Munchkin's Project Pink Campaign Supports Susan G. Komen for the Cure with its
Second Celebrity eBay Auction this October
WHAT: Emmy Award-winning journalist and TV personality Cristina
Saralegui joins celebrities in Munchkin's Project Pink Campaign.
Munchkin, Inc. -- maker of award-winning infant and toddler
products -- is once again reminding women everywhere "Don't Duck a
Breast Exam" with the return of its successful Project Pink breast
cancer awareness campaign. Munchkin has enlisted the support of a
diverse group of celebrities to sign and decorate Munchkin's
limited edition pink bath ducks scheduled for auction via eBay in
October. All auction proceeds will benefit Susan G. Komen for the
Cure. In 2006, Project Pink raised over $30,000 through the
combination of the celebrity duck eBay auction and sale of more
than 70,000 pink ducks to consumers nationwide.
Cristina's special duck creation goes on eBay week of October 1-8.
