For each of the purple products that are sold, SanDisk will sent $1 to the charity, which not only funds research into Alzheimer's treatments but also provides care and counselling for victims of the illness and their families.

Belkin's favoured charity is the Susan G Komen for the Cure breast cancer organisation, which it's helping with a range of five rose-hued cases for the second-generation iPod Nano. All of the cases are priced at $25, from which Belkin will send the charity $2.50. It also pledged it would make a minimum donation of $225,000.
