Breasts... They Need Your Support!
With National Breast Cancer Month (October) upon us (http://www.nbcam.org/), we want to throw our support behind some great organizations that are helping those patients, survivors, families and others that have been affected by this disease.
This Shoot Out photo contest is intended, mirroring the goal of NBCAM, to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.
Enter your images that promote breast cancer awareness and/or celebrate the beauty, strength, spirit and nurture threatened by the disease. Enter your images that tell a story of inspiration, of strength, of survival. Enter your images that are touching, humorous, sensual, perceptive... real.
We want to really make a splash. We've got lofty goals for this contest and would love to see the total raised get OVER $100,000. To do this, WE NEED YOUR HELP! We need everyone to get the word out... share this on Facebook, Twitter, via email. Tell your friends, your neighbors, your clients, your kids' friends... everyone.
The 'starting pot' will be $100 in total, but we want to see a truly inspiring number here. So help us get these numbers growing! Help us demonstrate the power of images to help raise awareness and money to make a difference!
We'll be updating the prizing as the entries come in, so check back... and enter as often as you can! You're supporting a great cause!
Remember, a portion of the proceeds from your entry fees will be donated to these fine charities to help in the ongoing battle against this disease:
Susan G. Komen for the Cure, Breastcancer.org, and Standup2cancer (su2c) - you can also visit these links directly to learn more and/or donate.
Once the contest has closed and winners have been announced, the cash prizes will be awarded and the donations paid to the 3 charities.
