Pink Out Purdue

you're on campus today, perhaps your building is saturated with little pink business cards for the following cause:

I suppose this is an interesting idea, but I don't recall how popular it was for the Penn State game last year.  Just can't see it happening enough to make an impact.  

Welcome to the website for Pink Out Purdue! As many of you may know, last year students at The Ohio State University sold pink t-shirts for the Penn State game! These pink t-shirts benefit both the Susan G Komen and Stephanie Spielman Foundations. Ready for round 2? On October 20, 2012, we ask that you, "Let your pink POP!" Wear anything pink you can find! Decorate your clothes, cars, friends, family, and even pets!

What do you think?  Is the weight of the Spielman foundation enough to push this forward?  Personally, I feel like you'd get more bang for your buck to donate the money directly to cancer research and forgo the pink trinket.  I understand the arguement for raising awareness, but I also feel like we've put a big spotlight on breast cancer research, while other types of cancer don't merit ribbons.
