Laura Mercier's Speak Out for Hope Launch

Laura Mercier announces the launch of its  Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund, which raises awareness and funds research and educational efforts that will help diagnose, treat and support women with ovarian cancer. Please visit their Fund's website. It is one of the best beauty product's philanthropy sites I've seen. Most important, the message is about ovarian cancer and the information they share is very valuable. Then, they support their mission with their cause marketing campaign, Speak to Hope.

Ovarian cancer is the fifth leading cause of death among women in the United Sates and since September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month, it is the perfect time for the launch of the Fund. Laura Mercier will donate 100% of the profits from the sale of the Bonne Mine palette and the Rose Hope Lip GlacĂ© to the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. These two beauty products will be available at all Laura Mercier retail stores.

The Bonne Mine palette retails for ($48) and the Rose Hope Lip Glace sells for ($24). Shop for a hope at the Laura Mercier online store.

Sweet Swimwear and Charity

Summer is my favorite season!  The best part of summer is the sun, the surf, snow cones and my birthday. Every year since the age of 5, I would get a new bathing suit and I made such a big deal of picking the right one. I prefer pretty one-piecers. Well, I fell in love with the swim wear line from Lime Ricki. This collection has summer colors and a summer sweatness that is just my style.  Even better, Lime Ricki, makes it a priority to give back.

Lime Ricki donates 10% of every pink suit to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Lime Ricki gives 10% of all other suit sales to Charity Water, an organization that brings clean and safe drinking water to developing nations.

Summer isn't over yet! So stop by Lime Ricki and help make a difference.
