Help raise funds for Breast Cancer Research

As was the case last year, from here on to December 31st I will donate the proceeds of my Amazon Associates Programs to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Which means that simply by doing your Holiday shopping online at Amazon you can support this great cause!

So if you want to help, all you need to do is click on any of my Amazon links (the Canada, USA, Europe links you see in various posts) and purchase your stuff from there. It doesn't matter if you wish to buy that particular novel or not. As soon as you click on those links, you're good to go!:-) So whether you're shopping for books, DVDs, CDs, a computer, toys, video games, yada yada yada, old and new, every purchase you make will help raise funds to find a cure for Breast Cancer. You don't need to spend more, to donate any of your hard-earned dough, or to do anything special to support this worthy cause. Simply click on a link before buying whatever it is you want.

Though I hate to set an objective, for fear of being disappointed, I'm still gunning for 500$ this year. Yes, that's a lot more than the 115$ we raised last year, but the Hotlist is more popular now than it was at the same time in 2007. And if only half of the people who stop by actually lends a hand, then this should be a piece of cake! Some have suggested that I set up a foundation, but I don't feel comfortable asking money from people. By donating the proceeds of the Amazon Associate Program, you shop as you normally do, save with the Amazon discounts, and help raise some much-needed funds for Breast Cancer Research at the same time.

Two of the hottest items being pre-ordered right now are:

J. K. Rowling's The Tales of Beedle Bard (Canada, USA, Europe)

The latest Batman flick, The Dark Knight (Canada, USA, Europe)

So if you are considering purchasing any of these, please do so via the links!:-)

Many thanks to those who supported the cause last year, and thanks in advance to all of you who will do so in the new few weeks! And if you have a website or a blog, or if you are the admin of a forum and you wish to help spread the word about this, feel free to do so!;-)

This is a great idea and definitely something I will keep in mind! Also, a good reminder that I need to preorder Tales of Beedle The Bard soon!

Very nice. Not sure if its your thing, but you might want to mention that Patrick Rothfuss is also holding a fundraiser where he is matching matching all donations. Over 16k has already been raised. He is giving away some great gifts also.

Maybe if enough people donate and bankrupt the guy, it will light a fire under his ass to deliver book 2 :)
