Think before you pink

Just because a company or organization slaps pink on something doesn't mean they are making a donation towards breast cancer.  Before you buy or donate, investigate to understand how much and where your money is going.  Is the product your buying something that could contribute to breast cancer?  Some companies might even being using the cause not to help breast cancer but to help themselves.

I gotta tell ya, I'm getting a little pink-ed out. I wish use of the color for the charity were more controlled, but I guess that is the risk you run when you identify a color with a cause. One cannot trademark a color. I wish they had just stuck with the pink ribbon symbol instead. Good heads up, thanks.
