Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness in Style - BTSH Around The House Tip of the Week

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Beyond The Stage Homes is Thinking PINK! Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among Canadian women. A great way to show your support for breast cancer research is by simply purchasing a “pink” product. I have done the research for you, and found a few pink items I think no home should be without.

KitchenAid® Mixer—Cook for the Cure® Edition

KitchenAid® blew us away a few years ago when they introduced to us the hottest new kitchen appliance, the retro style stand mixer. Not only is this a must have appliance for even your average baker, it’s a fashion statement for your kitchen. While these are available in a variety of colours, I have to suggest Pink, as they are donating an incredible $50 from the sale of every one of these towards the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (CBCF). Available at Home Outfitters, Sears, and The Bay.

Snuggle Up To A Cure

The Classic Comfort Company has created a pillow drive, with 10% of all proceeds from the sale of their Pink Pillows going towards the CBCF. They are committed to donating a minimum of $50,000, but have set a goal to raise $100,000. These pillows are available online for only $24.99. They are also available at a variety of stores across Canada. For the location nearest you, please visit them online at http://www.snuggleuptoacure.com.

Pittsburgh Paints

Pittsburgh Paints offers many great products, but probably one of their brightest ideas yet is their new NO MISS Ceiling Paint. The paint goes on pink, allowing you to see where you have painted and where you haven’t, but dries to a brilliant white finish. Right now, for every gallon of the NO MISS Ceiling Paint sold, Pittsburgh Paints will contribute $1.50 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. To find the location nearest you, visit http://www.pittsburghpaints.com. In Kitchener/Waterloo, you can find their products at Innovation Paints on Gage.


The Hudson’s Bay company has also introduced a few products in support of the CBCF, and are donating 100% of the proceeds! One product that they have included is this pink candle, which will light up any room in your home.
