October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, a month-long annual event to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer research. To support this worthy cause, many small businesses, in particular women-owned small businesses, sell pink products and donate a portion of the proceeds to charities and nonprofit organizations that support breast cancer research, breast cancer education, and providing mammograms to those women who may not otherwise be able to afford them.

And now that I am a small business owner, I am having my business, Prepster Pineapple Clothing, do its part. So for every pink Prepster Pineapple T-Shirt we sell between now and October 31st, we are going to donate $5 to breast cancer research — which I will personally match.

Not interested in buying a pink Prepster Pineapple t-shirt right no? No worries. But if you can afford to, please consider making a donation to one of the many excellent charities or organizations supporting breast cancer (and other types of cancer) research.
Know of other small businesses doing special promotions in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness month? Feel free to leave their name and URL in the Comments section.

Note: Shirts can only be sold and shipped to addresses within the 50 United States — and have flat rate shipping of $6.
