A local radio station is putting on a contest to win $10,000 towards a boob job…umm WHAT?! The dj responded on twitter to a question as to why they’re doing this contest with “people choose these procedures for different reasons. theyre expensive, our contest is helping someone who has made that choice.”
While I completely agree that everyone has the freedom to choice and their own reasons for getting implants, I don’t agree that a radio station should be giving $10,000 for someone to be getting it.
The contest will go on, so I do hope that it goes to a woman who had breast cancer or some other illness and actually needs it.
What are everyone else’s views on this?

I mean, it’s their money, they can do what they want with it. I’m a very busty girl, and idk why anyone would want them. Clothes don’t fit, you have back pain and creepy old men stare at your chest. 😛

@Ryansgirl: lol. CJ92?
Sounds like something they’d do!
I dunno, I guess I kind of agree with the radio persons answer. I’m sure there will be girls who don’t “need” it joining the contest, but I’m sure their will be people who do need it and can’t afford it, and that’d be nice if it went to them.
I’m not for unnecessary cosmetic work. But I do think that if you are doing it for you, honestly for you, then there’s nothing wrong with it, especially if it will help with your self esteem and confidence.

Hmmmmmm, if they were offering a free tummy tuck then I know I’d be calling in trying to win that contest!!!!!! But you’re right, how much nicer would it be for a woman to get reconstructive surgery if she lost one or both breasts from cancer…

@Ryansgirl: that’s crazy! I thought I heard something about this a whiile ago about another station doing it and there were all sorts of rules they had to follow that it became too complicated and they cancelled it. Something to do with the Competition Act not allowing that kind of contest..
Wouldn’t it be covered by provincial health care if it were illness related (breast cancer)? Here it is as far as I know.

@AudzinLuv: Ditto to the tummy tuck! Although, I can think of far more important things to spend $10000 on than cosmetic surgery (my son’s future being at the top of that list).

@Ms. Martian: I have no idea if it would be covered here, but I’m hoping they’ll cancel this one too. There are a gazillion more things that $10,000 can be better put towards.

@Ryansgirl: No kidding…they should give this money to the children’s hospital or a more worthy cause. Even better, they should have tied it into breast cancer awareness and maybe given it to someone who’s done a ton of work to raise money or campagne…that would make more sense…

Hopefully they pick someone deserving and not just someone insecure with their itty bittys.

It’s Amp Radio…there is no way they’ll cancel the contest. Their listeners are way more likely to get excited over plastic surgery than a college scholarship or anything else that could be put towards. They know what their target demographic is, and they’re going after it.

I would love to have that money towards some student loans! LMAO

A radio station where I live is doing that as well. I wonder if it is the same station although it says the OP is in Canada. I personally don’t agree with it and I am actually a little scared that a radio station is having a contest for a surgery. Hopefully whoever gets it ‘needs’ it, for whatever reason. I wonder if there is an age limit? That would be crazy if at 16 year old won or something.

I think it sounds a little awesome! Coming from insecure itty bitties over here who can’t afford a boob job!
