Nottingham, UK (PRWEB) October 10, 2008
Boots has revealed that it hopes, with the help of its customers, to reach the £4m donation mark for the charity Breast Cancer Care, as this year's Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins.
Boots (http://www.boots.com ) has supported Breast Cancer Care for the past eleven years, and during that time has raised almost £3.5m pounds for them. This year, Boots hopes to break the £4m pound barrier with the help of staff and customers.
Once again No7, the UK's largest cosmetic brand, is selling some beautiful products with a donation to Breast Cancer Care. This year, No7 has created two exclusive limited edition Breast Cancer Care products (http://www.boots.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10052&productId=641477 ), with 20% of the purchase price being donated to the charity for every one sold. The No7 Breast Cancer Care All-Over face Powder is embossed with a pink Breast Cancer care ribbon in the center of the shimmery compact which helps skin look fresh during the winter months. Followers of this season's trend for natural looking lips can also support a worthy cause with the No7 Breast Cancer Care Lip Gloss.
There are also other 'pink ribbon products' available to buy, from a kabuki brush with its own pink pouch through to pink ribbon nail files, a key charm and a compact mirror. Stores will also be selling pink ribbon key rings and pin badges featuring the new Breast Cancer Care ribbon design. In addition, No7 teams around the country will join in the fun with some innovative fund-raising ideas.
Breast cancer is now the most common cancer in the UK, with almost 46,000 people diagnosed every year. Breast Cancer Care is there for anyone affected by breast cancer. They bring people together, provide information and support, and campaign for improved standards of care. They use their understanding of people's experience of breast cancer and their professional expertise in everything they do.

In 2007 Boots raised approximately £2.4million for their chosen charities.
