NORTH CANTON, Ohio (3/28/08)--Diebold is launching pink and green campaigns to raise funds for cancer research and the environment, announced the global ATM manufacturer Thursday. DieboldDirect, Diebold Inc.'s inside direct sales organization, has teamed with the Northeast Ohio affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure to promote breast cancer awareness by offering pink vacuum air tube (VAT) carriers to customers with drive-thru systems from Diebold or a competitor. One dollar from the sale of each carrier will be donated to the chapter to aid research for a breast cancer cure. Part of the proceeds from the sale of other DieboldDirect pink products also will be earmarked for the charity. Products include ATM receipt paper, deposit envelopes, paper credit card gloves, lanyards and ATM wrap panels. The first customer to employee the pink product was First Ohio Community FCU, North Canton. Kim Lapinski, CEO, said the credit union staff dons pink shirts on Fridays to further show support.
