The fifth annual blogger "Boobie-Thon" launches on Sunday, October 1, 2006. It will run through 11:59 p.m. EDT on Saturday, October 7, 2006. This yearly event features bloggers showing their (covered and uncovered) breasts in order to raise money for charity during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. (Please click here for the 2005 site). Watch this space in the upcoming days for more information and updates, and go here for information on how to submit your photograph!
For more information on the over $26,000 we've raised since 2002, please visit the official 2005 Boobie-Thon website.
For information on our media features, visit our press page.
We're requesting that in the spirit of the original Boobie-Thon, the first $359 donated this year go toward Children's Hospital Boston as the "bloggers helping bloggers" portion of the Boobie-Thon. We have selected this charity to honor Baby Samson, the son of the bloggers at snazzykat.com and minorthird.com. Samson was born on February 24, 2006, with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome a.k.a. HLHS. His parents have requested Children's Hospital as the recipient of donations in his honor. (You can find more on the history of the $359 donation here.)
The remainder of the proceeds raised will go directly to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, for the fifth straight year in a row. To date we have raised more than $24,000 for Komen alone since starting the Boobie-Thon in 2002.
Your donations to both charities are tax deductible, and this year the Boobie-Thon will be once again operating as in a pledge capacity rather than taking your donations personally.
Please check back on October 1st for information on submitting your pledges to us, and your donations directly to our selected charities.posted by Robyn on 09.02.06 at 07:32 PM
