October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and many national and local businesses are marketing pink ribbon products and services to support a cure for breast cancer.
    The Better Business Bureau advises those consumers considering supporting the cause to research donation claims before making a purchase.
    “The ultimate goal is for a significant portion or all of the purchases to end up in the intended charity’s hands,” said Steve J. Bernas, president and CEO of the Better Business Bureau serving northern Illinois. “Consumers can ensure this will happen by asking the right questions when donating to any cause.”
