If you are on Facebook or Twitter, I hope that by now you've heard about the Susan G. Komen For the Cure #FightBreastCancer initiative. Beginning September 30, at midnight (EST) to midnight October 1, they are kicking off Breast Cancer Awareness Month by asking everyone to visit www.69-seconds.org and sign their petition.
Additionally, they've included several statistics that can be used to update your Facebook/Twitter status or blog. On Facebook and Twitter make sure to include the hashtag #fightbreastcancer. The goal is to promote awareness. Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another, all it takes is a moment to make a further increase awareness about this dreadful disease. Will you do your part?
Here's more information about the initiative...
Why 69 seconds?
Because that’s how often a woman dies of breast cancer somewhere in the world. A statistic we’re trying to change. It’s also about how long it takes to #fightbreastcancer by choosing to drive change, share support or educate at www.69-seconds.org.
We hope to mobilize millions to take 69 seconds to #fightbreastcancer AND break the Guinness World Record for Most Widespread Social Network Message in 24 Hours.
