It’s that time of year again where we take time to support one of the most important causes of our lives. While many of us our busy taking care of work, kids, family and life in general, we may overlook the importance of taking care of ourselves. October has been well known to serve as a month honoring those we have lost, those learning and those fighting breast cancer. Every bit of support possible is needed to help this cause and bring awareness to those who need it the most. So with that in mind, Curvy wants you to take this month and think pink….. Check out these products you can get that will provide the proceeds to this great cause:
In 2000, nubar was founded as the healthy alternative for beautiful nails. After being affected by cancer within his own family, nubar’s creative force, Noubar Abrahamian, was committed to producing the highest quality nail care products that were free of formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP (phthalate). These common ingredients are included in California’s Proposition 65, which lists chemicals known to cause cancer, birth defects, or reproductive harm, and nubar’s exclusive formula omits these components as well as their derivatives without sacrificing quality. We are dedicated to producing the most innovative and exciting nail care products available, with unique trend forward nail lacquers and nail art, state of the art artificial nails, and premium skin care necessities, all of which are vegan and cruelty free. Nubar’s, Support the Cure package gives 50% of sales in October back to City of Hope breast cancer research.

Made to order, these giant strawberries are dipped and covered with pink ribbons and pink & white swizzles.
chicBuds, the company known for such problem-solving products as retractable earphones and pocket speakers, has broken the traditional cord mold with the ARTS Series of flat, printed cords. The cords are made from a slippery material that allows them to slide apart rather than cling together, and keeps them from becoming knotted. Toss them into bags or purses and stop worrying about what will happen when it’s time to pull them out. Not only are consumers getting a highly-functional product, but also a new way to express their style. The flat design makes it possible for chicBuds to print on the actual earbud cords, creating a fun outlet for showing off. AND THEY ARE THE FIRST COMPANY TO EVER ACHIEVE THE TASK OF PRINTING ON FLAT CORDS SUCCESSFULLY! During the month of October 20% of all proceeds from chicBuds pink products will be donated to Breast Cancer Research.
