Along with orange and black for Halloween, you’re likely to see a lot of pink this October, as it also happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The month is dedicated to raising awareness and funds for research to fight breast cancer. You can show support by wearing pink or donating, but many companies also help support the funding of research by releasing special items and donating a portion of proceeds from their products.
Cape Cod potato chips is doing just that this October, releasing a limited-edition chip and donating some of the proceeds to breast cancer research. Their pink Himalayan salt & red wine vinegar potato chips feature tangy red wine vinegar and savory pink Himalayan salt for an irresistible combo.
The brand is partnering with the Susan F. Smith Center for Women’s Cancers at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to donate 5% of proceeds, or 12 cents of every purchase, to benefit cancer research. You can find the chips during the month of October in most major grocery stores, including Walmart and Target.
Looking for more ways to support breast cancer research through your purchases this fall? Take a look at just a few products that also donate a portion of their proceeds during the month of October to breast cancer research and patient support:
