Staci England Helps Raise $56 For American Cancer Society

Thanks to Staci England for sponsoring our Twitter feed (@Abolishcancer) on Friday, December 4, 2009. We started off the day with 251 followers and ended with 307. That's 56 new followers which equals $56 that Staci agrees to donate to the American Cancer Society.

In the 3 plus weeks we've started this program, "the people" have raised $187 just by following a twitter account. This, of course, can only be possible with "daily sponsors" who agree to pay for new followers for any particular day. Send an email to or mention @abolishcancer on Twitter to see about sponsoring. Who's next?

Here's the brief history of our sponsors and the amount they helped raise to fight cancer:

Sponsor Amount
@EnglandinVa $56
@debbiegannon $27
@michaelscher $14
@irishchari $65
@darahbonham $25
For grand total of $187

We all realize that cancer is a killer and has impacted way too many lives. This site is designed to bring together individuals who want to do their part to help find a cure for this disease. We've created this "platform" to let anyone sponsor our @abolishcancer twitter site, and in return, agree to donate $1 for every new follower that day. Each day we get 50 or so new followers, which not only means $50 more dollars to the ACS, but also means our followers grow. As our followership grows, our voice will spread and more people will get involved. In addition to getting more followers, whoever sponsors for that day will get more "press" as we spread the word about their contribution.What would be our ultimate goal? 1,000,000 followers? How about a concerted effort from the "power of the crowd" to win the battle against this disease and abolishcancer.This is a grassroots movement that will only thrive on the viral spread of our followers and sponsors. Lets make this viral spread a positive one. Any efforts, on your behalf, to spread the word are greatly appreciated.
