Thank You – Pink Wink – Breast Cancer Charities of America

Thank you to all of you who purchased Wink in September and October.  Amalie is proud to work with the Breast Cancer Charities of America and the Feeling Beautiful Again program for the fifth year. Your support in our PINK WINK buy one give one program allows us to donate more each year.

                                                                       What your purchase means

Your purchase helps women fighting breast cancer get back to Feeling Beautiful Again.

After losing a breast to cancer or your hair during treatments, countless women have shared that the whole experience is equivalent to losing your femininity and sexuality all at once. Accepting a post-cancer body is often very difficult and can leave many patients with body image issues and low self-esteem. But simple acts of care and kindness can help.  This is the focus of the Feeling Beautiful Again Program.

                                                                  WINK Provides a Natural Solution

      When your hair follicle isn’t growing, it’s either resting or dead. If it’s dead, there’s no bringing it back. If it’s resting, we have the chance to stimulate the follicle back into the growth phase. Research shows that it all starts with essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids have been found to increase prostaglandin/prostaglanoid production thus stimulating eyelashes and eyebrows to enter and prolong the growth stage. This means, if you supplement your eyelash and eyebrow follicles with essential fatty acids you may be stimulating prostaglandin production naturally, which will result in longer lashes as well as fuller brows. No chemicals, no irritation, no concern with eye color change or other side effect – just longer, thicker lashes and brows!

                                                                                A Beauty Bag of Hope

Wink is proud to be included in the care package of hope. It Includes  items that make women smile and feel like a true woman again. Think of how a simple touch of lip gloss can make you feel pretty, or how blush can help brighten the complexion of a cancer patient. These items and others, are included within the beauty bags and are distributed to our hospital partners nationwide.

  • Cosmetics
  • Lotion
  • Nail Polish
  • Socks
  • Educational Material


                                                                                       Want to do More?

You can get involved by hosting a beauty drive or donating new/unopened beauty products! You, your family, friends, and colleagues can host a drive to collect items that breast cancer patients need most. Then we will assemble it and send them out nationwide to a woman in need.

We look forward to next year.
