And consumers in the U.S. and Canada can help simply by entering a giveaway online or by purchasing a limited edition pink Husqvarna toy chainsaw.
For every valid entry to the 2015 Husqvarna Breast Cancer Awareness Giveaway through October 31, Husqvarna will donate $1 to GreaterGood.org, a 501(c)(3) charitable organization that works to improve the health and well-being of people, pets, and the planet.
