Through March 31, Bright Pink is partnering with five local Whole Foods Market stores to help promote being proactive about your health. The Chicago-based nonprofit — which works to prevent breast and ovarian cancer in young women through early detection — will stick its seal of approval on the shop’s healthiest items and host events at each store designed to inspire shoppers to make positive, cancer-preventing lifestyle choices. Bring your own shopping bag along and Whole Foods will donate 10 cents of your purchase to Bright Pink. For more information, visit Facebook.com/brightpink.
