To help raise funds and awareness for National Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Latisha Kenya Murray of Like a Celebrity, LLC and Qiana L. Williams of Writings of the Goddess, rallied together for the cause with generous support from socially conscious entrepreneurs and emerging lifestyle brands.

#ShopforaCure offered an eclectic group of small businesses a unique opportunity to market, promote, and sell their goods and services while supporting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a charity committed to finding a cure for breast cancer and raising awareness about good breast health.

The charitable shopping soiree attracted between 100-150 friends, supporters, and donors on the pink carpet at Copia on 10/30/2013. Donations will continue past October and run throughout the year in support of the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Donations can be made here.
