DON’T SUPPORT PINK MERCY SKIN!!”

Ok, why?

BECAUSE THE PINK RIBBON IS BAD!”

While yes, the creator of the Pink Ribon symbol and her foundation fuckin sucks ass, the company that Blizzard is supporting it’s highly viable, the BCRF has been an A+ foundation with a clean history.

IF THEY WANTED TO DONATE THE MONEY THEY COULD HAVE DONE IT THEMSELVES!!!”

While this argument is kinda super true, the point isn’t only the money, but also spreading the word, sure, they COULD HAVE donated a ton of money themselves and actually I would love if as a plus they do that, but a lot of people, specially younger people, are learning about the existence of this foundation just now.

I had no fuckin clue about the BCRF till the campain came out, never heard of it, a ton of people didn’t, the fact that such an influential game is spreading the word via their own game is a huge boost for the campaign.

THEY MAKE YOU PAY FOR THE SKIN WHICH TAKES THE VALUE OUT OF YOUR GOOD DEED!!!”

A: Not all donations get you the Mercy skin, the goals are there to encourage players who don’t care about the campain but may want the collectables, AND to reward people for their good heart.

B: The 100% of the money collected goes directly to the charity.

C: Again, you’re not paying for the skin, you are donating money to a charity, the skin, the stickers and icons are all just rewards for people with big hearts.

D: Ton of donators are giving money via the streams, and some of them choose to donate a lot without getting reward.

SOME PEOPLE DON’T EVEN CARE ABOUT THE TOPIC AND JUST WANT THE DAMN SKIN”

That proves that the skin idea is effective, sure, they may not care, but the skin hooked em into supporting too, the BCRF wins money even if you donate 1 dolar from the heart or a 100 looking for something back.

Sure, it’s kinda screwy doin good deeds only for what you may get, but it’s up to the person, that ain’t Blizzard nor the BCRF fault.

In conclusion?

SUPPORT PINK MERCY.

Also, it’s worth pointing out that Blizzard is donating $250,000 regardless. So that’s on top of what they raise at the end of the event.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
