October, in the US, is a Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the color pink is shown to support those who're fighting to find a cure for this disease. Elizabeth Hurley gave many young girls a run for their money when she arrived at the Estee Lauder Breast Cancer awareness event wearing a skin-tight off-the-shoulder pink dress and gold platform heels. NFL players show their support by adding a little pink to their uniform, as you may have seen this past weekend.
Microsoft Hardware blog, posted about a mouse which, when purchased, $4 of the cost will go towards the Komen for the Cure charity. Mircosoft's pink mouse encourages people to support and donate.
The mouse Microsoft has given a makeover to is the Wireless Mobile Mouse 4000, which costs just $39.95, with four of those dollars going to the fund. Microsoft's also set on making a great impact with this by stating these rules for their donations:
From Sept'1, 2010 to Sep'11, 2011, Microsoft shall donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure $4 per product sold with a guaranteed minimum donation of $200,000.
