The first nail-focused beauty blog

Comments For A Cure 2010 Starts TODAY

bbn_cure_forweb As a woman, a daughter and a friend I am taking a stand for Breast Cancer Awareness by supporting Living Beyond Breast Cancer with my annual Comments For A Cure campaign.

Comments For A Cure started out in 2007 as a grassroots effort to support a fellow Beauty Blog Network member who was diagnosed with cancer.  I have taken it upon myself to continue supporting the cause here on ALU.

All Lacquered Up’s Comments For A Cure campaign launches TODAY, October 20th, 2010.

Please join me in the fight against breast cancer by leaving a comment on any post on All Lacquered Up today through Friday, October 22nd. Every comment will raise $1 for Living Beyond Breast Cancer up to a maximum of $150. That’s right, you leave a comment, I donate. What could be easier?

Also, don’t forget about all the amazing prizes you could win in the Think Pink – Donate & Win Giveaway.  I’m so amazed by the immense generosity of the ALU community as we’ve already raised over $1400!! That’s almost DOUBLE last year’s donation.  Thank you all for your continued support.  I love you all!

    Michelle, I’ve been following ALU for a couple months now and I am a full blown fanatic! I’ve bought at least 1 polish a week (and often 3 or 4) since I found your blog. I can’t stop! Thanks so much for your insight, swatches and charming posts.

    This is my first post and what better way to say, “You Go Girl!” Your support for Breast Cancer Awareness let’s me know how much more fabulous you are!

    Random fact; This October 2010 has 5 Fridays, 5 Saturdays and 5 Sundays… Something that only happens once every 823 years! So with that, Happy BCA month!

  62. Sandy says:

    This is wonderful! This is for my Aunts and Grandmother who survived and my girlfriend who was diagnosed in February 2010, had surgery and treatment and now back at work full-time. She was one of the fortunate one ones who even she keep up with all her yearly mammographies to the date and as small as it was, it was still in Stage 2 but prognosis is excellent for full recovery. Now even though my mammography came back normal, my physician wants me to have a diagnostic because of density in one breast. So this really hits close to home! Thanks so much!
