Hello my beauties!  It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month so today’s post is a little bit different.  Throughout October, both Milk & Co and Goldwell are helping to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation, by donating $1 from selected products towards this amazing charity.

The money raised will be going towards helping the McGrath Foundation place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia.  This service is free of charge and can be accessed by self referral for any woman suffering with breast cancer, from the time of diagnosis and throughout her treatment.  The nurses provide invaluable physical, psychological and emotional support for patients, which is not only helpful, but essential.

The Foundation is also using funds to increase breast awareness in young Australians, as it is not a cancer that discriminates against age.  I have been hearing more and more stories lately about young women fighting breast cancer and surviving, or sadly losing the battle – Jane McGrath herself, was diagnosed at just 31.  Early detection by self awareness and examination is crucial for successful treatments and quick recoveries, so  Curve Lurve, the foundation’s new initiative, is educating our younger sisters to take charge of their own breast health and wellbeing.

If you would like to support this very worth cause just by buying lovely things, then look out for these Goldwell products : Super Hold Hair Lacquer and Elixir, both packaged in bright pink, featuring the McGrath Foundation logo.  You can also make a contribution by purchasing any of the Milk & Co women’s range from their online store.  I’ve got a couple of Milk & Co favourites already, and I’m also keen to try the Body Scrub and Facial Wipes, which have the same dual action as the Crop ones… and you know how much they excited the pants (and flaky skin) off of me.

Alternatively, you can go to the McGrath Foundation website and make a donation, or check out other ways you can support your sisters.  So go forth and shop or donate, knowing that you are contributing positively to the health and happiness of someone else.

Kind Beauty Points : Apart from the obvious, both brands are also cruelty free.
