As a proud member of the Beauty Blog Network, I am taking a stand with my fellow beauty bloggers in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month to support cancer charities through Comments 4 A Cure.
All Lacquered Up’s Comments 4 A Cure campaign launches TODAY, October 22.
Please join me in the fight against breast cancer by leaving comments on any post on All Lacquered Up today through Friday, October 24th. Every comment will raise $1 for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation up to a maximum of $150. That’s right, you leave a comment, I donate funds. What could be easier?
Also please take a moment to visit my fellow Beauty Blog Network partners to support their BCA efforts.
And don’t forget about the Think Pink – Donate & Win giveaway. By supporting breast cancer research, you also get a chance to win a $300+ nail polish prize pack.
Founded in June 2007, Comments For A Cure raises funds for cancer research and awareness. We come together as a community to help fight cancer and show support for our fellow bloggers, families and friends who have been affected by cancer.
How it works: Over a three day period, participating BBN bloggers will donate to their selected cancer charity based on the comments they receive from readers like you. On behalf of All Lacquered Up, I will be donating to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. From October 22-24, I will donate $1 per comment received, on any ALU post, up to a maximum of $150.
Visit each participating blog (listed below) for their selected dates and charities.
What can you do? Come back to All Lacquered Up to read reviews of the “pink” products I’ll be sharing throughout the month.

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.
