Give back!

Women with breast cancer can sometimes feel pretty alone, but they don't need to. Whether you're supporting a gal pal with the disease or just want to give back to the cause with your girlfriends, we've got a few fun ideas for you.

Get sweet

Who says indulging in the sweet things in life can't also give back to a good cause? I love chocolate and cupcakes more than just about anything, and I have a feeling most ladies are the same way. So here's an idea: Grab your girls for a night of sweets that give back! Order up a variety of treats that give back to the BCA cause, kick back and indulge guilt-free.

Edward Marc Chocolatier's BCA Pink Salted Caramel Apples

Georgetown Cupcake

Two of my picks? Edward Marc Chocolatier's BCA Pink Salted Caramel Apples -- covered in caramel and chocolate! -- and Georgetown Cupcake's Susan G. Komen Cupcakes. One hundred percent of online sales from the apples and the full purchase price of each cupcake sold will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure. Pretty sweet, right?

Teleflora's Pink Hope and Courage Bouquet

Flowers

I don't know a woman who doesn't like receiving flowers, do you? This October, try thinking outside the box a bit with your girlfriends. Send a beautiful bouquet of flowers to a friend battling breast cancer, a survivor, a family member or even a random stranger.

Here's an idea: Look up a local breast cancer clinic and pool your money to donate a few bouquets. The flowers are sure to brighten the patients' day! One to try? Teleflora's Pink Hope and Courage Bouquet ($53, teleflora.com). All year long, the company is donating 15 percent of the suggested retail price to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation!

Ecco Biom Trainers from The Walking Company

Walk the walk

It's quite a simple idea, but joining in on a breast cancer awareness walk is a great way to support the cause with your girls, and get fit at the same time. Look one up online in your area, grab a cute pink ensemble and some stylish sneaks -- try these adorable Ecco Biom Trainers from The Walking Company ($150, thewalkingcompany.com). Five percent of the purchase will be donated to City of Hope!
