    I wish I could say I am shocked by this but this is despicable.

    those despicable bastards. dedicating a month to this turning everything pink helping raise awareness for this donating 3 million dollars likely getting an untold amount of donations from fans direct to the susan komen foundation and only giving 8% of proceeds to them for the pink merchandise. bastards
    :sarcasm:

    sure they could give a bigger percentage, but cmon you don't think any other retailer would take a percentage for something like this. they are getting this foundation tons of publicity and lots of money,

    if you gonna judge them ask yourself this,

    how much have you given

    Short Rant.

    Have said elsewhere I don't like pink with football. Public Service Announcements during October would be better and NFL charities could make donations. I am a female that had breast cancer 20 years ago. When I was working for Verizon they had employees collecting for Komen during October (I gave then) and all the money went to Komen.

    ps I also agree with others on this site that there are several other cancers that need this kind of attention
