Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

My fellow team member, Lynette LaPlante and I want to thank everyone who participated in the Not-So-Silent, Silent Auction.

Together we raised an incredible $12,056.54 during the auction, which will be donated to the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

(On a side note, I did the 60-mile Susan G. Komen walk in Lynette's honor last year, when she was stricken by breast cancer. I am excited to say that she is doing well and is strong enough to walk with us this next month when Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back heads out for the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles.)

We <3 U!

The auction is now over.  A great big thank you to TattoMedia for the awesome $4,250.00 donation bid that won my boobies!  I promise I won't disappoint!


Tomorrow at midnight EST, is your final opportunity to place your bids on the Silent Auction taking place on, to raise funds to fight breast cancer.

I am offering up the unusual opportunity below. At the time of this post, the current bid is $4,000.00.

Please consider bidding on my auction or the other fantastic opportunities available to help Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back kick breast cancer's butt.

Missy Ward Will Let You Brand Her Boobies during BlogWorld

Donated by Missy Ward


Missy Ward is the co-founder of Affiliate Summit, FeedFront Magazine,, and more. She is also the founder of Affiliate Marketers Give Back and an active fundraiser for charities that support research and treatment to put and end to breast cancer.

Missy speaks at a number of marketing conferences throughout the year and wants to spread the word about your brand.

This auction is for Missy to wear your branded shirt (t-shirt, tank top, tuxedo shirt, whatever you want) during BlogWorld in Las Vegas (October 15-17).  (She will be speaking on a panel and manning the Affiliate Summit booth during BlogWorld.)

Additionally, Missy will also run your 125×125 banner for 30 days on and mention your company as the winner on her podcasts, and

Winner must provide Missy with 3 shirts to wear during the conference.

Missy is not shy, so not only will folks walking around these two conferences notice your brand, but she will gladly hop in every picture or video that she can, sporting your shirt.

This is an excellent branding opportunity for merchants, affiliate networks, CPA networks, OPM’s, affiliates or anyone else that wants to get their brand out there.. or just make Missy look weird.

Affiliate Summit East 2009 took place at the New York Hilton on August 9-11, 2009.

Peter Shankman, founder of HARO, was that keynote on Day 3 of the conference.

If you were not able to attend the conference, (or were unable to wake up in time for the keynote) here's what you missed.

Peter Shankman was not only spot on when it came to the material he spoke about, but he was filled with some lively jokes that made me remember the good old '80's, when things were a lot more simple.

The next Affiliate Summit Conference & Trade Show takes place in Las Vegas, at the Rio Hotel on January 17-29, 2010.
