We will spare no effort to free our fellow men, women and children from the abject and dehumanizing conditions of extreme poverty, to which more than a billion of them are currently subjected. — Millennium Declaration

Campaign Idea & Objectives:

End poverty by 2015. This is the historic promise 189 world leaders made at the United Nations Millennium Summit in 2000 when they signed onto the Millennium Declaration and agreed to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The MDGs are an eight-point road map with measurable targets and clear deadlines for improving the lives of the world’s poorest people. World leaders have agreed to achieve the MDGs by 2015.

The UN Millennium Campaign supports & inspires people from across the world to take action in support of the Millennium Development Goals. It invites people to join millions worldwide as they “Stand Up & Take Action” against poverty.

What Color Is Your Bra? — Learn Social Media By Example

Breast cancer is an uncontrolled growth of breast cells. According to the Mayo Clinic, “Breast cancer is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer deaths in American women.”

Just think about the many things that might cause the wear and tear that leads to abnormal cell growth—pollutants, hormones, pesticides, smoking, alcohol use, obesity, stress….” Marisa Weiss M.D., president and founder, breast radiation oncologist, Philadelphia, PA (Learn more)

In order to help spread awareness of this life-threatening disease, this campaign was initiated. Although the campaign’s origins are yet unknown to us, “What Color is Your Bra?” simply urged women to post their bra color on Facebook.

Campaign Objectives & Goals:

In January 2010, many men started wondering why many of their Facebook female friends were putting different colors as their Facebook status updates. No one knew it then but it was a discrete shout out to women all over the world. The shout out was for breast cancer awareness!

Facebook Bra Color Updates

A blogger for awareness of breast cancer reported the following: “I was confused all morning,  figured I’d sort it out sooner or later… So, like every good Facebooker, I played along by peeking in my shirt and updating my status: Beige. What I turned up on the Internet is that the purpose of this color thing is to simply raise awareness of breast cancer“.
