Tickle Me Pink Tuesday

I am absolutley tickled by the email and video that my BFC sent me yesterday. She asked me to post this and what my BFC asks for, she gets!

This wasn't a hard request to fill since as you know I am HUGE proponent of breast cancer research and the causes that go with it. This post here might remind you of how it has touched my own life and why it is so important to me.

I've snoped the email and find it to be valid:
Here’s the story behind the video…

“Our daughter-in-law, Emily (MacInnes) Somers, created, directed and choreographed this in Portland last week for her Medline glove division as a fundraiser for breast cancer awareness. This was all her idea to help promote their new pink gloves.

I don't know how she got so many employees, doctors and patients to participate, but it started to really catch on and they all had a lot of fun doing it.

When the video gets 1 million hits, Medline will be making a huge contribution to the hospital, as well as offering free mammograms for the community. Please check it out. It's an easy and great way to donate to a wonderful cause, and who hasn't been touched by breast cancer?

Throw something pink on, turn the volume up and dance along -it's super fun and I love watching the people who clearly are out of their comfort zone dancing. BUT they did it anyway, knowing it was for a good cause!

Or you can go here for the YouTube hit.

And since it's a new month, have you done your check? If not, get on it! Give those ta-ta's a good once over!

I absolutely loved the video. Went on through YouTube so they got the credit and then posted it to my Facebook account and linked it in an email to all my family and friends. That should bump up thier numbers a little bit. Thanks for the heads up.

That was awesome!

I haven't checked mine yet this month. I was hoping I'd get a better offer first.
