Breast-cancer research organizations, doctors, and patients are continually amazed at how many people donate to fight this terrible disease. It’s always special when you can donate to a worthy cause when you purchase gifts, and here are four great gift ideas that help stop breast cancer.
A perfect gift for your favorite grill master, Grill Charms are dime-sized stainless steel discs with serrated stems that are inserted in food before grilling. The charm stays in place during the cooking process to distinguish each person’s food. Grill Charms are perfect for those who like their food cooked a certain way, or for those who may be allergic to certain foods or spices.
The inventor of Grill Charms, Leslie Haywood, was diagnosed with breast cancer not long after she began the company. She created The Pink Collection and donates 10% of each sale to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.
“Yes Ma’am, mammograms are a must!” says the pink Yes Ma’am Tee, created by Lee McCracken of Charlotte, NC. Lee was diagnosed with breast cancer and came to us in 2009 for reconstruction. The tees are $20 and can be ordered from the website, and Lee donates 15% of the sale of each tee to help pay for screenings for uninsured and underinsured women through the Carolinas Breast Cancer Fund.
If you would like to partner with Lee to raise funds for uninsured and underinsured women in your city, contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

You may have noticed NFL players wearing pink lately to bring awareness to breast cancer. The NFL shop has launched their own program, A Crucial Check, a collaboration with the American Cancer Society to bring awareness to the importance of annual breast cancer screenings for women 40 and over.
The pink apparel worn by coaches and players, along with special game balls and pink game coins, will be auctioned at NFL Auction, with the proceeds going to team charities and the American Cancer Society. You can also support the fight against breast cancer by purchasing special merchandise at www.nflshop.com.
