To the people that don’t think these “pink promotions” are doing any good for breast cancer: I agree with you that breast cancer is being employed as a cheap means of gaining sympathy and is used by most companies as nothing more than a marketing strategy for their other crap products (a lot like selling promotional items at a loss, except most places are actually making profits off of these “charity” promotions). I used to denounce these companies, too, but the reality is that most people have no interest/desire to care about breast cancer research unless they or someone close to them has suffered from it. I’d probably be guilty of the same thing… the only reason I even found this page is because I was searching for info about complications I had from a removal of a malignant node (and yes, men can have breast cancer, too - you can see for yourself what happened… bad breast reconstruction pics, but make sure you didn’t just eat). As shady as these companies are, with most giving maybe a penny to actual breast cancer research off of every pink nic nac they sell, the reality is that their “contribution,” as disingenuous as it is, is better than nothing at all. If it wasn’t for greedy, shady corporations trying to exploit ppl’s emotions, I don’t see any other way that we can raise awareness and garner support for this cause. And let’s face it, interest groups don’t work when the only money coming in is from the small group of ppl that are actually motivated enough to join. People just simply don’t care unless it’s affecting them directly…
