What: Creative today announced it will donate a portion of the proceeds from pink Vado Pocket Video Cam sales to The Pink Agenda, an organization committed to raising money for breast cancer care and research and awareness of the disease among young professionals. This special promotion will run exclusively at Creative.com from August – December 2009.
“Creative strongly believes in supporting the fight against breast cancer, as many of our employees have been personally affected by the disease through their mothers, wives, sisters and friends,” said Steve Erickson, VP and GM of audio and video for Creative. “We’ve chosen to partner with The Pink Agenda to provide funding needed to help find a cure and promote education and awareness of this difficult disease.”
“The Pink Agenda is committed to ensuring that young men and women understand that while real strides have been made in the fight against breast cancer, it remains a significant problem, affecting 1 in 8 women,” said Marisa Renee Lee, president and founder of The Pink Agenda. “We are grateful for Creative’s support of our efforts to engage today’s generation to find tomorrow’s cure and hope that every time someone uses the Vado to capture special moments with their loved ones, they remember that their engagement in the search for a cure will allow the women we love to make memories for a long time to come.”
The Creative Vado Pocket Video Cam holds up to two hours of high-quality video and features one-touch uploading to YouTube and Photobucket. The camera also includes a removable rechargeable battery and a built-in two inch color LCD screen.

About The Pink Agenda
The Pink Agenda is a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization committed to raising money for breast cancer care and research and awareness of the disease among young professionals. The organization’s efforts are intended to not only expedite the eventual discovery of a cure for the disease, but to raise awareness among young professionals, resulting in earlier detection, as well as an understanding of where to go for support and resources if ever faced with a breast cancer diagnosis. The Pink Agenda was founded by Marisa Renee Lee in 2007, two years after her mother, Lisa Mae Lee, was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. Although the disease claimed Lisa’s life on February 28, 2008, the courage she showed during her battle with breast cancer continues to inspire The Pink Agenda’s efforts to engage today’s generation to find tomorrow’s cure.
