DownEast Basics Live for Pink {Breast Cancer Awareness}

A few weeks ago I was invited to an event to help DownEast Basics kick off their “Live for Pink” sales event.  Through October 14, 2012, customers can purchase special limited edition “LIVE for Pink” tees and  DownEast will donate 50 percent of the sales – up to $25,000 – to charitable organization grant recipients. These organizations have each been selected to receive contributions to support their work relating to breast cancer awareness, education, assistance for victims and other endeavors.
Through its previous “LIVE for Pink” events from 2008 through 2011, DownEast has raised over $88,000 in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

DownEast’s limited edition of the LIVE for Pink tees are available online and in DownEast stores.

This year proceeds will support the Arizona Bosom Buddies Breast Cancer Support Group and the Arizona Institute for Breast Health.  

Bosom Buddies of Arizona is is an organization of caring volunteers who have personal experience dealing with the challenges of breast cancer. Their mission is to provide support through the sharing of common experiences and knowledge.

The Arizona Institute for Breast Health is a non-profit organization whose mission is to give all women diagnosed with breast cancer a second opinion about their treatment options, while educating and supporting them along the way – completely free of charge.

My daughter attended the kick off event with me.  She had a great time!  

I gave my daughter my iPhone to take pictures of some of her favorite items in the store.  She wanted one of everything!

She was so excited to take some items into the dressing room all by herself.  She came out several times in new clothes and twirled around in front a mirror.  She even stopped to ask the sweet manager, “what do you think?”

The store already has amazing prices but we were there during their “save an extra 50% on sales items” sale. Lucky us!  My daughter came home with two pairs of super cute capris and a fun pair of shorts.  

I picked up two shirts for myself including the Worlds Apart Blouse.

DownEast gave me one of their shirts included in the Live for Pink sale as a thank you for attending the event.  It’s so soft and pretty!

Long Sleeve Tee – Live for Pink

I ended up purchasing three bottoms for my daughter, two tops for myself, and the Live for Pink long sleeve tee.  Do you want to guess how much I spent?  Less than $15!!!!!!  Great clothes, great sale, great cause!  You still have a few days to take part in the Live for Pink sale.
