Now we know that players adopting Pink Poodles that have "Komen for the Cure" tags will receive a special gift. After the pet has been adopted, a "CD Cover" will appear in the player's dock. When that item is dragged out of the dock, the MP3 download will be triggered. What a great way to support Breast Cancer Research!

October will soon be here, and that means Breast Cancer Awareness, and many campaigns to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research and a search for a cure for this disease. Ganz takes an active part in the fund-raising for this cause.
During the month of October, when you purchase a Webkinz Pink Poodle with the special Komen Cure tag, Ganz will donate a minimum of $2 to help support the Susan G. Komen Cure Foundation (in the US). In Canada, specially tagged Webkinz Pink Poodles will be available through the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation at various fund-raising events.
On adopting a Pink Poodle with the special tag, you will have the option of downloading the new version of the song "I Dream in Pink", by the well-known artist Nikki Yanofsky, for free. Nikki Yanofsky is the teen jazz-pop artist who performed the song "I Believe" at the 2010 Winter Olympics. She is the first celebrity to record a song from Webkinz World! You can also purchase this song from Apple's iTunes, on the Webkinz iTunes page.
