One last thing; I HATE those "save the tatas" bumper stickers (which are not in any way affiliated with Komen, FYI), because curing breast cancer isn't about saving breasts, it's about saving people from dying.

I know that and you know that and everyone HERE knows that...But you have to market it to AmericaTM, which has been conditioned to not care when people die, just when things THEY like go away.

Good point. A very good friend of mine had breast cancer and recovered. She's very knowledgeable about anatomy & physiology (she was one of my teachers at school) and very outspoken. One day, she told me & Mrs Mang' about it and her experience and then said something to the effect of "This is not a popular thing to say but, as crappy as breast cancer is.....there are a hell of a lot of other diseases that are much worse that no one is talking about because they don't have the marketing money behind them."

And while she's very grateful for getting treated and surviving (as well as raising money for cancer charities), she recognizes that we turn diseases into commodities. More slogans to stick on cars so we can promptly ignore the issues they represent. (cf: save our troops ribbons).

But there's no choice:  We HAVE to make them into commidities, because that's the only way to fund research, because the government sure the fuck isn't going to do it.  They have to give each other tax breaks and fund that new aircraft carrier.

True. I think she understands that which is why it's frustrating. What's also frustrating is that the Komen people in CT pulled a dumb move which made it harder to raise money for them.

My friend is a physical therapist and for many years she'd always volunteered to do pre/post event massage for people running in 'Race For The Cure' events. One year, she is all set to volunteer and the Komen charity turn around and say "We're now only accepting massage therapists who work for the Massage Envy chain." Corporate bullshit 101 - you can't volunteer to help a charity unless you're an employee of this franchise.

No, the fact that they decided that they only wanted massage/physical therapists from their corporate 'friends' at race events. Seems that being a licensed professional willing to donate time wasn't good enough for them. 'Massage Envy' being a chain then gets all the visibility of 'look at all our employees in uniform helping the poor ladies with cancer'.

They're just full of good decisions.

A organizations go, they're kind of a shitty one, unfortunately. Chock full O'bullshit. However, at least they have been generally pretty helpful at raising people's general awareness of breast cancer as an issue.

Yeah, well, take what you can get, and try for better results in the future, etc, etc.

Any help is better than no help.

This is true, and also organizations, like people, often learn from their mistakes and go on to do better in the future.

A lot of people think products with the pink logo are donating a percentage of profit from each unit sold, in Aus. That's not the case. The company pays a certain amount of money to use the logo for a period of time.

Seems what's happened here is the company has used the logo etc and THEN turned to the organisation and said, congratulations, you've given us the right to use your logo, here's the right amount of money.
Haven't paid rent since 2014 with ONE WEIRD TRICK.
