It's the 10th anniversary of Ralph Lauren's Pink Pony campaign to raise awareness and funds in support of the fight against cancer. It's a global initiative - and one I can very proudly say I'm glad to be apart of, along with 99 other amazing bloggers across the country. Ralph Lauren sent us this super-cute Pink Pony Polo (retail=$125) to model in support of the campaign (view all 100 bloggers on AOL's Stylelist blog here!) - and don't you love it? It's Ralph Lauren's own little version of the pink ribbon, and a portion of all proceeds benefit cancer funding and research (that's the coolest part). I just love the slim fit!
So how can YOU get involved?
There's an online auction site (through Oct. 21) for Pink Pony in conjunction with charitybuzz (a luxury charity site) where you can bid on everything from a front row seat at RL's next fashion show, a Taylor Swift autographed guitar or even a chance to meet Lance Armstrong! 100-percent of proceeds from the auction - yes, 100! - will benefit the Pink Pony Fund.
“I am so proud of the work Pink Pony has accomplished over the last 10 years,” said Ralph Lauren. “We are committed to the global fight against cancer and will continue to help change the lives of so many affected families.”

The mission of Pink Pony is distinct and unique in that RL addresses the needs of the medically underserved, bringing quality cancer care, access to cancer care, and early detection for those who need it most. My mom was diagnosed with cancer some eight years ago, and I can't thank you enough for your donations. Thanks for helping make a difference today - for tomorrow! - xoxo
