Fort Wayne, Indiana You really can shop for a cure – generous shoppers donated more than $54,000 in Vera Bradley Stores at checkout during National Tickled Pink Day, Saturday, October 8. You can make donations at Vera Bradley Store cash registers year round, and when you make a donation of $25 or more, you’ll receive an exclusive Gift Box and Card.

More than $7,600 has been collected thus far from Retail Partners who hosted their own National Tickled Pink Days in stores as well. All funds will benefit the Foundation and breast cancer research.

And, for a limited time, the cute new Hope Watch in new breast cancer awareness pattern Tea Garden is also available in stores – 100% of sale proceeds from the watch will benefit the Foundation. (Check your favorite retailer for availability.)

See what shoppers are saying about the Hope Watch:
"Ever since I've seen this watch I have been dying to buy it. Well, today I did & I absolutely adore it! I think I might buy it for every girl in our family as Christmas presents! It's cute, stylish, & the proceeds go to a very important cause. How can you go wrong?"

"Just bought this watch and I absolutely love it. The colors are perfect and I think the pink band is the perfect shade of pink. It’s an added bonus that proceeds go to charity. Thank you for thinking of all the women out there that need your support. Buying this watch just makes me feel good!"
