It started as a joke back in 2002, but it quickly grew into something really big. Some bloggers got the idea of posting pictures of their breasts online in order to raise money for charity. And whaddaya know – breasts are really popular on the Internet! They soon found themselves awash in donations, and so they decided to make it a genuine charity fundraising drive. Boobie-Thon has gotten bigger, better, and more beautiful with each passing year!
The fifth annual Boobie-Thon took place on October 1, 2006. It officially began at midnight of that day…and when I checked on it at 7:30 AM, the site reported that over $1,000 had already been raised for charity! As of Sunday, October 8th, the site reported that $9,220.40 had been raised. Not bad for a bunch of boobs, eh?
