Loxly Gallery Supports the Boobies!

Loxly Gallery is an online showcase developed by photographer and digital artist Deborah Carney.

During Affiliate Summit 2008 East in Boston, Cory Booker, they Mayor of Newark, NJ and keynote speaker at the conference referenced a passage from Luke 12:48, paraphrased as “To whom much is given, much is expected.”

It is a saying that I take to heart and means a great deal to me.  And, Deb knew this.

As a way to show her support on the fight against Breast Cancer, Deb took one of my favorite photos that I shot during my yearly trip to Aruba (a fabulous Aruba sunset) and added the quote to it.

The print is now for sale on and she is donationg 50% of the retail price to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, the charity that AffilateMarketersGiveBack is currently supporting.

Thanks Deb for making this happen.   Way to pay it forward!

One Week To Go Until Seattle!


With less than 1 week to go before Missy flies out to Seattle for the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-day / 60-mile walk, she reflects on the journey thus far. She also talks about why she’s not going to CJU this time and what her and Shawn Collins of Affiliate Summit have up their sleeve during BlogWorld Expo in Las Vegas this month.

We’ve raised $36,163 for Breast Cancer Awareness So Far

So we’re coming down to the wire….

I wanted to take time out to thank my team for all of their fundraising efforts, for taking time out of their lives to train for and walk 60-miles, for forking up the costs of travel to Seattle and hotel nights and lastly, for dealing with my nutty ideas on how to raise enough money to hit our fundraising goal.

Angel Djambazov, Jen Fluker, Karen Garcia, Jen Goode, Debby Phillips, Laura Przybek, Adam Riemer, Lisa Riolo, Irene and Tiffany Spaulding — your generosity knows no bounds and you have my undying gratitude.

To the other walkers we’ve lost along the way, thank you for all of your efforts and we hope to have you join us next year.

I am grateful to our T-shirt sponsors for stepping up with their liberal donations. Here’s what Team Affiliate Marketers Worldwide will be sporting during our walk:

Pretty sharp, eh?

I would also like to thank each of the affiliate marketers that purchased an “I Gave Back Button”, made special donations, supplied us with prizes to give away, popped up banners on their sites, blogged about the cause and sent notes of encouragement. I am humbled by the big-heartedness of this industry when it comes to rallying for a cause.

To date, our team has raised $36,163.00 (90% of our goal) for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Foundation. That number is just awe-inspiring to me and we still have a couple of weeks to go!

Over the last week, I’ve had a few people ask me what they can do to help, if anything. Right now, we’re pretty much set and simply concentrating on helping a few of the team members hit their ($2,200) minimum goal. So, if you’d like to make a donation, I ask that you select Angel, Karen or Adam, when doing so. Donations can be made online at and then clicking on the individual’s name.

If you’re in Seattle and would like to come cheer us on or meet up for dinner, the walk is September 12-14. Shoot me off an email 🙂

You can also check us out virtually, as I will be posting videos and pictures during the walk on this site or follow us on Twitter at

One more big round of applause for everyone that has supported us!

Wish us a blister-free 60!
