I'm not an exhibitionist, I'm not a model, and I'm not a huge show-off. So why am I posing without a shirt on? Because I'm pledging to raise awareness of breast cancer. The Estée Lauder Companies invited me to participate in this year's campaign to fight this disease, and I've joined nine other women (and one man!) to do so.
The idea is simple: make a pledge to do something about breast cancer — it could be as simple as vowing to do a monthly self-examination — and encourage your friends to do the same. (If you visit Bloomingdale's 59th Street in New York, you'll see all of our portraits and be able to upload your own video pledge directly from the store.)
