M&M's And Help Fight Breast Cancer-Truth!
Summary 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.
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.
