"I Heart Boobs" T-shirts Help Save Lives

OU's Relay for Life executive committee is selling "I heart boobs" t-shirts. The proceeds from these shirts, along with all other Relay for Life fundraising benefits the American Cancer Society. According to the Susan G. Komen breast cancer research facility, almost 200,000 American women were diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.

These t-shirts symbolize this particular disease with the breast cancer emblem in the middle of the heart. The shirts are $12, and the committee will be selling the shirts March 8-12 during their "Paint the Campus Purple" publicity week at the Oklahoma Memorial Union.

"Selling the shirts is our biggest fundraiser of the year, and I really encourage everyone to buy one. The money goes to such an important cause," said Relay for Life chair, Josh Fried.

During the committee's first Paint the Campus Purple Week on the week of February 22, they raised over $1500, selling the t-shirts. If you can't seem to find time to volunteer your time somewhere that week, spend 5 minutes, buying an "I heart boobs" t-shirt. Many OU students have already contributed to this fundraiser and can be seen wearing them around campus.

Relay for Life committee member, Elizabeth Auld, says why she thinks it is important to purchase one of these t-shirts.
