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

October is my daughters birth month so I will get one if I can find one for her birthday. It is never too early to raise awareness of breast cancer. Her grandmother is a survivor of breast cancer and even if there is not a donation per se it still will probably create questions that will help to save heartache and lives

Since they are partnering with the foundation I'm sure they are donating something to them And even if it's nothing more than awareness It's still good PR for BOTH of them!

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.
I know in the past Ganz has donated $1,000,000 to child focused charities through the Caring Valley program. And their Webkinz Foundation is a program that was created in late 2007 as a means for Ganz to develop programs and donate funds to programs that benefit children.

Kudos Ganz.
I hope there are enough of the specially marked potm for the people who will be adopting them. This will definately bring in new people to webkinz. I know many people affected by "pink" cancer. My mother is a survivor.

wouldn't it be adorable if the potm poodle came with a pink ribbon t shirt or cap? Then your other pets could wear it to the park or clubhouse to continue the pink awareness campaign!

My child would play on her webkinz account when she couldn't leave her room. Gold is the color for this month. You would be amazed to see how many kids play webkinz in the hospital.
That would be a wonderful idea. There would be many gold toned pets to choose from, my fave choice would be a golden retriever. I hope Ganz reads this and does something, not only to raise awareness, but also donate some of the proceedings to childrens cancer foundations. God bless all those innocent children having to deal with such a horrible disease, my heart goes out to you. Go for gold Ganz!!!!!

I already own a pink poodle, but I will definitely be getting another in support of such a worthy cause.
