I like this shirt, it’s very cute.

I think this is a ploy to get women to buy from certain designers and brands. Check out the most recent TIME magazine – breast cancer researchers hardly see a dime of the money we so quickly through out for a “pink ribbon item.” Money is better spent simply donating to the cause than having 20 cents given to some obscure company out of the $25 you spend on a shirt you might wear once, in October.

Think I’ll go buy a blue shirt I like somewhere else that I can afford and send a nice donation to cancer research so that they get the complete amount.

Some of those “donations” from purchase aren’t as much as you think…only $100 from a watch that is costing nearly $400? I don’t think so…Timex is still cheap, reliable and the rest can be sent to cancer research (or any other charity to whom you wish to donate).

the shirt pictured and the other products are great: they are cute, relatively inexpensive, and go to charity. good job!

I think these negative comments are uncalled for. I guess you have never lost a loved one to breast cancer. Did you not read the fact that $31.00 of the $35.00 charge for the shirts go to the breast cancer society??? I only hope you are never stricken by this horrible disease. I am proudly wearing my shirt. I will do anything I can to help make women more aware of the fact that we are all candidates for breast cancer.

Please get your facts straight before posting a comment. Visit http://www.bcrfcure.com and get informed. I personally raised $1800 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and I KNOW that 100% of that money is going to finding a cure. Have you made a donation? Wearing the T-shirts and pink ribbons raises awareness…
