For a Good Cause

I love buying expensive things, ESPECIALLY, when a part of it comes to a good cause. Funny as it may seem, I often splurge on notebooks that says 5% goes to this institution bla bla. To date, I actually have five more free to be used as a diary, reminder, assignment, or whatever-you-may-call-it notebook. 

Speaking of charity... 

Pink for Life is a SEC-Registered Non-Profit Non-Stock Foundation. It was formed in March 2007 to help out patients with stage 1 and 2 breast cancer. Their aim is to give as much as 70% off discounts to treatment, medications, chemos, etc. to the patients. The Foundation gets its funds through fund raising events, private donors and from the Metrobank Foundation. 

Today, Pink for Life already helped close to 400 patients. The Foundation helps and supports people in the Metro Manila for now but, hopefully, it will soon expand to national level.

If you have stage 1 and 2 breast cancer and you need help, Pink for Life can help you out. Just present your pathology results to the Foundation and you can get your chemo meds through the Biomedis Med Representatives.

Pink for life together with Bench

Scents For Life
Two of the country’s leaders in their respective fields have partnered to bring you “Scents for Life”, a unique fragrance offering that aims to make a tangible difference in the lives of people afflicted with breast cancer.

Pink for Life Foundation has been providing deeply subsidized chemotherapy treatments for women with stage 1 and 2 breast cancer. The Foundation has helped over 200 women in Luzon cope with the demanding financial burden of the disease by paying for us much as 70 percent of the chemotherapy medication. It is Pink For Life's goal to continue offering assistance where it is most needed. This year, the Foundation hopes to extend the benefits of the program to the Visayas and Mindanao.

Bench, the country’s number one lifestyle store, has always been very aware and involved in various civic endeavors to help the less fortunate. When the opportunity came to be able to aid in the fight of women against breast cancer, Bench enthusiastically and generously took up the challenge.

Bench was instrumental in developing two desirable fragrances, aptly called Faith and Inspire. Both these Eau de toilettes are made with oils from Grasse, France. A part of the sales of these colognes will go directly to Pink for Life Foundation, thus benefiting women who need medical support.

Faith EDT radiates a delicate mixture of optimism, confidence and comfort. Opening with a delightful blend of fizzy bergamot and luscious red berries, it later on creates a fresh floral scent through the fusion of white rose and lily of the valley.

Inspire EDT is a sparkling fragrance for independent, strong and free spirited women. It is a delectable mix of irresistible pink grapefruit and dainty iris flower, infused by a sensuously smooth base of creamy woods.

Enjoy the distinctive Scents For Life! Have Faith, Be Inspired……….Save a Life!

love, now and always,
