The Canadian Tuxedo Becomes Fashionable for CURE!

For all you denim lovers out there, you now have a new reason to break out your jean jackets, skinny jeans, high-waisted flares and blouses, because National Denim Day is on its way. If you need some inspiration, check out Ralph Lauren's Spring 2010 show.

Since May 1997 every Monday after Mother's Day has been National Denim Day, CURE Foundation's main fundraiser to provide funding for basic and clinical research for breast cancer. On this national day, workplaces and organizations are encouraged to wear denim or a pink flower ribbon for the day in exchange for a $5 donation to the CURE Foundation. All the money that you donate to the CURE Foundation will help support laboratories, researchers and other equipment that will go to help teach hospitals how to improve the outcome of breast cancer for those affected by the disease. You can also make a contribution to the foundation by purchasing some of their jewellery items, including an interlocking silver bangle bracelet or a pink CURE ring.

This year National Denim Day falls on May 10th, so get together with your office and don some denim! If you do not work in an office, wear denim anyways and show your support for the CURE Foundation. For more information on how to donate and get involved, click here!
