decide the exact percentage of the total donation each charity would
receive.

Due to the success of the 2009 program, the company is re-launching
the campaign for 2010. The tally will start again at zero and
consumers can vote for one of these charities: the Young Survival
Coalition dedicated to make sure no young women diagnosed with breast
cancer is left to fight alone; the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center; and the Making Memories Breast Cancer Foundation, which
creates memory-making events for patients while increasing awareness
of the disease.
