Default Women everywhere need you.......

I have just read this on another forum, and considering it is a forum of 98% male blooded human beings, would seem that it is genuine....

The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on "donating a mammogram" for free (pink window in the middle). This doesn't cost you a thing. Their corporate sponsors/advertisers use the number of daily visits to donate mammogram in exchange for advertising. Here's the web site! Pass it along to people you know http://www.thebreastcancersite.com/


Go on, click on it today, I have

Hang on. So if it someting is posted on a 'blokes' site it is more likely to be true than if it was on a women's site??

("Look we've got the cash, so we could save a life, but well you see we only registered 9,999 hits and we agreed 10,000")

Men feel the loss of a loved one due to breast cancer as strongly as women do.

Unless I read it wrong, is it not that if you ''purchase'' something from the site then they will donate ???

And yes there is no difference between the feeling of men and women re the loss of someone through breast cancer, I guess it stirs up greater fear in the woman though just like men when they here of someone with tescular cancer

We can (men) get breast cancer too.

I just thought that sometimes there is a lot of skepticism on these sort of threads, and yes it was worded wrong, but if the Breast Cancer Site is claiming to fund vital equipment through people hitting their site, well worth a minute flirt away from these message boards. I suppose it is done by the links afterwards where possibly 1 in 5 people will purchase something, then funding the donations

Those sites are legit & have been going for years. The money is raised from advertising. The sponsors pay a very small donation for every 'click'.
