Get you attention?

It's October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. V and I support several cancer charitable organizations. We support The American Cancer Society and Komen for the Cure to name a couple. An organization that we also support, that raises money for for Komen and The KatScan Fund is Boobie-Thon.

Controversial? Sure. But they raise one heck of a lot of money for causes that we support.

From the site:

2008 marks the Seventh Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon. Bloggers from all over the globe send in photos of their boobies (covered and uncovered) to help raise money for Breast Cancer Research.

In the past six years we have raised over $40,000.00 for Breast Cancer Research and we are back to do it all again on October 1, 2008!

The 2008 event kicks off on Wednesday October 1, 2008 and will run for one full week, ending at 11:59 pm on Tuesday October 7, 2008. Just as we have done in the past, the first $359.00 raised will go towards the Bloggers-Helping-Bloggers portion of the event. All remaining money will go to Komen.

For more detailed information about the Blogger Boobie-Thon and how it started, please visit The History of the Boobie-Thon written by Robyn in 2005. You can also find another “History of the Boobie-thon” at
If women using their breasts to raise funds for breast cancer research and awareness is not your thing, these other organizations could sure use your help:

For more information on breast cancer and breast health issues, go to the following sites:

The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation

Y-ME National Breast Cancer Organization

The American Cancer Society


A quick aside. Y-ME was the only organization that could provide breast cancer materials in Vietnamese for the women who work with me.

Early detection is the key to surviving breast cancer.
