VALHALLA, N.Y., October 1, 2010 – FUJIFILM North America Corporation today announced a new pink digital camera bundle that will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.

The Fujifilm Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Camera bundle will be carried regionally by J&R in New York, and Electronics Expo in New Jersey. It will also be available nationally through Amazon.com and ShopFujifilm.com. The Pink camera bundle will retail for $159.95, and will be available through 2010.
“We are proud to be offering the Breast Cancer Awareness camera. Fujifilm is not only providing consumers an appealing camera package, but in the process, we’re helping to build awareness for a vital women’s health issue, and supporting a stellar organization,” said Marci Lane, product manager, Electronic Imaging Division, FUJIFILM North America Corporation.
Fujifilm will also include an additional print with all print orders filled during the month of October that will help to generate awareness of the efforts of the NBCF as well as invite visitors to the newly refreshed Images of Health web site, and its Spanish-language counterpart, RetratosDeSalud.com. The sites encourage women of all ages to tell their inspirational stories of breast cancer survival and give their personal advice for healthy living. Fujifilm will donate $1 for each story shared, $2 for each story with a photo posted, and $2 for each video, with a commitment to contributing up to $50,000 to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc.
