Pink PocketWizard Units Being Auctioned Off to Benefit Breast Cancer Victims

pinkpocketwizard1

A little over a year ago, we shared the story of photographer Bob Carey and his wife, a breast cancer survivor. Over the past year, Carey and his Project Tutu have done a great deal to raise awareness for breast cancer. By going around the world and photographing himself in a pink tutu (and nothing else), he’s done a lot to further the cause for breast cancer victims and their families.

Now, Carey is partnering up with PocketWizard and LPA Design to auction off 20 PocketWizard Plus III Transceivers manufactured in “tutu pink” and then signed and numbered by Carey himself.

Keep in mind, this isn’t just a regular PocketWizard Plus III that has been painted pink. In partnership with LPA Design, PocketWizard made sure these were pink to their core. Even the LED backlight of the LCD screen is pink.

If you want to help out a great cause by purchasing one of these limited edition products, however, you better have your auction game-face on. The PocketWizard Plus III retails for $150 … with four days left, the one numbered one of twenty is already at $330 and rising on eBay.

If you can’t afford that but you still want to help, PocketWizard will also be offering a limited run of tutu pink G-Wiz Squared bags, which will be available for purchase off of its website beginning in June. All net proceeds from both the Plus III Transceivers and the G-Wiz Squared bags will go directly to the Carey Foundation.

To find out more about the project and/or do your part by bidding for one of these special Pink Plus IIIs, head over to the PocketWizard blog or try your luck on eBay.

    Pink Pocket Wizard. That sounds like the name of a ladies self-pleasure toy.

    If there’s any disease LESS in need of increased funding and more “awareness” efforts than breast cancer, I can’t think of it. Why can’t wet get this kind of thing going for heart disease, which kills far more women than breast cancer? Oh, right – because it’s not about hooters.

    Great point… Buying something in pink generally does nothing to cure breast cancer or help anyone that has it.

    My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer a few months ago – fortunately super early, so the prognosis is really good. They really do have a very good understanding of the disease. I also find the obsession with breast cancer a bit strange – there are much scarier diseases to have that could really use the kind of press that breast cancer is getting.

    Awareness is always good, especially since catching it early makes a huge difference, but we should give other issues the attention they deserve too.
