Support B4BC with 2011 products

18 Oct, 2010

October to me means the beginning of the snowboard season as the temperatures drop and the first resorts begin to open for snowboarding.  But October also is the month to recognize Domestic Violence and Breast Cancer Awareness.  Both of these can happen in ski resort towns around the world, no matter who you are…every woman has a 1 in 4 chance of being in an abusive relationship and for breast cancer it’s less than 1 in 8 women.  Both are humble reminders of what women might encounter during their lives which means educate yourself and help support good causes.  One of those good causes to support is Boarding for Breast Cancer (B4BC) who every season partner with different companies to create products that donate a portion of the sales back to B4BC.

For the 10-11 season, I wanted to showcase some of the products coming out that give back to boobs and are a bit more supportive than a bra.  You can support B4BC by just buying a t-shirt, getting headphones, picking up new goggles or buying that brand new snowboard.  Companies like K2 Snowboards gives a portion of their sales from the women’s products to B4BC.  There are plenty of ways to keep up the support and make sure you hit up B4BC to find out everything about what they do.

Just click on each photo to head to that product’s information on their webpage.

    Thank-you for remembering that October is also DV awareness month. I work for a battered women’s shelter Aurora, CO and one of the problems we often encounter is that so many people refuse to recognize that DV is an issue in their communities. Local media outlets will go to breast cancer prevention, teen suicide awareness, or LGBT rallies but they never bother to attend DV events. And that’s one of the biggest parts of the problem- when people stay silent and pretend that DV doesn’t exist, it sends a message to batterers that their behavior is somehow okay. So thank-you for telling people about DV awareness month, because acknowledging the problem is the first step to fixing it.

    On a lighter note: Loveland opens tomorrow! I’m so pumped!
