Tweeting To Abolish Cancer

Since we began 14 months ago, you've helped us raise over $43,000 for various cancer charities by Tweeting and following. These monies are raised by our Twitterthons. A Twitterthon is when a sponsor (donor) agrees to pay $1 for every new follower that @abolishcancer receives in a given day to a cancer charity of their choice. Most Twitterthons average between $2,000-$3,000. This money is guaranteed up front by the sponsor who then pays the charity directly within 72 hours after the conclusion of the event.

We are also offering a special "micro" Twitterthon for the month of February, allowing a sponsor to host a Twitterthon in the amount of $500 for a charity of their choice. Our goal is to get a sponsor each workday (20 in the month) to equal $10,000 donated to charity by following us on Twitter.

The beauty of the Twitterthon is that the charity receives 100% of the proceeds (@abolishcancer only gets followers) and the charity AND sponsor get tweeted about hundreds and thousands of times throughout the course of the day. We also have over 125 influential followers and celebrities that follow and support our work.

We believe that you are helping form a community of fighters that are supporting a MOVEMENT to abolish cancer. We are always looking for ways to partner. If interested, contact us at
