedicated to educating and informing as many people as possible, as to the very serious issue of breast cancer; including where to look for advice and what you can do to help raise money. The event is being supported by the organisation Breakthrough who are running several events and have produced a range of desirable products in partnership with major high street brands and big names in fashion; to raise money for the worthwhile cause.

Support the cause by shopping

If you love shopping (the girls at Bingo-reviewer HQ certainly do) then supporting the breakthrough breast cancer campaign is much simpler than you think. When you visit the breakthrough website you will notice that you can donate, read useful information and shop. The most interesting part is that if you shop for any of the products on the website a percentage of product price will be donated to Breakthrough breast cancer.

You can buy clothes, fashion items, electronics, and things for the home and even donate by using a branded credit card. The big names include M&S, Samsung, The White Company, Adidas, Avon and GHD. They even receive support from the brand new pink ribbon bingo.

The Bingo-reviewer girls didn't waste any time in picking their favourite items to show their support for Breakthough. Here's our team's pick...


Knowing that breast cancer may effect one in every nine women was quite a shock for me. My Aunt has survived breast cancer, and with that understanding plus the figures provided by Breakthrough you can truly imagine that it is hard to find any one of us whose life has not been in some way touched by this. I therefore chose to support Breakthrough by buying one of their supported products.

41RxE21SXvL._SX85_SH35_.jpgI do love a cardie, so it took me all of five minutes to decide on this gorgeous little pink 1950's style, long-sleeved cardie with front pockets. It's available now from M & S and 10% of the sale price goes to Breakthrough.

Available from M & S, or go to the Breakthrough Shop, to see all of the supported products.

Like the majority of the girls in the Bingo-Reviewer office I love a spot of shopping, so I jumped at the chance to be able to help a charity and treat myself to some new clothes at the same time.  The item that particulary caught my eye was a pale pink graphic baggy t-shirt from Warehouse, that would just look amazing with a pair of black leggings and some knee high boots.  The even better news is that an impressive 20% of the sale of this amazing tee will go to Breakthrough!
