I received the official donation letter from Susan G. Komen in the mail today. This concludes the accounting updates to the 2003 Boobie-Thon. Thanks again for everyone's help, support and donations!

Hey, Mr. Postman
I received the return-receipt back confirming that Komen received the cashier's check I sent to them on October 23, 2003. (Click below for larger pop-up.) I'll update the site again once I actually have something from Komen themselves.

A quick update on this entry. I was contacted by SELF Magazine again yesterday. Here's part of the note:
SELF magazine would like to recognize you (and your Boobiethon) in the February issue for being a promoter of positive body image in women. In addition to raising money for a good cause, your charity sends the message that you don't have to have a porn star body to be proud of it.
I'd like to get a few quotes from you on body image for the story.
<snip of list of interview questions>
That should do it. If you'd prefer to discuss this over the phone, please give me at call at <snip of phone number>. Otherwise, I'll look for an email from you in the next day or two.
Thanks and congrats,
Sr. Staff Writer
Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the February 2004 issue!

Earlier today I was able to get -- and send -- a cashier's check to Susan G. Komen via U.S. certified mail with return receipt for $6686.45. You can see the proof below (click for larger pop-ups). I'll update the site again when I get confirmation it's been received! Thanks again everyone! -Robyn
UPDATE: The return-receipt came back confirming Komen received the cashier's check!

Where's your cash at?
Today the final e-check payments I received cleared, and I was able to move $6433.49 from my PayPal account into my bank account. This transfer could take up to 2-3 business days, so I expect it to be there by next Wednesday.
Now you might notice that even though we raised $6686.45, I only moved over the total balance in my PayPal account of $6433.49. This is because PayPal requires you to upgrade to its premier account in order to process credit card payments. By doing so, each credit card donation had an amount automatically deducted by PayPal (2.9%+ $0.30 USD) before I ever saw it in my PayPal account. However, I posted the full amount of each donation on the donations page. Then at the end of the Boobie-Thon (as my husband and I also did last year), we donate the total amount that PayPal has deducted to "break even" and give Komen the published / donated amount on the site.
This year, we will be donating an additional $252.96 out of pocket -- so when that amount is added to the amount transferred of $6433.49 -- this will bring us to a cashier's check mailed next week for a total of $6686.45.
I will update the site again once payment has been mailed to Komen.

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."

Thirteen new boobie pics are up on the photos page (including two of a very important pair, and another reason we're doing this again this year) -- as well as five new man-rack pics. And there are two new pics up on the "pay-per-boobie" site. That makes over 75 photos on that page now!
Submissions and donations end at 11:59 p.m. EDT tonight -- about 90 minutes away! Hop to it!

I'd have to say it was a good day.
I'm back now and just got all of the day's donations recorded. I'll be working through all of the remaining photos submitted here in a bit. We're down to T-minus three hours and counting 'til this thing wraps up. Thanks to everyone for their help and support this year! Stay tuned...more updates to follow shortly...

Go OU - beat the helloutta texas!
All submissions and donations made after this posting will be added to the site tomorrow.
Please keep in mind that Saturday is a religious holiday for Sooner fans, as OU takes on the 'whorns in the Cotton Bowl. I obviously will be nowhere near my computer during this time. So hang tight -- we'll wrap this sucker up in style tomorrow night. That means if you've been slow getting your photos in, or have a few more to submit to add to the others you've sent, you'd better get to it! Catch ya' later... Boomer Sooner!

The day after the night before
Well I just didn't get accomplished today what I had hoped to -- I do apologize. I'm finally caught up on contacting donors and getting participant URLs online. All previously published photo communication is up to date. I only added one new photo to the photos page tonight -- but it's a great one! Unless of course you're a Yankees fan...
I have 28 e-mails with photo attachments to wade through tomorrow, so don't go away just yet. I'm getting my sea legs again and hopefully soon we'll be back to your regularly scheduled boobage. Thanks everyone.
P.S. Looks like the Boobie-Thon made it on Houston's 94.5, The Buzz. Boomer Sooner!

Happy "hump day"
A few announcements as I start my day online... First of all, the greatest hosting company in the world was sneaky and purchased the domain boobiethon.com for the site, to use now (and in the future). So huge thanks to them!
I finally have the donors pages caught up to speed. We've now raised over $5K for Komen alone -- that's over quadruple what we sent them last year!
I've started wading through the backlog of photo submissions and URL requests (since I took the evening off yesterday), and have 10 new boobie pics on the photos page. That will be slow-going this afternoon as I have an appointment here in a bit. I'll try to get back on them in the early evening. Please be patient!

I should note that we cracked the $4K mark in total donations this evening. You guys rock! Thanks again!

"...A photo of my RACK is posted on this page. If you guess correctly which photo is of me I will send you a printed/signed and personalized version or a personalized fansign version. I will be giving out NO clues. Comment here with your final guess or email me. I will take final guesses until Sunday night (10/4) 8:00 PM CST (2:00 AM UK) Correct answer will be posted here at that time. FIRST correct answer will have $10.00 donated in their name with their site/journal/blog linked on the donor page..."

When I originally launched this project, I intended for it to run the entire month of October (during Breast Cancer Awareness Month). However, I never expected it to take on the magnitude and scope that it has this year. I am not complaining, don't get me wrong. What we've managed to accomplish since October 1st has been simply amazing.
However, it has become a full-time job since Wednesday taking donations, editing photos, and updating the site continually. There is just no way with real life -- and real work -- to also be done, that I can continue at this pace for 31 straight days. (This doesn't even take into account that I'm also pregnant right now, and energy is in very short supply.)
So after much careful and thoughtful consideration overnight, I have decided that we will wrap donations and submissions a week from today -- Saturday, October 11th at 11:59 p.m. EDT. We're already on pace to more than double what we earned last year, and I think that's something we can all be proud of.
I hope everyone can understand and respect my decision. It was not one I made lightly -- I had to take into account what is best for myself (and my family). Thank you so much for your continued support! Let's make this final week ahead one that won't be soon forgotten!

Five hundred big ones
This deserves a very special announcement. I now take back every bad curse word I have uttered in FARK's name today. Because Drew himself just PayPal'ed a donation in -- in the amount of $500.00. Yes, "holy fucking shit" was exclaimed. I am in awe. I should mention that I'm a proud member of TotalFark and ATPTB has long had its own FARK category. I have absolutely nothing against FARK itself -- it's just been a long day.
So yeah, I hope not to embarass Drew -- but I also wanted others to see that is'not all bad. THANK YOU!

Another Boobie-Thon related contest out there to pass along...
"I'm having a contest, to see who can spot my boobies first.
1. The first person to correctly identify my boobies on the Photos page will get $20 donated to The Blogger Boobie-Thon in their name.
2. Everyone who correctly identifies my "free" boobies will get a picture of me, waist-up, including my face, similarly attired to the "Free Boobie" picture I sent in.
3. The first person to correctly identify my fully-exposed boobies, on the Pay-Per-Boobie page ($50 donation required), will get $50 donated to the Blogger Boobie-Thon in their name.
4. Everyone who correctly identifies my fully-exposed boobies on the Pay-Per-Boobie page will get a picture of me, waist-up, including my face, wearing nothing but a smile (and maybe a little make-up and/or hair product... I'll let you dictate the photo session to that extent!)..."

I swear...you try to do a little nice in this world... My host is currently having to deal with Denial of Service attacks across all servers because of this.
Nevermind they've already been working around the clock today going above and beyond the call of duty to make sure things run as smoothly as humanly possible in order to keep the site online, now they have to deal with the following as well:
"We are currently battling what amounts to a DOS attack that appears to have grown from a listing at FARK for a domain hosted on boreas earlier. This is creating some significant issues with lags to all servers. Please be patient as we work to deflect this and return to our normal traffic patterns."
That just isn't right. This is a charity drive they're going after. Yes, FARK URLs were blocked from this URL -- but did it really warrant this? Or the call in the forums for someone to donate $50.00 so that they can post the passwords for the pay-per-boobie site as revenge? Grow up people. What goes around, comes around.
Anyone know how I can PayPal my host a beer...or twelve? I'm terribly sorry you're having to deal with this! -Robyn

Please continue to hold...
Well that was fun. If you've noticed the site suddenly running as slow-ass as molasses this afternoon, that's because we got FARKed. Now last year, when this happened (and we got 75,000 hits in the first hour alone from FARK) my host was able to swoop in and correct the problem within minutes. They were on top of things instantly this year but I guess the load was just too heavy.
So rather than take the site down, I put in an .htaccess file to redirect the FARK traffic straight to komen.org. With comments like this -- I'm not so sure they'll miss us (or even bother to donate) anyway:
"Problem with this is, most female bloggers I've ever known have the sort of breasts you want breast cancer to take away. We're computer nerds, for Christ's sake, there's a reason we surf for supermodels."
Hence the problem of giving 14-year olds internet access in mom's basement. So hopefully now we're back to your regularly scheduled programming... Good thing I pay extra for unlimited bandwidth each month!

A couple of announcements before I really get started for the day...
Most importantly, since the photos page was getting so large, I went ahead and had pity for those on dial-up and busted it up some. The most recent submissions will still appear here -- while the full set of photo submissions will appear here. I've made a separate announcement to that effect on the photos page, and added two reminder banners at the top and bottom of the most recent images. So if you're new here, and want to see 'em all -- don't forget to hit the full-entries page.
I still have a lot of submissions to process from overnight, but I have got four new photo submissions up already today -- including, by far, the most important photograph we've had up yet. Go check it out! These new additions also include two wet t-shirt photographs.
Our current donation totals as of this entry stand at $1951.00 -- with a whopping $1592.00 going to Komen now! Let's see if we can't hit the $2K mark in total donations by the end of the day... Stay tuned. More photos will be put up after I "do lunch". Happy Friday!

Lots of updates before I wrap things up for the night...
First things first -- we have now exceeded our total donations for the Boobie-Thon 2002. Last year we earned $1610.00 total and sent $1251.00 to Komen. In just two days this year, we've already raised a whopping
$1670.00 $1721.00 -- and currently $1311.00 $1362.00 will be going to Komen! So pat yourselves on the backs. I couldn't have done this without ALL of you!
Next -- I've added eighteen new boobie images to the photos page this evening, and one new man-rack. I've also added one new image to the "pay-per-boobie" page.
And lastly -- any photos and donations submitted after this posting will go up tomorrow. Thanks again everyone -- and please make sure to check back for what promises to be a very interesting weekend around here! -Robyn

Someone has already started a little contest for the Boobie-Thon photos -- the theme is "sexiest navel".
"I am hereby going to pledge to give $20 for each one to get 5 (five) votes prior to noon on October 2, 2003. So get busy and start voting...And of course, if all three get 5 votes, then my donation will qualify me to go view the pay-per-boobie page."

The photos page has three new images and the "pay-per-boobies" page has two new ones. Go have a look-see -- or donate so you can if you haven't given $50.00 or more for the pay-site yet.
Any photos and donations submitted after this posting will go up tomorrow. I've been at this about 11 hours now and I need a break from my inbox. Huge thanks and kudos to everyone who's linked, donated, and participated! It completely amazes me that in less than one day, we've raised almost half of the entire Boobie-Thon take from last year!

This means that everything raised from this point on (currently at $326.00 → $685.00 - 359.00 = $326.00) through the end of the month will be going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Thanks to everyone for your support today! Don't forget the Boobie-Thon lasts throughout the month of October, so keep on linking, sending photos, and donating as you can!

We have our first male-rack submission! Also, we're now at $375.00 total donations, meaning everything donated from this point on goes directly to Susan G. Komen! One payment is uncleared, so I can't PayPal the $359.00 to "Run For Their Lives - PAWS Chicago 8K" just yet -- but I will put up a note here the instant I get more donations and am able to do so. C'mon...give 'til it hurts!

Insert witty title here

Three Five new photos are up on the photos page -- as well as three new photos up on the "pay-per-boobie" page. Send 'em in -- and go here for ideas on being creative.
It's gettin' hot in here
Three new photos were just added to the photos page. We've already raised
$105.00 $375.00 overnight -- not bad at'all! Thanks to everyone who's donated thus far. And keep 'em coming (donations and photos)!
Don't forget...you can get "creative" with your photo entries... Last year we had wet t-shirt style pics, creative use of food products, pretty things to unwrap, and even a little festivity. Use your imaginations!

5...4...3...2...1... And liftoff!
The photos page is now live with the first round of photos submitted. (Photos are accepted through 10/11.) And don't forget that we also have a private, passworded pay-per-boobie site with bare-boobie photos already set up for donors of $50.00 or more. So what you see isn't all of what you (might) get -- we have a high-rollers club!
We appreciate you stopping by this year's Boobie-Thon, and thanks so much for your donation! Please accept our sincerest thank you's...

Show me the money!
Just a quick update note about exactly where your donations will be going, since I've seen a few entries stating what we'll raise is going to "Run For Their Lives - PAWS Chicago 8K". Actually, that's just the "bloggers helping bloggers" portion of the Boobie-Thon -- and (assuming we raise that much) only $359.00 total will be going towards PAWS. Everything we raise beyond that point will be going to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation since October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
We were able to send Susan G. Komen $1251.00 last year -- click here to see official donation letter. Let's see if we can't top that this year, ok? Only one more day 'til this all officially kicks off! (Link buttons here.) And...exhale...
By the way, have you funded your free mammogram today? Just click here to do so!

I was asked if the Boobie-Thon will be having RSS feeds. Just added 'em:
- RSS 2.0 Feed
- RSS 2.0 Feed with Comments
- RSS 1.0 Feed
Please note these feeds will not include the entries with photos when they become available. Rather I will make an announcement on this main updates page that photos have been added, with a link to them.
Also, if you'd like to Blogroll the site -- just click here. We'll be pinging weblogs.com and Blogrolling.com.

Steal this button
I've had several requests for buttons and mini-banners to link to this year's Boobie-Thon. Here are a few to start with. Please also feel free to create your own (and then link them in the comments). Thanks!

All for the cause
Assuming at least this much is raised, the official blogger charity -- and recipient of $359 in this year's Boobie-Thon -- has been announced. It's the "Run For Their Lives - PAWS Chicago 8K". You can find more details on how this charity was selected here. All additional proceeds raised this year will go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
And photo submissions for the contest launch on 10/1 are now being accepted. Please submit your photo to Robyn ASAP. Thanks!
