Pandora October 2014 Breast Cancer Awareness Promotions

pandora-october-breast-cancer-awareness-promoNext month is October which has been recently known as Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Pandora has a close relationship with this cause and every year in recent history they’ve done something special or made contributions towards finding a cure for this terrible disease.  For this year, Pandora Canada released the LE Survivor charm which is a ribbon engraved on the Unforgettable Moments dangle with proceeds going towards the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation (for details, click on the link).  This will be the only special charm debuting this year for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

pandora-australian-breast-cancer-2014The past few years, Australia has offered exclusive BCA products, but this year there is no new jewelry (picture is courtesy of a friend so please do not reproduce without crediting).  Instead, for the month of October, you can purchase the single strand pink leather bracelet with the Hope charm for $119AUD with a portion of the proceeds going towards Breast Cancer Research.  Both these items are available internationally so it’s not as special as last year’s matte pink triple strand leather bracelet or the Lucerne clips & dangle from 2009 and 2010.

Otherwise, in North America, Pandora will be making a 5% donation of proceeds from their pink collection towards the National Breast Cancer Foundation from October 1st – 31st.  These are the products included in the pink collection: the pink ribbon Murano, pink ribbon dangle, and the pink ribbon openworks.

Do you have any of these pink products?

    Anything for uk?

      Not that I’ve heard.

    It seems to me that Pandora has not put too much thought on the charm for this year. So far, Pandora has engraved several things on the Unforgettable Moments dangle, and it feels like they either didn’t put too much thought on this charm or just designed it in a hurry. At least Pandora is making a contribution to help find a cure!

    • Leann

      Yes, it seems like they’re taking the easy road and engraving the heck out of that dangle! I am ready for new designs…just engraving the same thing over and over doesn’t make it special.

    I would really like to see a charm for cancer in general. Or maybe a survivor charm. It’s not only breast cancer that happens, lots of other cancers that are not associated to pink!

    • Leann

      I completely agree! They should just do a silver ribbon or something.

    Leann do I have info on the Black Friday charm for this year

    • Leann

      Do I or do you? Lol.

      • Alyize Castano

        Lol do you ?

      • Leann

        It’s similar to the Christmas Ornament coming out for the winter collection.

      • Laura Summers

        So it’s a dangle then? 🙁

      • Leann

        Yes, it’s a dangle.

    The us is also doing a free leather promo at the end of the month.

    • Leann

      Yup, I’ve got a separate article about the promotions. This is just for breast cancer promos.

  • Lozzie

    I quite like the pink bracelet and charm. Will any of the sale proceeds go towards BCF here in Australia?

    • Leann

      I believe so :).

  • Lozzie

    I just bought the bracelet and charm and I love it. Its lovely and light and a percentage of the sales goes to an important cause so its a win all round.

    I;ve not had a leather bracelet before – is there a way to keep the charm/s in place?
