Special Edition Mouse from Microsoft for Breast Cancer Awareness Month


Every 23 seconds, someone in the world is diagnosed with breast cancer. These are mothers, sisters, aunts, grandmothers and friends. If interested, you can also read this Breast Cancer Facts & Figures 2009-2010, from the American Cancer Society.

The Microsoft Hardware Team is doing what they can during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure to create a special edition pink mouse.

They’re donating 10% of the selling price to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest and most progressive grassroots network of survivors and activists fighting to end breast cancer forever.

From September 1, 2010 to September 11, 2011, Microsoft shall donate to Susan G. Komen for the Cure® $4 per product sold with a guaranteed minimum donation of $200,000.

You can buy this hardware here from Microsoft Store
