Hey Daily Kos community.  I was reading my tweets this morning and found an interesting tweet that will raise major $s for cancer research with very little effort.

Drew Carey (yes, the Price is Right Drew Carey) has put a challenge on his twitter page that he will give $100,000 to the Lance Armstrong Foundation if he reaches 100,000 followers by 11/09.  Knowing Drew, I'm sure he'll still make a donation to LiveStrong, but it would be nice to get the whole $100,000

He gained 10,000 followers in one day after making the announcement.

If you have a twitter account, take the plunge.  Some of his tweets are hilarious.

If you don't have a twitter account, its easy to setup.  I follow a large number of news tweets and find it a quick and easy way to keep informed on what it going on with many of my favorite people/websites.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    The election of Barack Obama as President of the United States puts an exclamation point on Democracy!

    if you're short on funds, keep in mind most cancer research is funded by the federal government.  

    Lance Armstrong has done some interesting things, he's taken the cancer advocacy movement beyond the American Cancer Society, which is a vast improvement.  Lance's organization is the only national cancer charity that focuses on understanding and meeting the needs of survivors, an area that has traditionally been neglected and underfunded.
