"OH MY DARLING, WHY DID YOU CHANGE?"


For the month of October, Bigmouth is going pink for breast cancer awareness month. As many of you might remember, it's a big issue to me, in small part because of a scare I had over the summer, the second scare I had over the summer, and largely because some monumentally important people to me have been impacted by breast cancer, either personally or second-hand. And because, let's not kid ourselves, breast cancer is everyone's problem. Anyway, last year, a blogger I know tricked out her blog and made it pink and I thought it was such a great idea that I thought I'd start doing the same when October comes a-knockin'.

Every post, I'll stick a little reminder to click through to The Breast Cancer Site because you can click through every single day and click a button and doing so helps fund mammography for women who need it and cannot otherwise afford it.

Also, everyday until I do the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event on October 21st, I'll provide a link so you can fork over a buck or two for the fundraising effort, if you are so inclined. Which I hope you are. For those of you darlings who have already donated, thank you, thank you, thank you. We've raised almost $1,200! So now, I want to reach the new goal of $2,500. We can totally do that!

And, and, and I'll be featuring cool products and programs that are not only great but also give a portion of proceeds to fund breast cancer charities, like Yoplait yogurt's Save Lids To Save Lives program or KitchenAid's Cook for the Cure products, to make it super-easy for you to be menschy.

That's what I got, that's all I know.

I love it! I think it's Tits to the Tenth, diva. Last year I did boobiethon. I must figure out what I want to do and fast. It's the first. (Say those last two sentences in a Wisconsin accent, thank you)
