Obama's 100th Day & Pioneers For A Cure

Today is Israel's Independence Day, Yom Hatzmaut, and it's also the 100th day of President Obama's Administration. It's also the official launch day for Pioneers For A Cure.

We congratulate Israel on it's 61st Birthday, having overcome impossible odds to gain independence and maintain it day by day.

We congratulate President Obama as he leads the U.S. during these troubled economic times. Much has been made of his grassroots support during the campaign and his use of micro donations to reach his goals.

Pioneers For A Cure is also using micro philanthropy to help the fight against cancer.
We want to give props to Les C. of Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, UK for being the first person to make multiple downloads on the Pioneers For A Cure website. His total of $17.91 results in funds being targeted to Breast Cancer Research FoundationCancer patients of the Phyllis Newman Health InitiativeChai Lifeline Children's Cancer Camp SimchaDr. Allyson J. Ocean Research Fund - Weill Cornell Medical CollegeEllen's RunIsrael Children's Cancer FoundationSusan G Komen for the Cure, and Israel Cancer Research Fund.

We hope this model of downloads for donations will help us achieve our goal of making a difference for those affected by cancer.
