The House of G fights The Big C

Our fave New Zealand 'High St' store Glassons (aka The House of G, aka Comme des Glaz) has done it again. For the past 8 years for the Breast Cancer Awareness month of October, Glassons have released a line of designer Tees with $10 from each Tee sold donated to Breast Cancer Foundation. Breast Cancer is the most common cancer among New Zealand women. 1 in 9 women in NZ will be diagnosed with breast cancer during their lifetime, with more than 2,500 new cases expected this year. 90-95% of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer have no family history of the disease. The statistics are terrifying. Glassons’ partnership with the Breast Cancer Research Trust has raised over NZD$3.5 million since the initiative began. This funding has aiding some of the world’s most important research findings about breast cancer to date, including Auckland University's research to determine exactly what genes are involved in the development of breast cancer. 
With fab New Zealand designers such as Ruby, Karen Walker, Twenty Seven Names, Cybele, Huffer and Zambezi participating, these Tees are a steal at $NZ29.99! I saw the window (above) unveiled in Newmarket on my way to work this morning, & was tres excited upon subsequently ready Hannah McArdles' Blog post about the launch breakfast this morning. This year not only are there Tees, but a whole plethora of fabulous goodies in Glassons' 'Cure Shop' including sexy black candles by Zambesi, hot pink Phone Clutches, Karen Walker inflatable Heart Chairs & cute heart cosmetics bags by Ruby.
 Having alerted my Melbourne based sister BananaMeet-cute has blogged about her Twenty Seven Names sunglasses purchase!
I have nabbed a Zambesi candle and super cute pink star Ruby mug.
 
 
I will be purchasing these beauties next:

Breast Cancer Research Trust's goal is to find a Cure for breast cancer in the next ten years. All donations help, so all of you Kiwis, get along there now - stocks will not last! And Aussies, you can  buy online - free shipping to Oz! Shop here.
