October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to mark the occasion, Munchkin Inc – designer and manufacturer of infant and toddler products – has announced it will auction celebrity-decorated pink bath duckies on eBay as part of its 3rd Annual Project Pink campaign.
Celebrities such as as Julianne Moore, Courteney Cox and David Arquette, Cindy Crawford, Tori Spelling, Bob Saget, Steven Weber, Jaclyn Smith, Sela Ward, Marissa Jaret Winokur and many more have donated hand-decorated and autographed limited edition pink ducks to the auction, which can be accessed through eBay. Each celebrity duck will be auctioned for a one-week period in the month of October and all auction proceeds will go to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“I love Munchkin’s Project Pink,” said Winokur. “These really cute pink bath duckies will help remind women to schedule routine breast exams, while also raising money to support research for a cure. And that’s something to quack about!”
In addition to the auction of celebrity-decorated ducks, consumers are also encouraged to purchase their own limited edition Project Pink Bath Duck via the Project Pink website or at select retailers nationwide for $2.99. One hundred percent of the net profits from the sale of these ducks will be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
“At Munchkin, we make products that help moms get through their busy days. With Project Pink, Munchkin is doing a little thing to remind moms that taking care of themselves is an important part of their day. We appreciate the support we’ve received from all participating celebrities in getting that message out,” says Doug Gillespie, vice president of marketing. “We encourage you to bid on your favorite duck or simply remind a friend ’Don’t Duck a Breast Exam’ and the importance of routine check-ups.”
