Buy Certain M&M's And Help Fight Breast Cancer-Truth!

 

 

 

bulletSummary of the eRumor
This eRumor says that if you buy a bag of M&M's new "pink and white" candy, you'll be helping raise funds to help fight breast cancer.
bulletThe Truth
This promotion was originally for September and October of 2003, according to the folks who make M&M's, but was revived during September, October, and November of 2004.
That's because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation, which has partnered with other websites for raising funds through either the sale of product or clicking corporate banners on their sites.
