Recently, I was invited to Estee Lauder’s Pink Breakfast event. Estee Lauder Companies’ Beauty brands are devoted to defeating breast cancer by supporting education and medical research and that means four brands joining together to raise funds for the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation.
It was a lovely and intimate event where invited guests watched a touching video on how breast cancer has affected various families. This cause is close to my heart because one of my aunties fought a tough battle however, lost the battle to breast cancer. So, I would love to help out in any way that I can; and at this breakfast, that meant donating through a raffle.
Delicious and healthy food was served coupled by fresh juices, a lovely way to start the day.
We were also told that several products from Estee Lauder Companies will be a part of fundraising for this great cause which the public can purchase and a certain percentage will be donated.
The first is the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronised Recovery Complex II & Pink Ribbon Keychain
Estee Lauder’s #1 repair serum allows every woman to wake up to beautiful skin and they have introduced a Breast Cancer Awareness edition of Advanced Night Repair packaged with a Pink Ribbon Keychain and charm to show support and empower others to join the fight against breast cancer.

Back by popular demand, the Evelyn Lauder Dream Pin sparkles with contrasting soft pink and hot pink enamels, accented with two stones – one traditional BCA pink stone and a blue stone to represent the approximately 1% of all breast cancer cases in the United States that are diagnosed in men. This beautiful pin is the perfect accessory to spread awareness.

Here are some snapshots I took from the lovely event:
I took time off work to learn more about this breast cancer awareness campaign and I left the event feeling inspired and thought of all the strong women who are currently battling breast cancer, who have fought this disease or who have lost their lives to this terrible disease. There are various ways you can make a difference, and one of them is through purchasing one of the above products as a contribution towards research. Together, we will find a cure.
