October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer *UPDATE*


webkinz cheatsIt's unusual for us to find out about a new Pet of the Month so early, but October's pet is so special that it requires a special introduction.  For October 2010, the Pink Poodle is returning as Pet of the Month, but this time it is working for a cure for breast cancer.  
 
Ganz is partnering with Susan G. Komen for the Cure "to help promote awareness" by releasing the Pink Poodle in special packaging.  Players adopting a Pink Poodle during the month of October will receive a special Loot Bag and will have access to special POTM activities.
 
At this point it appears that these Pink Poodles will have the exact same POTM benefits as all other POTMs.  If more information is revealed about this program, we will bring it to you here.
 
UPDATE:  Thank you to Webkinz Insider member MamaDragon3 for tracking down more details about the release of this specially-packaged Pink Poodle.  MamaDragon3 contacted the Komen organization directly and received the following response:  "Ganz has graciously agreed to donate 5% of the suggested retail sales price to Komen with a minimum guaranteed donation of $100,000."

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Good idea!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Aw cool!
Thanks for the info, FIA!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Well that's a nice thought from Ganz, use Webkinz to promote awareness.

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Great job Ganz!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

WOW Great idea!!!!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

This is Wonderful news! Ganz and is a great medium to help get the word out. And Thanks to for making us aware of this fantastic opportunity.

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

They really do lRead our Suggestion letters ,Big hugssss!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Okay, here's some things I'm wondering.

One, I already have a pink poodle - I know I won't get a loot bag, but will I still be able to partcipate in the POTM activities or are they specific to this poodle?

Secondly, I didn't see where it said Ganz was donating any money to breast cancer research. Is this just for awareness or are they contributing a portion of sales? My grandmother died of breast cancer, my mother had a lump removed - this is my cause!! I always buy things that donate proceeds. But, there are a lot of companies that just make pink things and you think you're doing good, but they're pocketing all the money. What's Ganz doing?

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Wonderful idea Ganz!!!
Can't wait til Oct. to buy one!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

It's so Sad, Cancer seems to hit all of us.
I already have the pink poodle i am also going to get this one. I hope some funds will go to Breast Cancer.
My Husband and I spend alot of time and Energy with Gilda's [Radners] Club. 6yr GD Loves to come along.
I am Very Happy Ganz is making another Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer Awareness.

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Hope that Ganz is contributing a large portion of the POTM profits to the cure...Love that they are making an effort to bring these worthy causes to the minds of the world!! Thanks so much for the update!!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

I'm pretty certain the poodle itself is no different than the pink poodle you already have (I already have one too ) Just like for any other pet of the month, you will be able to participate in the POTM activities, but no special adoption loot bags unless you adopt a new one that month.

I also looked at the info provided in this thread, and it appears that the pet is specially packaged for the sake of promoting awareness, but nothing about monetary donations. But, awareness is good too cause it may inspire others to donate to the cause in the future. I guess its sort of like the idea of using blue Webkinz last month to promote autism awareness. Maybe we'll find out more later on.

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

wow that sounds wonderful, wonder if they get those special pets to Israel too, if so, it will be so great, will get one for sure if they do

Just looks like they are "promoting awareness" nowhere does it say proceeds will go to....


Neat Idea if it were a donation thing, and also would be nice if all the pink pets would be involved.

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

Oh my gosh, I LOVE this!!! Way to go, Ganz!!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer

I think that's great of them to help against cancer!

Re: October 2010 Pet of the Month Revealed: Pink Poodle for Breast Cancer
