Are you a blogger who would like to make a difference?
Did you know that around 1000 women die from breast cancer every month? One in eight women will develop breast cancer at sometime in their lifetime. It is important to note that men also get breast cancer. The good news is that more people are surviving breast cancer due to greater awareness, improved treatments and better screening.
In my new role with Britmums, I have become aware of a Breakthrough Breast Cancer fundraising initiative. If I am to encourage other bloggers to blog about good causes, I felt I should have a go at doing something myself.
So I am looking for 90 generous bloggers to write about an important woman in their life in 90 words and to join in this blog hop. You can write about any woman that matters to you – a grandmother, a mum, a daughter, a friend, a blogger, a boss, whoever you wish. Posts can be as long or short as you wish. Somwhere in your blog post, please add the following words and thereby help Breakthrough Breast Cancer
“Pink Ribbon Bingo have pledged to support Breakthrough Breast Cancer all year round with 15% of the gross revenue accrued through online play on the site being donated to the charity. Visitors also have the opportunity to donate a percentage of their winnings directly to the charity. Along with the fundraising element, Pink Ribbon Bingo and The Daily Mail online will be helping the charity to raise awareness by promoting their vital health messages such as TLC (Touch, Look, Check).”
You can also add should you wish to do so …
“Celebrity supporter videos on the Pink Ribbon Bingo website including Jessie J, Melanie C, Tom Ellis, Macy Gray, Sharon Corr and Kelly Hoopen – http://www.pinkribbonbingo.com/ .
If you click on these YouTube links, you can hear Kate Thornton and Tamzin Outwaite’s support.
I have set a target of 90 bloggers and 90 word posts to reflect the 90 numbers in the game of bingo.
Also 90 words is not too demanding as I know bloggers are very busy people.
Will you join in and support Breakthrough Breast Cancer?
90 posts seems an ambitious target but I am putting my faith in the blogging community.
Ready, steady, blog and link up.
Thank you in anticipation. The linky looks odd but if you click on it, it does work.
