Thanks for the mammaries!

We closed out an amazingly successful 10 days of the 2004 Boobie-Thon at 11:59 p.m. EDT on Sunday night, October 10th.

Our total raised...drumroll please...was $8696.30. That's over $1650 more than the total take for the 2003 event!

We raised a staggering $8241.30 for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation during our 10-day event this year. Since the Boobie-Thon kicked off in 2002, we've raised a total of $16,178.75 for Komen!

And we could not have done it without all of you!

Beginning in September 2005, please stay tuned to boobiethon.com for updates regarding the 2005 event. It's set to kick off at 12:00 a.m. EDT on Saturday, October 1, 2005. You can watch the countdown clock above as that date approaches. We'll see you then!

Thanks so much,
The 2004 Boobie-Thon Staff


P.S. Just because the 2004 event is over, doesn't mean your generosity has to end. Please continue to donate directly to Komen — and don't forget to fund free mammograms each and every day!

Lisa, Lisa - the one I adore

Everyone needs to give up some mad love for Lisa this year! She handled ALL photo submissions (regular, pay, you name it) by herself — for the ten days of the 2004 event, and the days prior to launch, so the site would already be full of pics when traffic started to roll in at midnight on October 1st. She has worked 'round the clock in Photoshop, Movable Type, and Gmail and it shows. This year has topped last year's total take by over $1600 — and this year's event was 24 hours shorter due to the weekend calendar. I did photos and donations by myself for the 'Thon's first two years (2002*, 2003) but there is absolutely no way I could have done it all on my own this year!

Which leads me to...many, many thanks also go out to our donation coordinators (Jennifer, Sonia, and Amanda) and press coordinator (Stacy). This year's event would not have been possible without each and every one of them. So stop by their blogs and tell them thanks! They deserve the pat on the back!

Thanks to all the volunteers for ALL of your help! And thanks to all of you who linked, sent photos in, and donated this year! Can't wait to see you in 2005...

Love,
-Robyn

And I want to thank you...

[Komen honor note]

We checked our P.O. Box this evening, and two "in honor of" cards from Komen had arrived. These are the ones mentioned on the donations page, and we'll be collecting any that are received and passing on to bloggers Sandee and Dori. Thought everyone might like to see an example...

There's just over an hour and a half left in the 2004 event to get your photos and donations in!
