Linky Love: great BCA posts

Breast Cancer Awareness gets an unbelievable amount of publicity in October.  Supermarket shelves are overflowing with pink products, Facebook and Twitter are awash with pink memes and updates, and the blogosphere is full of pink posts (including my own!).  With so many bloggers dedicated to the cause, which posts are worth reading?  Here are 7 that I found which offer useful advice and concrete ways to help the cause:

From Toddler Planet: In the name of awareness
From Toddler Planet: Turning awareness to action
From Cool Mom Picks: 7 Smart Tips for Supporting Breast Cancer Awareness Month the Right Way
From SkinnyScoop: The Best Breast Cancer Non-Profits
From Where the Money Goes: A Breast Cancer Donation Guide
From Think Before You Pink: Critical Questions to Ask Before You Buy Pink
From ecouterre: 10 Ridiculous Pinkwashed Products That May Actually Cause Breast Cancer

Okay, that last link on my list is probably more sensationalist -- at least the title is.  But it's definitely an article that reminds us to think carefully before we jump on the pinkwashing bandwagon.  That's the key word -- Think.  Oh, and Act.
