In a drive to increase their credibility at least 7 eCig companies have associated themselves with breast cancer charities or awareness campaigns. Many produce limited or special edition pink eCigs and often promise to donate a portion of the sales to charity. Discreet Vape, which produces eCigs in the shape of medicinal inhalers "for the discerning vapor enthusiast", produced a limited edition device with "Proceeds of the LE Pink PUFFiT-X donated to cancer research". The majority of these ads are accompanied by promotions or discounts to encourage sales. An EverSmoke ad shows the torso of a woman with her breast covered by her hand and the pink breast cancer ribbon. The slogan reads "Save a Life. Save a Lung. Save a Boob." The same ad offers "25% off all Starter Kits". V2 offers a pink breast cancer lanyard when customers spend $50 or more. The South Beach Smoke Company has an ad featuring a pink battery on a pink background with white writing and the tagline "Purchase a limited edition pink battery & 5% of the proceeds will be donated to SGK". At a time when no research had been done into the health effects of eCigs this is a highly immoral advertising tactic, designed to play on people's fears of an often-fatal disease.
