Boob-A-Thon 2009

As I posted recently, I am trying to decide just what organization(s) I will be donating to this year.

I have made the decision that the first organization will be Susan G. Komen for the cure of breast cancer.

I supported this organization last year when my good friend Jules participated in the 3-day walk in Chicago. I kicked it up a notch and decided to do something fun in means of fundraising. I hosted the first ever Snarkalicious Boob-A-Thon, which between direct donations and matching contributions, raised $300.

This year, I have decided that I will be supporting Susan G. Komen again, this time in honor of Betty Wood.

Some of you are probably wondering just who this woman is, and it's not someone I know personally (though I would have liked to, however, I did meet her at a NKOTB Parents autograph signing at the mall way back in the day). She is the mother of NKOTB member, Danny Wood.

It's no secret that I am addicted and love all things New Kids. Now I can take that love and do good with it.

With that said, I will also need your help. Please consider participating in the 2009 Snarkalicious Boob-A-Thon. Send a photo of your "girls" (tasteful, please!) and for every unique set, I will donate $2. Guys can participate, too (did you that men can also get breast cancer?).


(feel free to take the above imagine and link on your site)

I will post the photos weekly (I can link you, or you can submit anonymously) and keep a running tab of money raised.

If you don't feel like you can participate by showing your boobs (again, tasteful - cleavage is okay, nipples not so much), please consider making a direct donation. You can also help by donating prizes to be awarded to Boob-A-Thon participants (contact me if you'd like to help).

The stipulations are:
1) Submission must be tasteful
2) Submission must be your own (please don't send me photos of your neighbor's rack - I don't want any nasty grams in my inbox)
3) Only one submission per person (if you are undecided and want to send a couple photos, that is fine, but I will select which to post, and it will only be counted as 1 monetary amount)
4) While I am hoping that I will get more submissions than I can keep up with, please understand that I am not a millionaire (plus, I have a NKOTB habit to support!) and will need to cap off the donations at the amount that best suits myself and my family

How to participate:
Email me at snarkysarah AT gmail DOT com
Include your name (or blog name) and if you would like to be linked or not

Keep yourself healthy, check your "girls" and Remember Betty...

Shoot! Melissa beat me to it. I was going to say:

"Do they have to be tasteful pictures?"

LOL

How'd I guess that you two would be the ones giving me grief?

I wanted to get the point across - I don't need any nipples staring me in the face when I open my email, thankyouverymuch.

hey, I linked from In Search of NKOTB. Just wondering, do you have paypal or link set up so we can donate as well as participate with pics of the tata's?

I will not take any money from anyone, but encourage anyone that wants to donate directly to do so. Donations can be made directly to the Susan G. Komen foundation at: http://ww5.komen.org/donate/donateonline.html

And if you do plan on donating directly, please let me know your contribution, as I will roll into my accumulating total (last year I had 2 who made matching contributions)

I hope you still participate here as well! The more money raised, the better!
