@TheLocalTourist and @PennyTLT are jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. Why? To raise money for breast cancer research, of course!

Theresa Carter, founder & publisher of, is jumping out of a perfectly good airplane and bringing her mother Penny with her.

Theresa's grandmother is a breast cancer survivor, so the two ladies are "leaping" at the chance to help raise money and awareness so that more and more women can win the battle.

Jumping out of a “perfectly good airplane” is a truly life-affirming decision. So is choosing to fight against cancer. And so is honoring the memory of those who’ve already lost that fight. The Chicagoland Skydiving Center is hosting a 3-day skydiving campaign for new and veteran jumpers. A portion of proceeds from all jumps during “Operation: Pink Sky” will be donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

Every single dollar helps, so donate today.

How else can you help? Spread the word! You can use Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, Google+, blog posts, Tumblr, MySpace, carrier pigeon, hot air balloons, skywriters...

Please use hashtag #operationpinksky and tag us: @thelocaltourist @pennytlt
