I love October! You still have some lingering warm weather, you have football tailgating and you can find just about anything in pink this month. October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and in support many companies show their support by holding fundraising events and making special products in pink. So with the pink out month I always seem to acquire a few new pink clothes and products. Not that I ever need a reason to go pink!

For today's Tuesday Ten I have put together 10 great events that you can attend, places you can shop to show your support of the cause this month.

1. Donate Online. The easiest way to giveback to the cause is through donating. The Breast Cancer Research Foundation is one of the leading foundations in having their donations going towards research and awareness programs.

2. Sign up for a Race. Find a Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure event to attend near you that raises money and awareness for breast health. 

3. Run Pink. Even if you can't find a race where you live you can still support the cause with a pair of these pink running shoes from Asics.

4. Local Fundraiser. Find a local organization that hosts an event that supports the cause like Martha's Market, the event I attended this past weekend, where you can shop to raise money to help those in your area. 

5. Attend a Fashion Show. There are a lot of fashion shows that are hosted during the month of October in support of breast cancer services. There was one this past Saturday that Lauren Conrad hosted in LA.

6. Pink Out. If you school or alma mater doesn't already have one help organize a game where all the fans and athletes pink out. Even the NFL is pinking out for the month of October. 

7. Host a Party. If there is not an event near you grab all your friends and host a Think Pink party. The blog, Blowout Party, has some great printables that you can use for your think pink party.

8. Eat Pink. Every year at Panera you can buy a pink ribbon bagel with a portion of the proceeds benefiting breast cancer charities. 

9.Pink Drink Night. Coordinate a happy hour at your local bar. Work with the bar owner to create a signature pink drink that when bought all the proceeds will be donated for the evening. 

10. Shop Pink. So many of your favorite companies offer a signature pink product this month that you can buy with all or a portion of the sale being donated to the cause. Tres Dope provides a great list of must-have items from your favorite brands.
I love being able to support the Go Pink cause in October and there are so many ways that you can! What is your favorite way that you like to go pink for the cause?
