each one reach one

  1. The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting
    enough people to visit it in order to meet their
    quota of donating free mammograms each day to
    underprivileged women. It takes less than a
    minute to go to their site & click on "donating a
    mammogram" (pink window in the middle).

    Their corporate sponsors donate mammograms
    based upon the number of daily visits to the site.
    Here is the website URL.

    Visited. Clicked.

    Also posted URL on a Bookworm Community site I frequent.

    I realise "underpriveleged"is a relative concept, but how likely is it that such women would have web access? I support the intent, but wonder about the delivery of the message, like leafletting the blind, or paging the deaf.

    My take on it was that the women recieving the mammograms do not have to log in and ask for one, that they would be provided through a local organization to women in the community who are recieving some other form of aid.

    As always, I could be wrong.

    I'm with your take on things, nurseleigh. Corporate donations are made to fund free mammograms for the underprivileged based on how many "clicks" a day the site gets. The underprivileged do not have to access the site to get the mammogram. It's a fund-raising thing.
    After I clicked on the pink window, I was taken to a page of their sponsors, with mysterious percentages printed below their logo. When I click on these, it said, in small print at the very top of the page, "A $30 purchase will fund 2% of a mammogram for an underprivilaged woman".

    I don't think the clicking itself does anything.

    The breast cancer site is part of "greatergood.com". I think it works in part by exposing you to the ads. There is also a hunger site and a rainforest site. Clicking on the hunger site provides 1 cup of food.

    They also have merchandise of their own--T-shirts and other stuff. I have a friend w/breast cancer and we got her husband a pair of boxers w/pink ribbons all over them!!

    You can shop through a window on the site, the %age's refer to how much of your purchase goes back to the site.

    I guess if you have your own web page, you could put a link on your page and that would help sponsor them.

    Any way, I try to click every day, too. But NEVER AT WORK!!
