Buy Certain M&M’s And Help Fight Breast CancerTruth!


Summary of eRumor:

This eRumor says that if you buy a bag of M&M’s new “pink and white” candy, you’ll be helping raise funds to help fight breast cancer.

The Truth:

This promotion was originally for September and October of 2003, according to the folks who make M&M’s, but was revived during September, October, and November of 2004.
That’s because October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
The proceeds went to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer foundation, which has partnered with other websites for raising funds through either the sale of product or clicking corporate banners on their sites.
