Support Passionately Pink for a Cure

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Yahoo! is donating $1 to Komen for the Cure for each pink photo added to this pool:
up to $50k to be exact. The photo collection is stunning. This is a close-up photo of grevillea by PositiveVibrations.

Susan G. Komen for the Cure was formed by
Nancy G. Brinker who promised her dying sister, Susan G. Komen, that she would do everything in her power to end breast cancer forever.

In 1982, that promise became Susan G. Komen for the Cure and launched the global breast cancer movement. Today, Komen for the Cure is the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists fighting to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures.

Thanks to events like Passionately Pink for the Cure, Komen for the Cure has invested nearly $1 billion to fulfill the promise, becoming the largest source of nonprofit funds dedicated to the fight against breast cancer in the world.

In just five days there are already 6,027 members of this group as I write and nearly 19,000 photos already uploaded. More are being added literally every minute.
