Eat fried chicken to cure breast cancer!

Wow.  This is wrong on so many different levels.  KFC is going pink this month for breast cancer awareness.  First of all, is going pink and promoting breast cancer awareness going to invade every month of the year?  But even more disturbing is Buckets For the Cure.  Money will be donated to Susan G. Komen For the Cure for every pink bucket of fried chicken purchased.  KFC is hoping to make the “largest donation ever in the fight against breast cancer.”

The Colonel says pink is the new red.  Is he trying to distract us from heart disease and obesity maybe?

    Seriously? So sad. Will Komen take money from anyone? I feel like this is completely and totally whorish. Such hypocrites. My hat is off to breast cancer organizations with ethics. Breast cancer organizations that THINK. My check book supports them too.

    Trouble is, such a small percent of each dollar goes to a breast cancer organization that in turn spends 12-30 percent on administration and fund raising. People THINK they are helping BC, when all that is happening is some business is taking advantage of a group of people to further their own ends, (PROFITS).

    The ‘Pink’ was an effective way to bring breast cancer to the fore-front, trouble is, it is abused and compromised by people with their own agendas. This has the effect of making breast cancer ‘Big Business’! There is nothing wrong with a business giving to breast cancer organizations, but it should be an addendum, not on the front page!

    God forbid if it is ever ‘cured’. Just imagine all the businesses that would have to think up real advertizing, not to mention pharmaceutical companies, equipment companies, researchers and more having to find some other cause
    .
    I, for one don’t even know if someone HAS found a cure and it was squashed because all of the billions of dollars that the pink campaign moves from hand to hand. Not to be a conspiracy theorist, but stranger things have happened.

    (And this does not even mention all those ‘Save the *immature name for breasts*’ organizations selling t-shirts and hats and sending as little as 5-25 percent to real breast cancer organizations! But do not get me started!
