Blizzard just announced that they are teamed up with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation to release a special charity skin Pink Mercy in Overwatch. On Play Overwatch website they state on their blog:
Available for purchase in-game and online through May 21, all sales of this limited-time legendary Pink Mercy skin will benefit BCRF and their mission to end breast cancer.
They go on to say, As a brilliant scientist and the guardian angel of Overwatch, Dr. Angela Ziegler—codename Mercy—has dedicated her life to helping and healing others. Now you can help BCRF work toward a cure for breast cancer by purchasing the new PINK MERCY skin, available for a limited time on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Blizzard Entertainment will donate 100% the proceeds that it receives from all Pink Mercy skin sales to BCRF, with a guaranteed minimum donation of $250,000 (USD). The total donation amount will be disclosed after the campaign concludes on May 21.
Several Streamers will be showing their support. Each creator chosen by Blizzard Entertainment, will have a designated streaming day. This will be done via Twitch of course. Here is a tentative schedule as of now:
