Susan G. Komen Orange County® LAunches 2013 HOLIDAY Jingle Campaign on #Givingtuesday

From Actors and Reality Stars to Professional Wrestlers and News Anchors, Notable Personalities Sing to Help Komen Orange County Fund Life-Saving Mammograms

COSTA MESA, Calif., Dec. 3, 2013 – In conjunction with #GivingTuesday, Susan G. Komen Orange County® today debuted its second holiday jingle campaign on YouTube ( to help raise funds for life-saving mammograms. This year, a handful of familiar faces – some new and some previous Komen holiday jingle participants – generously donated their time and voices to sing about funding mammograms to the tune of “Jingle Bells.” Last year, the first campaign, which parodied “Winter Wonderland,” helped the Affiliate net a 53 percent increase in funds for its year-end appeal.  With a new song and campaign, Komen Orange County is hoping to match or exceed those efforts in 2013.

“Just like the retail world has popularized Black Friday and Cyber Monday, ‘Giving Tuesday’ was extremely well-received last year as a national day of giving during the holiday season,” said Komen Orange County Executive Director Lisa Wolter. “Last year’s Komen jingle was such a hit – drawing attention to the need to fund Orange County mammograms – that we decided to reprise the campaign and introduce a new parody at a time when holiday giving is top-of-mind.” 

 Click the link, watch and sing along with these celebrities, including:

1.      Peggy Tanous, Lynne Curtin & Lauri Peterson – Real OC Housewives

2.      Christopher Daniels – Star of TNA Impact! Wrestling

3.      Gedde Watanabe – Actor/Long Duk Dong, “Sixteen Candles”

4.      Mindy Sterling – Actress/Frau Farbissina, “Austin Powers”

8.      Ed Arnold – Veteran TV Anchor

9.      Brian Kendrick – WWE Vet, Professional Wrestler

The video aims to bolster the Affiliate’s year-end appeal to raise awareness and gain contributions to fund more mammograms for local underserved and underinsured women and men. It will be featured during Komen Orange County’s Grants Award Breakfast on Dec. 6, when local community partners will receive more than $1 million in grants for local breast health services, education and mammograms.

Original Lyrics: (to the tune of “Jingle Bells”)

Off again we go

A campaign’s underway

Gifts we must bestow

Each and every day

Assistance to be had

For those in desperate need

This jingle is our launching pad

A call we hope you’ll heed


Mamm-o-grams, mamm-o-grams, funding them today

Komen needs your help this year with costs we must defray, oh…

Mammo-grams, mamm-o-grams, funding them today

Komen Orange County seeks support without delay.

Ribbons dressed in pink

Our proud accessories

Reminding us to think

Of curing this disease

Donations made with pride

Whatever you can give

Together we are unified

In helping others live


Mamm-o-grams, mamm-o-grams, funding them today

Contributions are a must – a generous display, oh…

Mammo-grams, mamm-o-grams, funding them today

Komen wishes you and yours a joyous holiday!!
