Those who love to shop can do so this week and in the month of October without feeling guilty.

That’s because some retailers at Santa Monica Place will be offering various promotions and giveaways with some proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Susan G. Komen for the Cure.

Bloomingdale’s cardholders are invited to join the fight during Breast Cancer Awareness Month (October) by opting to “Give Pink Get More,” a $15 donation on their Insider card that goes to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. As an incentive to join, from Sept. 28 through Oct. 31 all customers who pay the enrollment fee and spend a minimum of $250 on their card will earn a $25 gift card.

Bloomingdale’s will also offer many exclusive items with a designated portion of sales benefiting breast cancer research. This includes Bloomingdale’s merchandise as well as items from designers such as Movado, Links of London, Paige Premium Denim, True Religion and Cuisinart. When customers purchase The Pink Gift Card, 10 percent of the card’s value is donated to the foundation and when redeemed, 10 percent of any spending exceeding the card’s value is also donated.

Customers can also purchase the Little Pink Bag, a reusable tote inspired by Bloomingdale’s Little Brown Bag for $20 with $2 going to the foundation through Oct. 31. Additionally, a pink umbrella is available for $12 with $6 going to the foundation. The Little Pink tote and umbrella are available both in-store and online.

Visit Nordstrom from Oct. 20 through Oct. 22 and receive a tote with the purchase of $50 or more on lingerie. For every bra purchased from a participating brand at the event, $2 will be donated to the Komen foundation.
