"We want to apologize to the American public for recent decisions that cast doubt upon our commitment to our mission of saving women's lives," read a prepared statement from Susan G. Komen Board of Directors and Founder and CEO, Nancy G. Brinker.

You should check out the links that libraone posted on the other thread. I'll avoid Komen until there's a change in leadership.

I agree, it comes with straings attached. What gets me is they (SGK) gave 2.5 million to Penn State & their under crimanial investagation. So it was all political just plain & simple

Saw those in the other thread. I won't be donating to them ... ever. If they are bought by the politicos, they will flap in the wind, depending on whose pressuring them and what the threats of monetary loss are. Not worthy of my respect, much less my $$$.
