I am sure a lot of you have heard of Product Red (PRODUCT RED - Learn - How Red Works, Red Brands) and I am sure you have also heard of XM Radio (XM Satellite Radio - America's #1 Satellite Radio Service). In case you don't know XM Radio has a channel called "Pink", and as far as I understand all of the profits that "Pink" brings in goes directly to the Susan G. Komen Cancer Association. At least nine companies have signed agreements so far to donate portions of their daily income to Product Red. For example, Starbucks agreed to donate 5 cents of every "Red" labeled beverage purchased to Product Red. In December alone, they raised over $1.4 million dollars. Going back to XM Radio I can picture "The Red Channel". "Red" would be based on the same principles as "Pink". As far as the music goes, I can picture this being a Rap, soul, R&B (hint: urban music - Africa, no racism intended) blend. If Starbucks could round up $1.4 million in just one month, imagine what XM could do in, let's say, one year. If you are reading this, would you please write in with your comments, suggestions, or approval. If this thread really grows, I might send it to XM as early as March (depending on it's response performance) for them to review. I want to personally thank you in advance for taking time to read and/or respond to this thread, every person counts. -mmccul

I think it is a wonderful idea!! But you will have to go through Sirius Satellite Radio who have bought out XM. Another problem for them right now is just keeping their heads above the water.

Keep us posted on it I will back you!!! Not that that means anything!

Two corrections to my original post. 1. Sirius and XM have merged, they are now SiriusXM. 2. This thread will be sent to both SiriusXM and Product Red. -mmccul

Trust me on this we had a bigger company 'merge' with us several years 10 to exact. They changed the name to included us. changed the stock ticker even. But they took us over it was a buyout. Their management, their rules, Same with Sirius except they kept their ticker SIRI. I did follow this pretty close too, as I have a lifetime membership since 2005 with Sirius. But that is just semantics. Good Luck and God Speed!!!
