Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
Jack Black, Bob Saget, Zach Galifianakis and Kevin Connolly expand the Noreen Fraser Foundation's (NFF) Men for Women Now campaign onto the Facebook platform to help in the fight against women's cancer. SocialVibe, the leading social media utility that empowers people to benefit their causes and communities by engaging with brand sponsors and sharing branded content with their social graph, infuses ground-breaking social media fundraising technology by offering the millions of global Facebook users the ability to fund ground-breaking women's cancer research without opening their pocketbooks.
NFF's Men for Women Now campaign targets men by urging them to support the women in their lives through a pledge that includes healthy eating, regular exercise, no smoking, self breast exams and scheduling appointments for a mammogram and pap smear. Jack Black, Kevin Connolly, Bob Saget and Zach Galifianakis each co-wrote and star in their own webisodes that use humor to tout the importance of prevention and early detection of women's cancers.

"Taking the Men for Women Now program to social media is an exciting opportunity for us. With SocialVibe's technology, the millions of global Facebook users can now help raise money in the fight without spending money and that will appeal to everyone" stated Noreen Fraser.
SocialVibe created a custom Facebook fundraising application that gives users the ability to send an important pledge to their network of friends and encourages them to help "save boobs" thus reducing the risk of women's cancers. Each time a Facebook user sends the pledge and each time someone agrees to the pledge, SocialVibe will give $0.25 to NFF to fund groundbreaking women's cancer research. "The application is simple; users help save boobs by choosing up to 10 women at a time from the users' friends list to send the NFF pledge," said Kevin Connolly.
We're thrilled at the opportunity to help in the fight against Women's Cancer. Through our fun, light hearted and competitive Facebook application, socially-conscious users can make a difference without reaching into their pocketbooks. The ability to work alongside these unbelievable actors further cements the global importance we all share in helping to find a cure," said President of SocialVibe, Joe Marchese.
