I hope that we can agree that pink is, hands down, an awesome color. It’s saucy, it’s edgy, and it goes so well with black. Pink is also the color that represents the fight against breast cancer, which I also hope we can agree is a worthy cause.
You know who else likes pink? Overwatch’s Mercy, who is sporting the color this month to do her part to bring healing to the real world. From now through May 21st, players can buy Mercy’s limited-edition skin and have all of the proceeds go toward the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
“Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% the proceeds that it receives from all Pink Mercy skin sales to BCRF, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 (USD),” the studio promised. “The total donation amount will be disclosed after the campaign concludes on May 21st.”
Players can also become involved this month by buying an actual Mercy t-shirt, logging in to unlock a free BCRF icon, and watch charity streams for sprays.
