Need Help Fighting Cervical Cancer

January is Cervical Cancer Awareness Month. In honor of this recognition we are seeking a sponsor for a Twitterthon in January to raise awareness & $ to fight this disease. In the United States alone, 11,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer each year and over 4,000 die.

A Twitterthon can help raise not only funds for a particular cancer charity devoted to fighting cervical cancer but also a tremendous amount of awareness through our tweets and retweets. We have an influential designer who will be our partner in the Twitterthon but we need a sponsor.

What does it take to be a sponsor?

A sponsor agrees to pay $1 for every new follower that @abolishcancer receives over a course of a day. All the monies go directly to the cancer charity (@abolishcancer receives no funds). The beauty of a Twitterthon is that not only does the cancer charity get a $1 for every new follower but the hundreds and thousands of tweets, many by celebrities, that spread the word and awareness on Twitter. This is better than any ad in a newspaper or billboard road sign.

We need a minimum $2,000 commitment from a sponsor for the Twitterthon to occur. The sponsor also gets the benefit of being tweeted about all day long as well. Since @abolishcancer began 14 months ago, we have helped raise over $43,000 for various cancer charities BY TWEETING & FOLLOWING.

If you are interested in partnering with @abolishcancer, shoot us an email at We also have a special “micro” Twitterthon month coming up in February. For each workday in February we are asking for a $500 sponsor to support a cancer charity of their choice. So far we have 5 commitments with 15 left to go.

Please spread the word….

“Power of the People, Through Twitter, to @abolishcancer”
