Cupcakes and more for Breast Cancer Awareness

Crumbspinkribboncupcake October 2009 marks the 25th anniversary of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (Click here to learn more about what causes breast cancer and what you can do to prevent it.)

Here are a few ways to do good while stuffing your face:

-- The Sprinklesmobile will be at USC on Tuesday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. All of the proceeds from its Pink Ribbon strawberry cupcakes will go to the EIF Women’s Cancer Research Fund.
-- Crumbs is offering Pink Ribbon vanilla and chocolate cupcakes through Oct. 15. For each of these cupcakes it sells, the company will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Coalition.
-- Cleavage Creek winery, founded by Budge Brown after he lost his wife of 48 years to breast cancer, donates 10% of its gross wine sales to breast cancer research.

And if you prefer shopping to eating, here are some fashion items that help support the cause.

I don't know how one becomes diabetic from eating a cupcake...but...we know it's all about moderation and cupakes offer just that...a perfect serving size without overindulging! A definite healthier choice! Raising money for any awareness is about togetherness, making memories, not just simply sitting down and writing a check..not to mention that there are those whose lives depend on their cupcake businesses and are willing to give of their times and their talents to support worthy causes...support these causes in anyway you choose and if it happens to be via the cupcake...Enjoy!

eat cupcakes for breast cancer then get diabetes!

Im all for a good cause too
Just donate the money people!

I'm all about eating cupcakes for a good cause. Thanks for the post!
