Today and all this week is when bloggers will be spreading the word for a good cause. It’s to help teachers and students around the New Orleans area. Hurricane Katrinia’s aftermath is still very much alive around parts of New Orleans, and Louisiana. You can help this cause in two ways.
Help Public School Kids by Funding by Participating in a DonorsChoose Challenge. You can make a donation that will help us get closer to our goals. We have a $25,000 goal, and are hoping to blow that number away. If you can’t afford a donation, then help to spread the word with your blogs. Copy this post or make your own, and just be sure to include Blog Catalog’s link for the event. Blog catalog is the one that is getting this charity event together. My hats off to Blog Catalog and their efforts!
To make a a donation, you can go to the DonorsChoose.org.
Here is more info on the event:
The BlogCatalog buzz experiment started by Mona was a huge success. The real message of the experiment was that the BlogCatalog community can come together & accomplish amazing things.
Since the Buzz Experiment, the BlogCatalog team has looked for a way to pull the community together for a Charitable cause that will benefit Children. It is amazing how challenging it was to find a way for the community to contribute directly to a charity without there being a tax to BlogCatalog and without us having to collect the donations.
Today however we found an organization called DonorsChoose.org that makes it really easy to hold a Community Fundraising Event and we are really excited to announce the NEW BlogCatalog Community Challenge for Public School Teachers and Students
Let’s come together on May 28th. and prove that bloggers can do a whole bunch of good and that we aren’t limited to chronic complainers, contrarians or people who just want to hear the sound of their own voice.
Let’s Prove that a LARGE Group of Bloggers Can Come together For a Lot of Good!
The purpose of the BlogCatalog Community Fundraising Event is to come together and raise money for our public schools. We have set the goal to $25,000. Hopefully we can blow this goal away and raise far more money. If we do we will have set a precedent that will enable our community to do a bunch of good for other causes in the future.
So What Should You Do?
On Monday May 28th, write a blog post asking all your readers to make a donation.
