October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which means it’s time for DietsInReview.com’s third annual Blogs Against Breast Cancer donation drive. During the month of October, when you publish this “My Blog Cares” badge on your blog or website, we’ll make a $5 donation to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Our fundraising goal is $500*, and this year, VML, a digital marketing agency, has generously agreed to match that amount. For each $5 donation you help us contribute to NBCF, VML will donate $5. So you can help us raise $10 for breast cancer simply by placing this badge on your blog. It’s a win-win-win-win… you get the idea!
To participate follow these three simple steps:
1A. Copy this code for the 125×125 badge
1B. Copy this code for the 300×123 badge
2. Place the HTML on your blog or website
3. Contact us here with a link to where your My Blog Cares badge is placed
