Help #beatcancer Today.

My really good friend Victoria, sent me this email last night.
Today at 9am PST the official #beatcancer race for a new record begins at Blog World Expo.

Last year, a Guinness World Record was set by Everywhere,
out of Atlanta, Georgia (raising more than $70,000) for the “Most
...Widespread Social Network Message” with #beatcancer. In 24 hours the
one-word phrase #beatcancer set the record contributing to the 209,771 unique mentions on Twitter, Facebook and blog posts.

To participate, all you need to do is add the hashtag #beatcancer
(all one word) to any tweet, Facebook status update or blog post.
There will be a donation made of ($0.05)* per
mention of #beatcancer on Twitter, Facebook, or blog post during the 24
hour Guinness World Record attempt. All money will be donated to the
designated cancer serving non-profits, LIVESTRONG Foundation, Bright Pink and Stand Up To Cancer. (full details -

Can we beat the WORLD RECORD this year?
I think we can! Let's get to tweeting!

Today is Victoria's birthday so lets all do this!

This is in memory of my Uncle Jim and Uncle Jorge who lost their battle to cancer and were taken from us too soon.


  1. Great post Sheila. I think everyone in the social media world needs to rally around the #beatcancer hashtag. So many people are affected and it is so easy to do.

  2. Thanks Sheila! Gosh... now I'm blushing...:)
