Strength by OtterBox: Pink Cases to Support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade

Together We Have the Strength to Fight Breast Cancer

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - May 8, 2008) - Imagine the amount of strength it would take to overcome breast cancer? For all the lives impacted every year, Otter Products, LLC. partners with the Avon Foundation to offer limited edition pink cases as a show of support for those fighting, the survivors and those who have lost someone to breast cancer. By purchasing an OtterBox for iPhone or iPod nano Defender™ Series Strength case, OtterBox will donate 10% of the purchase price to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade to support access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved.

"OtterBox is honored to offer pink cases to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade," said Curt Richardson, CEO of Otter Products, LLC. "As one of the most common cancers in women, breast cancer is something that has affected nearly all of us at OtterBox and we are dedicated to our partnership with the Avon Foundation to work together in fighting this disease."

"The Avon Foundation is so grateful to OtterBox for supporting us with these special and useful products," said Carol Kurzig, executive director, Avon Foundation. "Together, Avon and OtterBox can raise more awareness and funds that will ultimately result in saving lives."

OtterBox will offer its popular Defender™ Series line to protect the iPhone and nano 3rd generation from drops, bumps and shock.* These sleek, slim fit cases provide complete screen and Click Wheel interaction right through the case and three innovative layers of protection:

--  Layer 1: Clear polycarbonate sheet with high performance hard coating
    that offers chemical and abrasion protection.
--  Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate skeleton.
--  Layer 3: Premium grade silicone skin to provide added protection
    against drop, bump and shock.
    

The iPhone case provides access to the home, volume, sleep/wake buttons and proximity sensor and acoustic vents on speaker phone and headset speaker allow clear sound transmission. The nano case provides access to the hold button. Headphone jacks and dock connectors accessible on both cases.
