International Women’s Day 2011

Today, March 8, is the 100th anniversary of International Women’s Day. Tens of thousands of people are coming together on bridges all over the world today — from the Millennium Bridge in London, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Grand Barriere Bridge joining Rwanda and Congo — to show support for women’s causes and celebrate women’s achievements.

We’re excited that Susan G. Komen for the Cure is the only breast cancer organization selected to be recognized by Google in connection with International Women’s Day events. To check-in at Komen’s virtual bridge, search “Dallas, TX”  at this link. At the bottom of the page, you can visit the “Health” tab and donate in support of International Women’s Day to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help end breast cancer forever.

There is an event in Orange County from 4-5 p.m. on the Balboa Pier in Newport to celebrate International Women’s Day, but if you can’t make it you can check-in virtually to that event or any others on the map! Visit the link and search “Newport Beach” for more information.
