As a proud member of the Beauty Blog Network, I am taking a stand with my fellow beauty bloggers to raise cancer awareness through Comments 4 A Cure.
a message from Beauty Blog Network founder, Elke Von Freudenberg
The Beauty Blog Network is more than just a great group of beauty blogs. It also is a group of bloggers, that support and encourage one another.
At no other time is this more apparent than right now. After hearing that a few of our Network members are currently dealing with the news that they have cancer, our Network decided to join together and take a stand.
We are joining together as a group to contribute and donate to cancer charities as an effort to show awareness and to help.
I hope you will join us. As they say, beauty is not just skin deep…This will truly be a contribution from our hearts…
June 4-6th, 2007 - On these dates, all participating network blogs will be writing a blog post for â€œComments for a Cancer Cureâ€. The amount of comments posted during these days, will count towards the dollar amount that will be donated to the cancer charity of their choice.
The charity I chose to support is the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation. The Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation identifies and supports extraordinary young scientists across the nation who are committed to discovering the causes and cures for cancer.
In addition to the money raised during the comment weekend, on June 10th there will be charity auctions held on eBay through Mission Fish including a Beauty Goodie Bag Auction loaded with beauty products generously donated by our PR and beauty contacts. To see a list of what is included, visit the Comments4ACure website.
All Lacquered Up is auctioning a nail fanatic’s gift basket filled with the hottest polishes from this year’s collections and an assortment our favorite nail treatments and accessories. Pictures and links to this auction will be posted closer to the launch date.
I hope you all will join me and my fellow beauty bloggers in supporting this worthy cause. If you’d like to make a donation you can use the Chip In form, located on the right sidebar under the Comments4ACure badge.
