Pink Friday

Two companies are turning “Black Friday” Pink. CompUSA and TigerDirect are doing an event this Friday, Nov. 28 to brand the day as “Pink Friday” for the second year in a row. They expect to raise more than $250,000 from a portion of total sales and from customer donations to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the world’s largest breast cancer organization. They are partnering with Ustream to deliver a live stream of the event. They will have the live stream on all the TVs in their stores, as well as on CompUSA and TigerDirect’s website, as well as on Ustream.

CompUSA and TigerDirect wanted to see if I would be interested in recording a quick video clip to say hi, put in a few words about the cause, and acknowledge the efforts to raise money for breast
cancer / Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I might even participate live on Friday, too.

The good news? CompUSA and TigerDirect are willing to make contributions to Susan G. Komen in our names for $5,000 since I’m participating (our names = those of you who subscribe to my RSS feed, podcast, YouTube channel, Twitter posts, etc.). So, thanks guys… for helping make this happen (as opposed to the way I said it in the video, as “help making this happen”).
