*For Immediate Release: Bloggers bare all for breast cancer research!*

October 1, 2005 --Boobies. Although they come in all shapes and sizes (large, small, saggy and perky), they have one thing in common: The ability to develop cancer.

Even though there is no cure yet, the fourth annual Blogger Boobie-Thon is doing its part to make cancer a thing of the past.

From October 1-8, bloggers from across the globe can submit pictures of bare and covered breasts to raise money for breast cancer causes.

Founded in 2002 by Florida blogger Robyn Pollman (www.shutterblog.com,) the Boobie-Thon has grown into a well-known event, raising over $17,000 for breast cancer and blogger-charity causes, with over 1000 people contributing pictures. The event raised $8696 in 2004, with $455 going to a secondary charity: AIDS Rock the Walk. The rest of the donations go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Featured in Self Magazine’s “Body Confidence Awards” in 2004, both founders and participants are hoping to generate exposure and donations for a worthy cause. In response to Hurricane Katrina, this year donors can choose to donate to either The Red Cross or the Komen Foundation.

Both male and female bloggers can submit pictures of their breasts. The covered boobies are featured on the free area of the site. The price of viewing the bare breasts is $50, made payable to Komen or The Red Cross. A copy of an e-receipt is needed in order to gain the password to the “Not Safe for Work” portion of the site.

We will be happy to assist you in finding participants to fit the angle of your story.
