Nearly everyone knows that breast cancer is represented with a pink ribbon. It is just one of the many different colors of cancer bracelets that you can get these days. Along with the ribbon for breast cancer, there are many different places that are selling pink breast cancer merchandise. One of the first companies to start was Avon. Every year they would come out with a new pen and a lapel pin and the proceeds would go to breast cancer research. October has been declared breast cancer awareness month. There is even the Breast Cancer Site online that you can buy clothing, accessories, jewelry and other pink breast cancer merchandise and the proceeds help women get free mammograms.
There are many companies that also sell products in the grocery stores during the month of October that have the pink ribbons on them and if you buy the product a percentage from that product sold will also go towards breast cancer research. It is a great thing that these companies are doing for breast cancer research. At first, the merchandise was limited to just a few pieces of jewelry and a couple of t-shirts. Theses days, you can find items from certain companies that are only offered for a short time that are done in the traditional pink color. The Company, Provo Craft created a pink Cricut machine that came with a special cartridge for breast cancer. This was only available for a short time and has since been discontinued.
KitchenAid has many products for breast cancer. Not only do the have a mixer that is pink, but they have many other appliances and small tools for the kitchen that you can get in pink with the signature ribbon on them.

They also sell Christmas ornaments that you can get either as a remembrance or to signify someone close to you beating breast cancer.
