IN OCTOBER WE WEAR PINK
Sit down, grab a cup of coffee or tea and let’s talk all things PINK.
October for many women around the world is a month known for breast cancer awareness, it is a time in which we all unite forces, distinct companies and brands contribute to this life threatening cause. As stated in nwhn.org “1 in 8 women are diagnosed with breast cancer. Throughout increased awareness and treatments, a women’s risk of dying from breast cancer has dropped almost 40% between 1989 and 2015.”
Having the ability to have access to many resources, medicines and technology I believe that now a days, it is extremely important to get checked regularly. For me and for the rest I know the word CANCER is scary and you automatically relate it to DEATH, but I believe that to be utterly and completely wrong.
My whole entire life I have been surrounded by beautiful, strong and independent women who have become my role model and have proven me that us women are “ BERRACAS” as JETLAGMODE’S founder would say; which means brave and courageous in Spanish. We are all fighters in our own beautiful and unique way. I bet you all have an amazing tribe and support system such as your friends and family who want nothing but the best for you, so go get CHECKED and make sure your friends are ok.
Fashion and beauty have always taken a big part in helping raise awareness for breast cancer, organizations such as BECCA makeup, Kendra Scott, Ralph Lauren, Stella McCartney, and now us at JETLAGMODE are joining to help this incredible cause.
By purchasing ones our spectacular handmade “Salsa Dancer” earrings made with sustainable materials you are encouraging a sister, a friend or a loved one to get their monthly checkups!
Not only a percentage of the sales are being donated, but here you can see another example of how great women do when we join forces, with Caro our gorgeous founder we’ve helped you style these “Salsa Dancers”, now it’s time to take them out for a dance!
