THE IT LIST
The product: Hudson’s Bay Company Breast Cancer Research Foundation Scarf, $21
Why we love it: October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and one of the easiest (and most fashionable) ways to support the cause is by purchasing an item or garment that sees full or partial proceeds from the sale go toward a cancer research foundation.
A large variety of retailers and brands are offering products that help fund the cause this month, including the Hudson’s Bay Company. The retailer revealed its latest breast cancer research benefiting scarf style — a perfectly cute, perfectly cosy piece — so you can wrap up this winter season to stay warm, while also joining the battle against breast cancer.
The oversized blanket style is crafted from a soft, nubby fabric and features a white-and-pink plaid print. It’s sure to look chic when thrown over your favourite wool coat, or left on the back of your chair at the office so you can throw it on during especially chilly days at work.
Throughout the month of October, $13 from the sale of each of the Hudson’s Bay Company scarves will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Keeping cosy while also helping to raise funds for breast cancer research? Sounds like a perfect fit to us.
