    Hot on the heels of the inaugural oneWorld MegaDO that raised an unprecedented amount for the Susan G. Komen Foundation (see the $50k check), we would like to continue that giving spirit. Trying to maximize the impact of milepoint member Sagy's raffle prize (a pink Susan G. Komen apron), Sagy, COGlobetrotter, zphelj and vapid came up the following idea:
    1. Sagy travels the world with his pink Susan G. Komen apron, taking as many pictures as possible with women wearing said apron. Those pictures will be posted here.
    2. Milepoint members pledge to contribute a set amount to Susan G. Komen for each photo posted. Celebrities (as deemed by us) count double!
    3. As we hit certain milestones, members will send those donations directly to the charity and report back here.
    To keep things simple, we'll have members send their contributions directly via the Susan G. Komen website. You can actually earn AAdvantage Miles for your donation via the Miles for the Cure program.

    There is 100% match available if you email Sagy the receipts. It would be helpful, but not mandatory, if some mention of Sagy or this effort is on the receipts. Please email these to sgk4cure at sagy dot net (the email is also good for Planned Parenthood donations and they will be matched as well).

    The photos will be posted in a separate thread in order to keep things a bit more organized. This thread will be used for status, pledges and discussion. We will track the photo counts, pledges, total raised, etc. in one of the first few posts so that there is an easy overview.

    I've got about 10~ photos that we took at LAX and on the flight to ORD. Once we have a thread for the pics, I'll start to upload them.

    .25 per picture. Sorry. Not enough sleep lately for some reason. I witnessed many of the shots the first couple of days, and this is going to be epic. Sagy's success rate when asking for pictures has been phenomenal.

    Sagy -

    I think your idea to raise funds in this manner is brilliant and innovative. Perhaps it will also be trendsetting. I wish you every success.

    Be well,
    - Joe

    OK, I'm in for the .25 cents per picture. However, I will double that to .50 cents per picture for every photo in which Sagy is wearing the apron.

    Just have to go and make the tallying job harder eh? ;)

    I think it does distract Sagy from putting that apron on all the lovely ladies he'll be meeting...now all they have to do is pose instead of participating!

    You know me better than that. I have my priorities right ;). When possible I will pull the double duty for the cause, otherwise it is ladies first...:D

    Now if we could only get AA and PP together so that we’d get miles for the donation as is the case with Komen. :rolleyes:
