Traditionally the theme of the month October is the battle against breast cancer, in the shape of the well-known international Pink Ribbon campaign. The mission of Pink Ribbon is to enhance the attention for this type of cancer that still affects so many women all over the world today.
Numerous organisations contribute to the campaign by smaller and bigger actions.
We from Frenchonista sympathize with all of them of course.
One initiative we particularly like to highlight is the Magic Mitt action of Hélène V. For each Magic Mitt by Jane Iredale that is sold, Hélène V donates € 2,- to KWF kankerbestrijding in the Netherlands and Think Pink in Belgium.
This money goes to continuous research for a cure for cancer and the improvement of cancer patient’s quality of life.
By purchasing a Magic Mitt, you do not only contribute to the good cause, but you introduce a bit of magic in your own life as well: the microfiber glove removes all make-up – including mascara – with the use of warm water only. We say: money very well spent!
(The Magic Mitt by Jane Iredale is available for € 17,- via www.helene-v.com)
