Kohl’s Pink Elephant Necklace: The Elephant in the Room

Kohl’s Pink Elephant Necklace

I had my first mammogram at 31 to create a baseline for comparison against the one I would have when I turned 40. Just last month I visited the doctor again and was told this time to return due to an “area of concern.” Note to self – don’t open letters from a hospital on Saturday morning. I spent all weekend in a panic, only to find out on Monday that there was no mass or calcification, but rather some dense tissue they wanted to reexamine. It turns out younger women have denser breast tissue, though after that scare you can bet I’ll be getting my mammograms annually!

This is just the kind of awareness that Katie Holmes and Kohl’s are promoting with their new campaign. They’d like us all to acknowledge the pink elephant in the room – breast cancer. The duo hopes to create awareness for the disease and also raise money for the fight against it. Beginning today, 100% of the proceeds from the pink elephant necklaces will go to Kohl’s Cares. The Lauren Conrad-designed jewel will only be available for a limited time – get one for yourself and a few for girlfriends before they sell out! At Kohl’s in small ($5) and large ($8).

    I love the pink elephant necklace wondering if it is made with safe materials lead and nickel free?

  2. My sister in law passed away from breast cancer last May, her daughter is pregnant and I wanted to give her a pink elephant pendant so she has a piece of her mom at her baby shower. My mother in law loved elephants and I thought she could have a piece of both of them at her shower but I can’t find the pink elephant any where. Can you tell me where I might be able to obtain one?

  3. I WENT OVER AND OVER AND OVER TO KOHLS IN ARIZONA AND NOW IN IOWA AND HAVE NOT FOUND ONE AT KOHLS ALL I HEAR IS IT WAS FIRST IN MAY NOW JUNE JUST WHEN IS IT COMING HAD 3 AUNTS DIED OF CANCER AND WANT ONE THANKS

  4. I work at a Kohl’s in New Jersey, and we just got the pink elephants in again. If you don’t see them on the floor, ask the Jewelry Associate if they have them in. If they don’t, ask they if when they come in if they could put one aside and contact you.

    I went to 3 different Kohls and called more. I found out that each Kohls got about 10 necklaces in. And the people that work at the Kohls had saved them for friends and family. So I couldn’t get one at all. now it turns out that people on Ebay have lots of them…and are selling them for $30 a piece. I can’t understand how Kohls took something so important and A didn’t make enough of them and B let their employees sell them to people who were going to turn around and jack the price on Ebay. This saddens me to no end. They should really do something about this!
