It is very hard not smile when you hear the name Team Boobylicious. There are no bad words in that title. Being that this is listed in the non profit category I assumed this was for some charity event. Oh who am I kidding?
I have been following Team Boobylicious in some way over the past 3 years. This year, I just happen to be following them on their own blog. Team Boobylicious is a team of women and men who will be participating in the 3-Day Walk in Minneapolis. This year the twin cities walk takes place August 24-26, 2007.
For those of you who are unaware of what the 3 day is about here is a brief run down. A lot of people around the country on different weekends will assemble and walk 60 miles. The entire purpose is to raise money for and awareness about breast cancer. I am sure by now we all either know someone who has had a form of cancer or know someone else who knows someone. This is probably one of the largest fund raising events of its kind.
As I said, I have been following their progress for a while now and this year I have the benefit of a website. Team Boobylicious is not your average run of the mill fund raiser. They start out raising money all the way back as far as December with making christmas cookies that you can buy. Then in February they get on the truffle making machine and that just starts the ball rolling. This year they have had trivia night with some seriously awesome prizes being donated to give away. And I am sure there is more to come.
As of writing this, the
1418 members have raised over $9,600. I know each team member has their own goals and what not, but that still is an impressive number considering how far out they still are. There will be plenty of events that Team Boobylicious will be holding between now and then, but if you just feel like donating to help them out you can here.
Each year I make a contribution and this year is no different. In fact I am issuing a challenge to the readers of The Weblog Review. For each person that donates to our own resident Wendy’s goal between now and July 31st, I will donate an extra $5 per person up to an additional $200. All you have to do is forward me your donation email and I will make an extra donation this year. If we get more than 40 people from here who donate, you will probably inspire me to donate more so please, help a wonderful cause out.NULL
