That's a wrap!
I'm pleased to announce that we have now officially wrapped the 2003 Boobie-Thon. Our final donation totals were a whopping $7045.45 raised since October 1st -- with $6686.45 going directly to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. The remaining $359.00 went to the "Run For Their Lives - PAWS Chicago 8K" as the bloggers helping bloggers portion of the Boobie-Thon.
So what happens next? Well I received quite a few e-check payments today, so those have to clear first. PayPal says this usually takes 4-5 business days, which will put it roughly on October 17, 2003. After that, I have to transfer the total PayPal funds to my bank account. PayPal says this usually takes 2-3 business days. Hopefully by October 22, 2003, all funds will have cleared the necessary channels and I can send a cashier's check to Susan G. Komen. Just like last year, I will update this blog every step of the way so that you can follow my progress. And of course when received, I will post the official donation letter from Komen just like I did in 2002.
Thanks so much to everyone who's linked, sent photos, and donated to the cause this year. Look for us to be back in 2004! -Robyn
UPDATE: Don't forget to click here each day to fund free mammograms from thebreastcancersite.com! "Each year, 182,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer and 43,300 die. One woman in eight either has or will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. In addition, 1,600 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 400 will die this year."

One suggestion for next year...try to come up with a system that lets us help you more. We didn't like tiring you out, even if it was for a good cause. :(
Whooo hooo! Nice work!!

I just can't believe you raised over $7K in 11 days. That's friggin' amazing!
Big congrats Robyn, and a giant thank you to everyone who donated money and the easy bit, getting horny, taking nudie photos of yourself and sending them in :)
I feel very good about being a part of this again, and so should everyone else who posed and donated.

Robyn, I'm in awe at how wonderful this event turned out. Congratulations on a job very well done! I'd like to be even more help next year if possible, since you'll have a wee one running around and all. :) I'm so happy to have been even a small part of this year's amazing event. Great idea, great work, great success from a great lady. :) WTG!
