The Importance of Giving Back, Day Three

Every day this week, myself, along with other bloggers/content creators are banding together to show why it's important to each and every one of us to "give back". Giving back to your community or causes that are important to you and your family is something that not only leaves you feeling good but truly can make an impact in people's lives. We've all pooled together our own money to make donations to a different, very worthwhile charity each day this week. We aren't millionaires and we can all certainly say that we are busy but we thought it was important at this time of year to show that being charitable isn't something we do to be stylish, it's something we do because we care about others less fortunate than we are. Along with our donations, we encourage you to make small donations yourself (just click on through) because every little but counts. We promise, it will make you feel awesome... and because we like to have a little fun as well, there's a giveaway each day! You heard me- each day, a fantastic brand, who believed this was an amazingly cool and worthy project is offering up a giveaway to the readers who visited to learn about a great charity, some fabulous ladies and a cool brand. Today we are teaming up with The Paper Store to support the Breast Cancer Foundation!

On Tap for Today

Today's donation was made to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer. They provide critical funding for cancer research worldwide to fuel advances in tumor biology, genetics, prevention, treatment, metastasis and survivorship. In 2016-2017, the BCRF will award $57 million in annual grants to more than 250 scientists from top universities and medical institutions around the globe. In addition, BCRF has established the Evelyn H. Lauder Founder’s Fund, a multi-year international program dedicated to metastasis that is the first large-scale global effort to unravel the biology of metastasis, with more than $30 million earmarked to date. It is the largest privately funded project exclusively focused on metastasis in the world. But they still have more to work to do and that's why we support them today.


So what else is amazing about this series? Besides the amazing women and their commitments to giving back? We're working with brands who wanted to be involved because, well, they are awesome too and wanted to get in on the fun of spreading good cheer, good vibes and bringing attention to charities that we've personally donated to! Today, The Paper Store has offered one reader the opportunity to help out with their holiday gift giving by giving away a $100 gift card!
