m&ms against breast cancer
I got this email from my aunt today.  Usually she sends me "inspirational poems" and the occasional virus hoax, but this one is actually for real.

This starts September 1st 2004 - Nov. 2004 or until a cap of $50,000.00 is reached!  (The cap is actually $650,000.)

        New M&M colors

        Pass this on to all of your friends. There are many women out there who have breast cancer. Lets do all we can to support this cause.

        New Pink &White M&M's

        The maker of M&M candies has teamed up with the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation to raise funds through the sale of their
new "pink &white" M&M candies.

        For each 8-ounce bag of the special candies sold, the makers of M&M (Masterfoods) will donate 50 cents to the foundation. The next time you want a treat, please pick up a bag (now sold in stores nationwide) - you will be donating to a great cause and satisfying your sweet tooth.

        Please pass on to all your family and friends. -- Thank you.

Oh, always. I get too much junk mail from family members not to. :-)
