[IC] GMK Pretty in Pink (for Breast Cancer Awareness Month)
« on: Wed, 04 September 2019, 20:26:55 »
Hello everyone -- Upas from CannonKeys here.
As you may know, October is fast approaching, and it just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

A few months ago, I talked to some other vendors about this idea, and we all agreed we wanted to do something to support Breast Cancer awareness in October. GMK Pretty in Pink is the result of that decision.



GMK Pretty in Pink is a mod extension kit, featuring an accent spacebar, enter, arrows, and a few novelty keys. The novelties are meant to raise awareness of the dangers of breast cancer, and to show support for those who are currently fighting breast cancer and for survivors. The novelties feature the ubiquitous pink ribbon, a HOPE enter key, and a four heart flower.

The four hearts that make the flower is a popular tattoo for those who undergo a bi-lateral mastectomy. They get them as their “nipples” after the procedure. OCM thought it would be a great nod to those in the know of the community of survivors and also look great as a novelty

Speaking of the dangers of breast cancer, breast cancer is one of the most common kinds of cancer in women after skin cancer. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point.
The good news is that most women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early.

If you are a woman age 40 to 49, talk with your doctor about when to start getting mammograms and how often to get them.
If you are a woman age 50 to 74, be sure to get a mammogram every 2 years. You may also choose to get them more often.
Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member of yours had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms.




Every vendor who is running this set has agreed to donate ALL profits from the set to charity.
We will be donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. They have an A+ rating from both CharityWatch and Charity Navigator, and are the largest private funder of breast cancer research worldwide.

The following vendors have confirmed that they will stock this kit:
DixieMech - $45 USD
MyKeyboard.eu - 40 Euros
Daily Clack - $73 AUD
iLumkb - 66 SGD
CannonKeys - $45 USD
NovelKeys - $45 USD
zFrontier - 335 RMB

The kit will run from October 1st to October 31st across all vendors. We will have a price for this kit shortly.

In addition to these vendors I'd like to thank the following people for providing support for this project.
Each of these people did work for this set without asking for any compensation, and the project would not have been possible without their help:

Walker & Langelandia - Initial idea and brainstormers for this kit
OneCreativeMind - Designed the novelties for the kit
Abec13 - Provided renders

I support this  :thumb:
Once a set shines, it is truly yours. It is then your job to nurture it and care for it.
Love it until it blossoms into the beautiful fully and evenly shined set it has always wanted to be since it saw a shined set on Instagram under the hashtag #perfection.
Support it and maintain it until it will grow into itself and become one with itself. Then you can truly enjoy the typing experience
Sincerely,
       Hineybush

Like it.

At one time, Susan G Komen got litigious about others using the ribbon. was a decade ago or so. I don't know what they're like now. I don't think BCRF (who has a ribbon in their logo) would care but I'm not the most knowledgeable.

I am so glad you're donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and not Komen. Breast cancer runs in my family, and you know how I feel about pink, I'm all over this.
