Blogging for Breast Cancer: Cooperation Is a Beautiful Thing

Published in: News

Good morning, ladies. 🙂 I hope you slept well.


Can you believe that today’s the last Sunday in October? November’s right around the corner. By this time next week, we’ll have said goodbye to yet another Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means no more pink ribbons for a while (they’ll go back into storage).

Why it’s personal to me…

I’m kinda melancholy about it, but I feel like the world made good BCA progress this year. No cure yet, and much of the increased awareness comes via corporations commercializing the cause, but ultimately the how/why doesn’t matter, does it? More of us are aware of the disease than we were a month ago, and that’s a good thing no matter what.

Strike while the iron’s hot

There are still seven October days left for one final push to raise funds for research and support. That’s why I’m upping the ante in our MBB fundraiser for Susan G. Komen for the Cure. I pledge to match every $1 you donate through the widget here with $2 of my own (up to $500 total). If you can give $5, I’ll match you with $10 (for $15 total).


Can you help?And if you make a donation to Komen through a different blog or through their site directly, just e-mail me a picture/scan of your receipt, and I’ll make the same 2-1 match (up to $500 total).

I feel like we should strike while the iron’s hot because soon we’ll move on to other causes, and the holidays will take center stage.

Please help make one final push before the end of October. 🙂

Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,

    Karen, please check your email – I couldn’t get the widget to work well with Firefox, but am sending you my receipt. Thanks for doing this – I’ve had at least triple the amount of pleasure from your blog as I’ve had from the donation I made. You’re a star.

    This is such a great cause and a very generous contribution as well.

    I would love to contribute but since I’m 18, I can’t get my own credit card or anything! Technically I can but I still live with my parents & they aren’t fond of the idea of me having a Visa or Mastercard… I have however donated what I can at hospitals and malls around me. I love collecting the ribbons too!
