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”).

  2. Thank you for your participation. Cancer’s a big deal in our family. So, these types of fundraisers are important to us. The money you raise could even save my life or my daughter’s life one day.

    If there’s anything I can do to help…

  3. Wtg Chris! It is nice to see the geek community coming together to help with a cause.

    I find it equally awesome that large chains are participating in the event.
