Breast Cancer Awareness Month is winding down, but that doesn’t mean it’s too late to help. Derek Hough from “Dancing with the Stars” knows a super easy way to take part in stepping up to breast cancer.
Julianne’s older bro Tweeted:
Help me raise money for breast cancer research, no donation required: bit.ly/StandUp2Breast…— Derek Hough (@derekhough) October 24, 2012
What he’s saying is not too good to be true, and his link explains it. Everyday Health has hooked up with the research institution Sloan Kettering in order to bring in more money for very important breast cancer research. If you add a special pink badge to your Facebook picture, Everyday Health will hand over 50 cents to Sloan Kettering. Just follow their directions on how to get the badge. If enough people do this, that money can really add up — their goal is to reach $25,000 in donations.
Like Victoria Beckham and Jessica Lowndes, he’s doing what he can to help. He also shows that it’s def not just women who are concerned about breast cancer research. As a matter of fact, 1 in 1,000 men battle breast cancer. Let’s see how pink Facebook can get in the next six days!
