In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, many business and organizations are coming together to show their support by offering prideful pink products. Here are some of the ways bakeries are showing their support for people fighting breast cancer and survivors of the disease:
Financier Patisserie’s chef Eric Bedoucha created a sleeve of Pink French Macarons (raspberry-flavored) to help raise awareness and money for the cause. For each sleeve of seven macarons that is sold (retails for $10.50), Financier will donate $1 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The boxes will be on sale from Oct. 15 to Oct. 31, 2013 in all 10 New York City Financier locations.
Three Brothers Bakery in Houston is showing its support with dozens of sweet, pink treats for the month of October. From pink ribbon cookies to delectable petits fours, this bakery is making sure that you show the love in all of your sweet endeavors. A portion of the sales will go to Janice's (one of the owners and a survivor) Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure fundraising campaign.
Magnolia Bakery is raising a ton of awareness with its pink cupcake. They are currently supporting The Pink Agenda, a nonprofit organization raising funds for breast cancer research and care. For each cupcake sold, $1.75 goes directly to The Pink Agenda. Magnolia is also donating to The Lebanese Breast Cancer Foundation, an organization that works to increase awareness, improve early detection of breast cancer, and support women with breast cancer. For every Pink Ribbon cupcake purchased, $1 goes to the organization. And finally, the bakery is working with the Qatar Cancer Society, one of the leading humanitarian organizations in Qatar that looks to increase awareness on the disease. For every cupcake sold, the Doha store will donate to the organization.
