Pink Ribbon at Yahoo-Truth! but now Over!
Click the Pink Ribbon at Yahoo-Donate to Breast Cancer-Previously Truth! Now Ended!
Summary of eRumor:
This is a short email that simply encourages you to go to health.yahoo.com and click the pink ribbon to donate to breast cancer.
This was authentic, but is now over. Some emails said that clicking the ribbon would result in a contribution to "the breast center." In reality, the donations were going to the Susan G. Komen Foundation. It was established in 1982 by Nancy Brinker to honor the memory of her sister, Susan G. Komen, who died from breast cancer at the age of 36. The Komen Foundation is a national organization with a network of volunteers working through local chapters and Race for the Cure events in over 100 cities.
