BCA Month: 11 Gifts that Make a Difference

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and this year I will be showcasing brands that are generous enough to make a donation for each BCA item purchased. Every dollar counts when it comes to raising money for such an important cause - even a $1 donation makes a difference. So, please find a way to donate this year by making a donation to a participating organization or by purchasing one of these fabulous items for yourself or someone else.  

If you are planning on doing some shopping anytime soon for the upcoming holidays, birthdays, etc., please consider purchasing products like these that will make a difference. Here are some fab BCA gifts and all of them will be making a donation of at least 10% and some of them up to 50%. Now, that's generous!
