October is breast cancer awareness month, and there will be many cases of fraudulent charities touting pink ribbons; caveat donator: donor, be advised.
"Pink-ribbon products are popping up all over — on grocer’s shelves, at bakeries, even on the feet of professional football players. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, when products often are marketed as having a tie-in to charities that help victims or support cancer research.
"Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises consumers to research charities and cause-related products carefully before making a donation or buying a pink-ribbon product."--Chris Thetford, the News Tribune
