On August 5-7, fellow Copyblogger Media partner Brian Gardner (founder of StudioPress) and his wife Shelly will be walking 60 miles in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for The Cure in Chicago.
This is Brian’s tenth year walking, and in that time he’s raised more than $60,000 to fight breast cancer. And he’s not even close to being finished.
You might not be able to join Brian and Shelly in Chicago for their three-day odyssey. But there is a way you can join us in spirit …
As friends and colleagues, we’re helping Brian and Shelly with their fundraising for this event. The money we raise goes to innovative global breast cancer research and local community programs supporting education, screening, and treatment.
You can be part of our effort by pledging your support today.
Komen for the Cure is the world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all, and energize science to find the cures.
Thanks to events like the 3-Day for the Cure, the organization has invested more than $1.9 billion to become the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world. Every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 28 years has been impacted by a Susan G. Komen for the Cure grant.
Yes, there are many other worthy causes out there. But Brian and Shelly walk every year to honor Shelly’s aunt and grandmother, who are both survivors … and we’re right there with them.
Here’s how you can help (and what you get…)
Make a direct online pledge through either Brian’s or Shelly’s Komen for the Cure page (your choice):
Any amount is appreciated, but as you know, higher amounts bring extra good karma.
In this case — with any donation of $150.00 (USD) or more — karma looks like a FREE membership to the home study version of our virtual conference, Authority Rules (a $297 value).
If you missed getting in on the inaugural Authority Rules conference back in May, now is your chance to fight breast cancer and learn how to become the “likable expert” of your industry, so you never have to prospect or advertise again.
With over 18 hours of exceptional webinar instruction (plus PDF transcriptions) from me, Brian Clark, David Meerman Scott, Michael Port, Bryan Eisenberg, John Jantsch, Lee Odden, Chris Garrett, Chris Brogan, Brian Gardner, Tony Clark, Amber Naslund, Jeff Sexton, Derek Halpern, Pam Slim and Darren Rowse … this is about as good as karma gets ;).
All you have to do is pledge $150 or more, and copy and paste your confirmation email in the message field here. We’ll set you up with the full 18 hours of Authority Rules’ webinars and transcripts.
Here are those pledge pages again:
Thank you in advance for your help!
I’d also like to thank the WordPress community and all of Copyblogger Media’s many customers. It’s because of all of you that we’re able to support worthy causes like the battle against breast cancer. We’re so grateful for each and every one of you.
