‘My Mother has been Diagnosed with Breast Cancer’
For those of you who has a mother who has or survived breast cancer, sharing this personal information and your support of Pink Friday can make a lasting impression. Copy and paste the letter below, then personalize with you own touch – and send off to your family and friends.
Subject: Pink Friday – Shopping for a Cure
You know what I’ve been seeing a lot lately? Those pink-ribbon stickers on cars, with the word “Survivor” on the ribbon.
And I’ve seen far too many of them. My neighbors, my friends have all been affected by breast cancer. Ask any woman you meet if she knows anyone who’s had breast cancer and she’ll give you a list.
And now it’s my turn. My mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer. I’ll spare you the details of her illness, but I will say that I wish there was a cure. So I’m encouraged that TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA is supporting Susan G. Komen for the cure. In fact, they’re extending it through the end of the year. Instead of just a month of awareness, now there’s three.
TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA are changing “Black Friday” (retailers call the shopping day after Thanksgiving Black Friday) to “Pink Friday.” By shopping Tigerdirect.com or CompUSA.com from November 28th through December 31st, a portion of all proceeds will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the cure. And TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA will be donating a minimum of $100,000 to the foundation. In addition, you will be able to make your own personal donation upon check out.
So this year, instead of just shopping, shop for a good cause…
We’re shooting for a quarter-million dollars in donations. With your help we’ll get there—and that means we can help save lives and end breast cancer forever.
I’d appreciate your help. And if you would, please forward this message to someone who you love.
You help is appreciated beyond words. Have a happy holiday. You can learn more here: http://www.pinkfriday.org
’40,000 Women Will Die this Year – Please Help’
Annually, breast cancer will result in 40,000 deaths this year – and until we find a cure, they cannot be stopped. Forward this message to those on your email list and ask them to help make a difference.
Subject: 40 Thousand women will die this year – can you help?
This year, more than 40,000 women die from breast cancer.
But YOU can make a difference. I will be! I just visited PinkFriday.org and learned all about TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA’s efforts from 11/28/08 through the end of the year to donate a minimum of $100,000 to Susan G. Komen for the cure in their efforts to eliminate breast cancer. Shoppers will be able to make contributions with any order, plus during the 18 hour live broadcast on 11/28/07 (“Pink Friday”), TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA will offer up great products with values of up to $1200 for donations equal to 50% of the items’ price. So far, over $100,000 in products have been donated for this Charity Auction – but you can only get these great deals if you tune in between 8AM and 5PM EST on Friday, November 28, 2007.
All of us, united together, can make a difference in the lives of women and families facing breast cancer. You can learn more here: http://www.pinkfriday.org
You help is appreciated beyond words. Have a happy holiday.
‘My Mother is a Breast Cancer Survivor’
Many individuals have a mother or other relative who has survived breast cancer – and it has touched more lives than you realize. Your friends are probably already aware, but let them know that this year – doing things they intend to do anyway – can help save someone else’s relative from succumbing to this horrible disease.
Subject: Breast Cancer has Touched my Life – and You Can make a difference
As the holiday season approaches, it’s time to count our blessings. And one of those blessings is that my mother survived breast cancer – a terrible disease that affects thousands and thousands of women across the world – and a cure is still not within our reach.
You have probably already started to hunt down the “Black Friday” deals that are starting to hit the newspapers and internet – but the day after Thanksgiving is much more to me this year.
TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA are turning Black Friday into “Pink Friday” this year – and they has made a commitment to donate a minimum of $100,000 to Susan G. Komen for the cure – an organization formed by a woman who made a promise to her dying sister to try to help others survive breast cancer. On Pink Friday, TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA will have a 9 hour live broadcast starting at 8AM through 5PM EST offering up the best deals – but it’s much more.
Through the end of 2008, TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA will ship their orders in pink boxes, stuff them with pink packing peanuts, have a pink packing slip – and even more – our catalog, website and newspaper inserts are also turning pink – all in support of breast cancer. During the live broadcast, over $100,000 of products will be offered in limited quantities to individuals who make a donation equal to 50% of the ‘regular price’ of these items. Items like HDTVs, laptops and more. You can literally save over $500 on some of these products.
TigerDirect and the All-New CompUSA will continue these efforts through the end of the year – and you are going to be shopping anyway – so why not shop to make a difference?
Tune in to ComputerTV on 11/28/08 and help make a difference by doing something you are already going to do anyway – and save a bundle.
