Goodbye purple, hello pink!

30 Sep




goodbye September

sugar with a purpose


Breast Cancer Awareness Month officially starts tomorrow, October 1.   This means that World Alzheimer’s month (September) is coming to an end.  Goodbye to the purple sprinkle donuts I would see at my local Dunkin Donuts.

According to the Alzheimer’s  website: “At least 32% of the purchase price from a single or  dozen Purple With A Purpose donuts will be donated to The DDBRCF to benefit the  Alzheimer’s Association.”  I saw that DDBRCF stands for Dunkin Donut Baskin-Robbins Community Foundation. I had no idea that the donut and ice cream folks were married!  Who knew? I hope they have a good dental plan there!

Here are some Pink Promotions I found in my local Bed, Bath and Beyond:

This bottom photo is of the back of a Pink Piggy calendar. Nothing says Breast Cancer Awareness to me more than a pink piggy calendar.  Oy.  Sales of this pink schlock will go toward the $30,000 donation the printer makes to Susan G Komen for the Cure.

I found an additional pink display of quilts, with proceeds going to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

Morgan Home, the manufacturer of these quilts, is giving $1.00 per quilt – with a maximum of $10,000 to the BCRF.


I commend both of these manufacturers for indicating exactly how much they will be donating to their chosen breast cancer charity.  I would still love to know if the cost of the pink packaging was more than the actual donation.

Things that make you go Hmmm.
