You can't miss all the "think pink" merchandise now for sale, what with this being National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It's a personal issue for some -- like breast cancer survivor Christina Applegate, who designed a special line of stationery for Tiny Prints.
For others, it's local. With breast cancer rates so high on Long Island, Hauppauge-based ClearVision Optical partnered with BCBGMaxAzria, creating special sunglasses to raise money to combat the disease.
Brands have offered up shoes, tees, jewelry, even lip tattoos, donating a portion of proceeds to breast-cancer-related charities this month. Here's a selection, available locally and online. And whaddya know? It's not all pink.
