Click the pink ribbon at Cigna to fight breast cancer-Was Truth!, Now Ended.

Click the Pink Ribbon On The Cigna Website and Money Will Be Donated for The Fight Against Breast CancerTruth! But Now Ended!

Summary of eRumor:

A short email says to go to the website of the Cigna Foundation and click the pink ribbon and Cigna will donate $1 to battle breast cancer.  The message says it’s during the month of October only.

The Truth:

This was true, but the campaign was in 2001.  

Cigna consists of several companies that offer group insurance and financial services.  Their Cigna Foundation donated $1 per click during October of 2001 to support the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Many companies donate to charity in response to visits to web sites.  It’s partly a way for them to participate in worthy causes and partly a way for them to attract fresh visitors to their sites.
