    Enough with the ScooterSqueezes™....
    "What's with all this hugging, kumbaya, baloney anyway?"

    "Scooter's a nice guy and all that, but it's not like I really want to hug him. It's just weird."

    "Jeez, can't a guy donate to a good cause without all this ScooterSqueeze™ nonsense?"


    Well it appears as though there is an emerging faction of affiliate marketers that just don't want to feel the warm embrace of Uncle Scooter -- they just want to give to the March of Dimes.

    We at AffiliateHug.com will not deny them their right to help babies, sans hugs!

    Now, anyone who wants to give a $20.00 donation to the March of Dimes can do so and receive a commemorative "Anti ScooterSqueeze™" button to show off your support for the cause.

    Premature birth affects more than half a million babies in the U.S. every year. It's the #1 cause of newborn death, and babies who survive may suffer lifelong consequences, such as cerebral palsy, mental retardation, chronic lung disease, and vision and hearing loss. The March of Dimes, a nonprofit health organization that works to prevent premature birth and other serious threats to infant help, can really make a difference in an unborn baby's life.

    Your "Anti ScooterSqueeze™" button can be picked up directly from the AffiliateHug.com Table at the Affiliate Meet Market during Affiliate Summit 2007 East in Miami or you may opt to have it shipped to you directly.

    Please help in whatever way you can. If you would like to donate another amount directly to the March of Dimes, please visit http://www.marchofdimes.com/affiliatehug

    Thank you all again for the tremendous amount of support that we've received so far.

    -Missy

    The hugs are few and far between now that Scoots left us Floridians, high and dry

    For those who can't make it to Miami but want to get one of those ScooterSqueezes, we've got you covered.

    You can donate and get your own virtual hug.

    See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcq2xnzWJu8 for an example.

    Looks like Connie & Anne have all sorts of competition now... LOL

    How is the fundraising going so far? Or do we have to wait til we arrive in Miami to find out?

    Same here. And to think it all goes to a good cause, too. Such a great idea.

    Thanks Uncle Scooter! Best hug in the whole wide world, I would have donated $100 bucks for that great hug! Worthy cause and a whole lot of fun!

    Thank you to all who participated here. We raised just under $1800 with hugs. That's a LOT of hugs! I collected more money Monday night from some network folks, so we might even be over $1800. Either way, it is WAY more than I ever expected and a heartfelt THANK YOU to all. I hugged some awesome people, even a parasite or two, but it's all good and the March of Dimes can use the money.

    The Scooter Squeeze was one of my favourite parts of the summit. Another was when Scooter sidled over to us and admitted he had just hugged a parasite ... we told him to go wash his hands

    Well done with the fund raising Scooter ... you did really well selling your body for charity

    I am currently rocking my "Freshly Squeezed" t-shirt as I type.

    Thanks, Scooter for having such a big heart and a top notch bear hug!

    The hug was the best, but I think you cheated Alex on his hug. You hugged him so fast to get him out of way so you could hug me... You know there will always be more hugs from me, baby. Especially since you like me better than Connie....

    I forgive him, no problem. At least he hurried to hug someone that is prettier then me. Otherwise, I would have been offended.
