When you choose to purchase a product with a pink ribbon on it, do you think you are helping to fund cancer research? After reading this blog post at www.cancerinmythirties.wordpress.com I was shocked to find out that many companies are cashing in on the pink ribbon campaign. Some companies market their products with a pink ribbon on the package/product misleading consumers into thinking that they are helping to support the cause. Many of these businesses do not donate anything or very little. I think it's disgusting. If you would like to donate to cancer research please do your homework and make sure that it gets into the right hands. Don't support companies who cash in on this horrific disease!!
