WOW!  So we are getting so close to $4K at the end of Day 3 and I have high hopes that things are going to pickup now that the weekend is over and everyone has to head back to work and their normal schedules.

I can not thank all of the donors and participants enough. You guys just rock!

I also have to thank all of you who are tweeting, facebooking, blogging, sharing links and just supporting us every step of the way. 

On top of that, we have some kickass volunteers who spend countless hours at their computers making sure everything runs smoothly.  Thank you all!

It is humbling to see everyone come together and promote the Boobie-Thon in their own way.  I sometimes don't know what to say, because thank you doesn't seem to be enough.

For a limited time only!

Well we didn't do too shabby today folks.  Almost $2K in the first 24 hours.  We can not thank you enough for all your support, the donations, the photos, tweets and encouragement! 

While we get our beauty rest, you can continue to donate and submit your photos overnight. We'll be back Saturday morning at 8am with site updates and hopefully a ton of photos to publish.  If you aren't sure what sorta photo to submit, feel free to take a peek at the sampler page (not safe for work) I quickly put together.  I'll add some other ideas tomorrow as well. You can also peruse the past events for more ideas.  And if you have a photo request, feel free to send it in or tweet it to us and we'll do our best to get them in for you.

Remember..."If they're worth looking at, they're worth saving!"

Almost daily, I’m encouraged to “keep fighting!” and, while I sincerely appreciate the emboldening intention, I’m always a bit perplexed.

I’m not fighting. In fact, I’ve never fought

Welcome to the 9th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon

Post by: Mel at 12:00 AM on Friday, Oct 01 2010 in News | Permalink | Contact

We're so happy to see you all again!  Thanks for coming out and showing your support for us year after year.

As of 12:01 AM October 1st, donations are open.  Every year we have chosen a "bloggers helping bloggers" charity in the spirit of the original Boobie-Thon. This year our secondary charity's proceeds will go directly to the Fund for Gulf Coast Restoration to assist in the clean-up efforts due to the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. It's completely up to you to decide which charity you wish to donate to -- or you can donate to both of them.  Remember, your donations to both of these charities are completely tax deductible.

So stop reading this...and go donate! smile

Live Tweet Action:: Just like last year we will be live tweeting the throughout the entire Boobie-Thon and you can follow us  here -- not only am I tweeting, but we also have a few volunteers getting in on the action this year.

Facebook Fan:: We reached over 1000 facebook fans this past week - please share our page with your friends and spread the boobie love!

Link us up:: Don’t forget to grab a button or badge and link to us on your blog.

Do One Thing:: If you don't know what you can do to help, do one of these things and it will make a difference.

We'll be around for a bit tonight updating the site...remember our regular updating hours are from 8:00 until midnight Eastern October 1st to the 7th.

Welcome to Pre-Boobie-Thon

Post by: Mel at 10:35 AM on Friday, Sep 24 2010 in News | Permalink | Contact

PLEASE NOTE: This main page of the site will always remain work-safe with text updates only, as will the RSS feed linked in the sidebar. Only the photos gallery aren't work-safe.

One week from today, we kick off the 9th Annual Blogger Boobie-Thon!  Can you believe it?  9 years ago this little baby was born, thanks to Robyn and now this baby has grown up and gets bigger and better year after year.  We've got some exciting stuff planned for this year and hope that you will join us for another whirlwind week.

The event officially kicks off on Friday October 1, 2010 at 12:00am EDT and will run through 11:59pm EDT on Thursday October 7, 2010.

For more information about previous events, please visit the Past Events page.  Over the last 8 years, the Boobie-Thon has raised over $64,000.00 and we could not have done it without all of you who have volunteered, submitted photos and opened your wallets. 

Today we have opened the gates to the photo submission area and are now accepting Pre-Launch photos.  These photos will appear on the site when we launch October 1st.

Just as years past, we will once again have a private, password protected pay-per-boobie area with bare-boobie photos for donors of $50.00 or more. In addition, weve got two BIG SPENDER categories -- minimum donation of $75.00 will gain you access to the  2010, 2009 and 2008 pay-per-boobie areas and minimum donations of $125.00 will gain you access to the 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006 and 2005 pay-per-boobie areas.

Please come back and visit on October 1st for more information on how to submit your pledge and make your donation.
