Help Carl’s Cause: Breast Cancer Awareness Within The Blogosphere

We have all been touched by cancer, somewhere in our lives, please visit the site below.

I think a link on your blog or an email to your friends would be an appropriate way to spread the word. It is a very important cause. Won’t you help?

Visit the website.

Carl at Confessions of an Executive Restuarant Recruiter is doing something we should all consider – using our blogosphere platforms to bring attention to good causes. His M&M’s Campaign to broaden Breast Cancer Awareness is one I share and I invite you to consider broadening the level of attention to it. In addition, I strongly encourage all Six Degrees loyalists to visit the most snazzy visual experience a recruitment blog can offer, not to mention excellent content at “Confessions…” blog site.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and to commemorate, we’ve created a special pack of M&M’S® Chocolate Candies. Each time you buy one of the specially marked bags, we’ll make a donation* to The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. Help support breast cancer research and outreach programs while satisfying your sweet tooth!

Carl got the idea that he could promote the issue even better if fellow bloggers shared in bringing attention to the issue. “I mean, I have thousands… no wait… hundreds… er… ok maybe dozens of viewers on a weekly basis and I could make a post that would inform them all of this wonderful idea. Then they could tell others, and so on. Then it hit me that if we got the article posted to recruiting.com and exposed it in the recruiting blogosphere… well then more than a few dozen people would be exposed to the idea and it would happen before Halloween (traditionally the largest candy buying season of the entire year) so the promotion should explode with purchasers… all driven by the altruistic nature of the blogger nation.”

Carl emphasizes the point further, “After all, how important can a post promoting an easy way to donate money to Breast Cancer research be when the pundits of the recruiting blog world can be cross posting about recruiting.com V 2.0 and how bad it is, or cutting down Monster’s executives, or acting envious of someone else’s Internet property. Heck we have poker to discuss or ‘transparency’ or some equally important ’stuff.’”

Well stated Carl.

If you run a blog or write for a blog, please make a post about Pink M&Ms right away, before Halloween. Someone you care about very much may be saved because of it. We have all been touched by cancer, somewhere in our lives, please visit the site below.

I encourage you to add a link on your blog or an email to your friends as an appropriate way to spread the word. Won’t you help Carl, or more importantly a sister or mother of someone who loves them enough to care about there future?
