I thought that when I went into Bed Bath and Beyond and saw Kitchenaid blenders in Breast Cancer Awareness colors. For some reason, it struck me as awfully tacky, no matter how noble the underlying cause.

Did you read about Bono and Bobby Shriver's ( RED campaign?

They call it "punk capitalism". And it might be tacky, but if it increases awareness, and more importantly much needed fundage, is it really so bad? If good results, big good, I'm not so sure I care about the original motive.

Eww! That faux picture of Angelina is spooky!!
As for the donation, even if giving is done for publicity (and it may not be), at least it helps a good cause and may inspire others to do so too.
