2007 Blogger Boobie-Thon for breast cancer

Saturday, September 22, 2007

pink ribbon So, you may remember that October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but do you know about the annual Blogger Boobie-Thon for breast cancer? I just learned about it last week. It’s a website organized to gain donations for breast cancer research, through nudity (which, as we all know, is a consistently successful fundraising technique). The tagline is: “We Share to Make You Care.” And it’s back for its sixth year. Here’s a quote from their recent press release:

Six years of tradition has the blogger community sharing, and baring, their chests for the best reason they can think of – fighting cancer.

That’s right, the racks are back Oct. 1-8 and they’re committed to raising more than $10,000 in one week by unveiling Mother Nature’s greatest gifts. That’s right, we’re saying it, BOOBIES.

“I love the idea,” says Melissa Connolly, 2007 coordinator, “If someone’s going to ogle my goods, they can at least make a donation to save boobies and lives!”

To help encourage you to visit the Blogger Boobie-Thon and make a donation (and ogle, of course, if you like), here are some sample photo contributions from 2005 and 2006 (these two links, like a few of the images below, are not safe for work).

2007 Blogger Boobie-Thon It’s an excellent charitable excuse to look at naked breasts (both female and male), which is hard to argue against. Now you can do your part to find a cure for cancer through “pink-ribbon pornography,” as a photo contributor and/or by making a charitable contribution to the Blogger Boobie-Thon. So, blog away, bloggers!

Lastly, I want to mention that a couple of my favorite Flash cartoon websites just released new episodes for two of their animation series. We have Salad Fingers Episode 8 from David Firth at Fat-Pie.com and Cat Face 5 from Weebl’s Stuff. Also, I found this short, surreally animated film by Paxson Woelber called “Reflection.” And this short cartoon titled “Greenville.” Enjoy!
