Breast Cancer Awareness Month is approaching quickly, and two of your favorite beauty retailers are doing big things to support the important cause. This October, Birchbox has teamed up with The Estée Lauder Companies to create an exclusive beauty box tied to breast cancer awareness (yes—the box is a pretty pink!). This must-have special delivery will be stocked up with an assortment of desirable skincare and makeup goodies from The Estée Lauder Companies’ top notch brands—think everything from Clinique’s iconic moisturizer to Prescriptives intense lash mascara. In addition to the luxe samples, the box will also come with the staple pink ribbon pin to wear all-month-long, as well and more information about this great cause.

More specifically, this special-edition assortment of beauty essentials is in lieu of The Estée Lauder Companies’ Breast Cancer Awareness (BCA) Campaign. That said, Birchbox has committed to donating 104,000 dollars to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF), which is the nation's highest-rated breast cancer organization. This generous donation will in turn fund an entire year of breast cancer lab research hours (how amazing is that?!). “We are thrilled to partner with Birchbox,” said Myra Biblowit, BCRF President. “The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is the only A+ rated breast cancer organization in the U.S. by CharityWatch. You can be sure that the contribution by Birchbox will directly impact breast cancer research.”

It's time for you to raise awareness! Beginning today, Birchbox subscribers can opt to have this sent as their alternative October box. In fact, this could be the perfect time to start your Birchbox subscription. Sign up today to get the Breast Cancer Awareness box as your first one—just $10 per month or $110 per year. Better yet, learn more about what you can do to raise awareness or make a donation to BCRF here.
