Tweeting For A Cure-8l9840

Womens-Issues Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’ve probably already been clued in to the fact that October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The national and worldwide recognition of "Pink October" is largely due to Social Media and web-related promotions. Twitter has been a hotbed for raising awareness of this month’s significance. The recently launched site,, keeps track of your $1.00 pledges every time you use the hash tag #tweetsforboobs on twitter. .e November, you will be notified of the total amount of your donation and can submit it online. In Europe, Samsung Electronics has launched the "Everybody’s Doing It" campaign in order to encourage women to check for breast cancer and promote early detection. They have released a viral video featuring eight women whose lives have been touched by cancer in some way. The video is being spread across sites such as YouTube, Facebook, twitter, and many others. Some twitter users have taken a more provocative approach to raise awareness. Twitter user @shimmer418 has started #boobiewed and every Wednesday encourages fellow users to change their avatar to something breast cancer related (most .monly, a pair of breasts). She has #boobiewed merchandise as well and donates all the profits to the National Breast Cancer Foundation. My personal favorite twitter promotion is the twibbon. With one click you can show your support for breast cancer by having a small pink ribbon placed on top of your current twitter avatar. You can get your twibbon at twibbon../join/Breast-Cancer-Research. If social media isn’t really your thing, you can always show your support in a more subtle way through donating or investing. I personally made the decision to invest in a .pany called Mentor Capital, which helps fund cancer immunotherapy research. Even if I don’t see a return on my investment, I know my money has gone to a great cause. You can find out more at breastcancerinvesting dot .. Happy tweeting! About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
