I have been participating and donating since the start of the boobiethon. I have seen more friends than I care to mention have breast cancer and want to help out. I like that this is fun and I’m excited to support you
What started out as a fun project with a few blogger friends in 2002 has turned into a great, annual cause that I look forward to being involved with in any way.
Dedicated to my mother-in-law, Janet, who succumbed to cancer in February 2006
Healthy boobies, healthy women, healthy world!
My mom passed away from breast cancer in 1984. She is my hero, so I think participating in Boobie-thon is a nice way to honor her. We at Moxie Design Studios have participated and supported Boobie-thon since 2003 and are thrilled to be involved again.
Plus, hello! Boobies!
I decided to volunteer in honor of my best friend’s mother, Momma P. I’m proud to have been a part of this fundraiser since its inception and I’m thrilled that I can donate my time in addition to my money for such a good cause.
because its too late to submit my rack
I have had several friends battle breast cancer and kick it’s ass. This is a creative way to raise money for finding a cure so that maybe one day others won’t have to fight as hard. I enjoy volunteering every year and plan to continue volunteering for many years to come.
I’ve participated over the years and I thought it would be nice to volunteer as well!
Being a healthcare professional, I am active in a number of health education/promotional activities. Boobie-Thon is one of the single most creative and engaging ways I have found to educate adults and to encourage their donations to the Komen Foundation to further research and clinical/supportive care.
I am pleased to be part of this event: as participant for the last several years, as a supporter on Web 2.0/virtual spaces, and now as a photo editor volunteer.
I lost a friend in 2003 to this awful disease and know someone who is still kicking its ass since 1998. Being a part of something so great & being able to come together with others to raise money for Breast Cancer is now forever my life. Once cancer has affected you in some way, it will always be a part of you. I love you Andrea and Sandee. Let’s make this year’s Boobie-thon the best one yet!
I’ve been involved since the first year and can’t imagine NOT being involved in some capacity every year.
Breast cancer, unfortunately, claimed my aunt back in the early 70s. Aunt Joan was an amazing woman. She was a wife, mother, sister, daughter, a fantastic aunt, and a registered nurse. Even though she was a nurse and had access to the best doctors, back in the 70s there just wasn’t any real education about breast cancer. Nobody talked about breast self-exam or yearly mammograms, and treatment was very limited. Her battle was painful.
If anything, my aunt’s legacy is one of increased awareness. It started with family first, and over the years it has become something of a mantra for us. Like many families of those who didn’t survive, we are advocates for breast cancer awareness and research, and we tend to be loud about it.
I am blessed to be a Breast Cancer Survivor. It is my passion to assist women presently, in the battle and give of my time to volunteer. i encourage you, to do the same.
I volunteered for the Boobie-Thon because I believe this fundraising event not only brings in a great amount of donations, it also brings awareness to the world. I happily give my time and photos of the girls to support this cause!
It’s a very worthy cause for me to donate my talents for.
I’ve followed the “Boobie-thon” now for years! And I think it’s for a wonderful cause. I’m a SAHM and I don’t bring home any income so I can’t donate actual money to its cause but I can donate my time. I’m excited about helping this take place this year. Thanks for allowing me to be a part of it!
I’m an artist and a long-time supporter of women’s issues and am excited to use my graphics skills to help support breast health. I’ve been a fan of Boobiethon for years now- it’s a beautiful way for us to celebrate our bodies as we work to prevent breast cancer.
I’ve been following the Boobie-Thon for years now, submitted photos of my girls, spread the word… this year I wanted to do more.
I know a few survivors who fought and made it because it was caught soon enough. Raising awareness and spreading the word about how essential check-ups are is important. Thank you for giving me the chance to be part of this!
I volunteered because I believe that every little bit helps the cause.
Mother. Legal Secretary. Movie & music fiend. Book lover. Blogger. Renthead.
I volunteered because it is a good cause and I wanted to help in any way possible.
Is there any better cause to support?
I love boobies of all shapes and sizes and I figured that if sharing mine could help raise money to save the chi~chis on a global level, than my goodness, thats the least I can do!
and um cancer is the devil
After donating my money & my boobies for the past six years, I figured I needed to step it up a bit and donate my time & mad intarwebz skillz too! I do this for my family, friends and strangers - we all know someone who was/is/could be affected by breast cancer. We need to do all that we can to beat it!
I think that Boobie-Thon is a great way to raise money for this cause - it’s benefiting everyone!
This is my first year working with BT and I think its a great way to raise money. 3 people in my life have been effected by breast cancer so when this came up I had to volunteer.
i love boobies and i love helping people… this combines the two
I’ve been a Boobiethon participant for many years & am glad to have gotten my act together in time to volunteer.
Cancer is a serious issue for us all. Breast cancer seems to get the most attention, and I have friends that are high risk for it, so I want to help raise money for research any way I can. I figure if we can get to a cure for any form of cancer, we can cure all cancer.
For the past couple of years, a couple online friends have volunteered for this and seeing how good they felt by offering their time helping out a good cause. I too, also want to be involved as my Own Grandma is battling Cancer and she is my rock right now…and I want to feel like I am helping her in every way possible!!!
