Not only does Ford donate $20 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure when you test-drive one of their vehicles from now until Dec. 31, but the car company also sells cute apparel and accessories, with 100 percent of the net proceeds going to to the organization. The Warriors in Pink line includes non-cheesy T-shirts, bright flip-flops, an umbrella with a patterned underside, a Martha Stewart-approved stamping kit, and more. We’re especially fond of the beautiful Warrior Woven Scarf, which we can wear all year long in support of finding a cure for breast cancer. [$38, Warriors in Pink]

The best commenter for this coming week — from today, Friday, Oct. 16 through Thursday, Oct. 22 — will be awarded with the Warriors in Pink basket. So, be as clever, smart, and original as you can!
