think pink & comment for a cause! (comments closed!)

As you probably know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and so many people have shown their support in amazing ways in recent weeks.  I was particularly inspired by Blaubushka's 'blogging for boobs' post. I'm not sure this post qualifies as “amazing” but I had been brainstorming about what I could do and I came up with the following...

It's pretty simple and it works like this, for each comment left here by one of you lovely people I am going to donate $2 to pinkribbon.org! In your comments you can mention someone you know who has had breast cancer, share your thoughts about the disease, pledge your own donation or just say hello! One comment per person, I should add. Anonymous commenters please leave your name or link. Also please retweet, blog, or tumbl a link to this post! I’m hoping this little experiment works... if it does I may have to cap it off at a certain number cause I'm no Daddy Warbucks, then again,  if I only get 4 comments I'll add a bit extra to the donation. We shall see!

Thanks everyone!

what a sweet idea! my aunt died of breast cancer a few years ago. it's terrifying how many women are struck by it.
