Throughout the US, people are dusting off their pink ribbons, and companies are breaking out their finest pink products, the proceeds from which will be donated to breast cancer research and patient support. is no exception – we’re ready to fight with the Power of Pink!

We’ve pulled together a lineup of the rosiest gadget accessories we could find, and put them all together on one page. The plan is simple – for each and every one of these pink products purchased between now and October 31st, 2010, we’ll donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the non-profit global leader in heightening breast cancer awareness and prevention, supporting breast cancer research, and helping to ensure quality care for breast cancer patients everywhere.

This is a win-win situation for everyone involved: you can treat yourself or stock up on affordable gifts for the tech-loving girly-girls in your life (the holidays are coming fast), and also know that you’re both helping people who really need it, and working to fight a rampant disease that’s impacted more or less each and every one of us in ways both profound and small. So everyone stick together, think pink, and let’s do this.
