I just posted over 15 new photos to the covered gallery.  The VIP Pay-Per-Boobie gallery is also being updated while I type this up.  

Thank you for helping us break $1K today.  Thank you all for supporting us, sending in photos, making your donations and tweeting and linking to the 'thon.  We appreciate all that you do for us and we can't do it without you. 

Please continue to send in photos overnight so that we are busy tomorrow (make us work!).  The more photos, the more donations.  Speaking of donations, you can make your pledge at anytime -- choose either Komen or our Bloggers Helping Bloggers recipient Wendy -- or be completely badass and donate to both!   And because we love you, we also have a wonderful blog design giveaway from Moxie to make the deal even sweeter. 

Whew.  

It's been a long day and we are just getting started.  We'll be back bright and earlier in the AM to post photos and verify all donations that come in over night. Until then, get your cameras out and send us your pics!

Wendy shares her story

November 11, 2010 was the day that changed my life—my surgeon called to let me know that I had breast cancer. I had a large lump on the right side of my breast (which I found a few weeks before), but after my mammogram, we found there were also several small spots of high-grade DCIS in other areas.

To see all of the survivor stories, please visit the Survivor Gallery. If you are a survivor, we would love for you to share your story.

October 1st is here

Today is our first full day of the Boobie-Thon.  We are working on getting new photos up in both the covered and VIP Pay-Per-Boobie galleries.  

We have our volunteers standing by ready to edit and publish your photos, so get them in to us. Please check out the FAQ for photo guidelines and suggestions.  We welcome multiple submissions as well. 

We are less than $500 away from breaking $1K.  Thank you all for your support and donations.  Remember your donations to Komen are tax deductible and we also have our Bloggers Helping Bloggers charity. 

We will be here all day, giving you updates and photos.  

Have a great Saturday!

Bloggers Helping Bloggers & Welcome to the Boobie-Thon

Post by: Mel at 7:10 PM on Friday, Sep 30 2011 in News | Permalink | Contact

I say this every year, but in keeping with the spirit of the 1st Boobie-Thon, we are so happy to be able to choose a blogger who needs our help now.

When Statia (the reason we even have a Boobie-Thon*NSFW* today!) talked to me about nominating Wendy for the Bloggers Helping Bloggers charity back in July, I already knew that there was no choice to be made.  Wendy  has been a long time supporter and volunteer of the Boobie-Thon.  She was diagnosed with breast cancer last November and at the same time, she lost her job.   She went through treatment this past year.  She fought hard and just a few weeks ago, her PET scan came back all clear.   We are so happy that she is doing well physically (when breast cancer is found early, the 5 year survival rate is 98%).  However, a year without a job, cobra payments and insane medical bills...well do we need to say anymore?  Wendy needs our help and that's what we do at the Boobie-Thon!  So please help us, help Wendy by making a donation directly to her via paypal. 

With that said, the 10th Annual Boobie-Thon is open (a wee bit early) and taking donations and of course accepting all of your photo submissions

Just a quick note to let everyone know that pre-launch photos are now being accepted

We are still working on the site so if you notice anything weird going on, we know about it and are just doing some testing and tweaking before our official launch on October 1st!

Also, if you are interested in helping out this year, we need photo editors.  Please contact us for more details.

The 10th Annual Boobie-Thon is almost here!

Hey guys.  It's been awhile but it doesn't really feel like it.  I hope you all have had a fabulous year and are ready to kick off the TENTH (can you really believe it?) Boobie-Thon!  

This year's 'thon officially launches October 1st, but start to get those cameras out, because we accept pre-launch photos on Monday September 26th (in FIVE DAYS!).  There's much to do between now and then. 

As always, we are in need of volunteers.  If you are interested in volunteering please please please get in touch.  There are a ton of spots open for pre-launch and event photos.  

Thank you all for your continued support throughout the years.  Let's make the BIG TEN the biggest yet!
