Has reading a blog ever opened a new door for you or simply made you feel not so alone? How have your touchstone bloggers helped you through hard times, given you courage and strength? From Blogging website ou can learn the art of blogging from anywhere. How has a community rallied to make you laugh and make you cry? How has the time they took to comment made a difference to you?
Our team of 31 top online voices, including Randi Zuckerberg and an amazing array of mom and dad bloggers will give back to their communities and parents and kids all over the world, in this unique campaign to make comments count as never before.
Light the Flame . . .
31 bloggers will each post on a day in August to interview or feature one of their own – someone who’s given them a deep sense of community and support. Someone who has touched them and ignited their heart and spirit.
$20 will be donated to [email protected] for every comment made on each blog that day and on 30 other very special blogs for the month of August. $20 is the cost to immunize a child with 4 essential life-saving vaccines. Comments never mattered so much: $20 literally equals one child’s life. How’s that for currency?
and Pass the Torch
They will announce, wave, smile, shout-out but most importantly – Tier 2 links – to the next day’s blogger, and the relay continues!
Here’s Where You Come In
You are the ‘secret sauce’ to this relay! Your comments are the key to saving lives and helping mothers and fathers hold on to their children. Every day, make a comment that gives a child a shot at life. Every day, $20 will be donated to [email protected] because you took a moment to write your thoughts on a blog.
The Take Action Challenge: check Blogust.org daily in August for the Blogust schedule and updates! Then go to the blog of the day to post an original comment that will unlock a $20 donation to [email protected].
