This year marks the 4th Annual National Feel Your Boobies Week, an annual campaign hosted by the Feel Your Boobies Foundation as part of breast cancer awareness month. “Feel Your Boobies. Remind a Friend.” Is the lighthearted message the Foundation is sending to young women to encourage them to get in touch with their own bodies and remind friends to do the same.
The mission of the Feel Your Boobies Foundation is to utilize unexpected and unconventional methods to remind young women to “feel their boobies”. “Our campaign gets your attention with provocative slogan, but also delivers a life-saving message.” Says Leigh Hurst, Founder of Feel Your Boobies. And she speaks from experience. In 2004 she was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33. Because she was in touch with her body, she felt a lump that otherwise went unnoticed by doctors.
With over 2 million followers on Facebook, making Feel Your Boobies one of the Top 30 Causes on Facebook, the campaign is certainly spreading its message. But it’s doing more than that…it’s saving lives. Young women like holly Rose found her lump because of Feel Your Boobies’ Facebook campaign. “My girlfriend posted “Feel Your Boobies” on Facebook.” Says Rose, “I did that night and found a lump. Had it not been for my friend who posted Feel your boobies on Facebook it could have progressed even further. Feel your boobies saved my life.”
The Feel Yourself Video Campaign for Syracuse University.
After hearing about the promoting campaign with Feel Your Boobies from a posting on the scholarship wall at new House on Syracuse University, I began to think of a major campaign for this video contest in promoting breast cancer awareness. I myself Hakim Griffin and partner Irene Azarkh, both (Syracuse affiliated students) decided to come up with a video submission for this campaign. We put a team of production students, local businesses, and a strong network of production students from all across the nation and most importantly on SU campus who are strong supporters of our “Feel Yourself Campaign”
Our goal of our video is to show a montage of funny scenarios of people who support our cause and video in and around campus. Our “Feel Yourself” video brand would be promoted all over the Internet, Facebook, Twitter, posters, flyers, local businesses, and more. Through the voting period we will be constantly spreading the word of the video and to get people to vote for it. One major promotional event for our video is the “FEEL YOURSELF PROMO EVENT.”
