Hope people don't mind me posting this but I just noticed it on my ISP homepage and thought it was a good idea as every little helps.

Nice idea - I like it when companies are willing to give to charity in return for me sharing my information.
In fact, I came across a site the other day, which pays you to receive information from sponsors/ advertisers based on information you give them about yourself - it pays you per e-mail you read/ action and also pays a charity at the same time!
Think it's a much better way than spending it all on TV advertising etc!
(Not all of it seems to be up and running yet, but can certainly register against your Health interests)

Ooh, love the Wear it Pink idea, Mother Nature, thanks.

Like you, beansmum, I have also sent the Olay link to friends.

Sorry to hear about your MIL, katzguk, my mum had a mastectomy a number of years ago and so I like to support breast cancer charities when possible.

As you say, Mo2, it is good when companies give something back to good causes, especially when you think of all they money they pour into (and at times 'waste') on advertising. Pity it wasn't more but at least it is something.
