More pink ribbon crap

Unbelievable! I just got an email from Young Survival Coalition in which they provide good info about breast cancer but then proceed to hawk more pink ribbon crap. And they don't disclose how much money YSC gets from each purchase.

Do me a favor -- DON"T go to their boutique and shop. Feel free to make a donation, it's a worthy cause; but please don't participate in the "Pinktobering" of breast cancer.

YSC's Breast Cancer Awareness Month Boutique

We are pleased to announce the partnerships Young Survival Coalition has formed with numerous retailers in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month 2009. The support and generosity of our corporate partners will help raise vital awareness about young women and breast cancer as well as the much needed funding to ensure that young women affected by the disease can access the resources, programs and peer support they need.

We are grateful to our retail partners for sharing the same passion and dedication to our mission that the YSC Board, staff and thousands of volunteers do, and we hope you will show your support by doing your holiday shopping early.

Please visit our online Boutique for a complete listing of all the exciting products available this year as well as purchasing information.
