That's exactly the way I see it. Even if there's only $1 or $2 given per headset, look how we are all discussing that this is for breast cancer research. I have given money about 5 different ways to breast cancer (supported a walker for a walk-a-thon, bought baked goods at a bake sale, bought a pink rubber bracelet, etc.) but the most important part is Awareness and Chris King's gesture has ensured that in a mountain bike forum we actually discuss it and we all state how we support it.
The stats are staggering, I think it's something like 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer. I have a wife and two daughters. I don't like to hear stats like that.
Anyway, I'll be getting a pink headset. When I hit the trial and get comments or questions from people about the headset I'll tell them exactly why I got it.
