IF YOU BUY PINK
If you buy pink-ribbon products, check the packaging to learn about fundraising arrangements.
How much money from your purchase goes toward breast cancer causes? A specific amount should be posted on the package.
If the product advertising says "proceeds'' -- in general -- will be donated to breast cancer, beware. Anyone can put a pink ribbon on a product and sell it, regardless of whether it benefits breast cancer causes.
