July 26, 2006 (2): More Fundraising Craziness

Posted in Uncategorized by ohthatdeb on July 26, 2006

… but this one is for next year. Given that this insane thing is three days away, I’m swamped, we have guests coming, there isn’t enough time to really raise much, and I hate staying up late…

Still, this is pretty cool. Starting in 2001, bloggers around the world have participated in the Blogathon, a yearly, 24-hour blogging marathon. The rules are that for a full day (and yes, all night) bloggers have to post to their blogs at least once every 30 minutes. Good Lord, whatever for? I hear you cry.

Well, to raise money for their favorite charities, that’s why. The sponsorship system works very much like any of these events: you pledge your support for the person who is willing to do one crazy-@ss thing or another, and everybody comes out on top.

Bear this in mind for next year, folks, and don’t put away those wallets just yet, we’ve got some very interesting donation opportunities coming up… (“ooh, what can it be?” “shhh, it’s a secret.” “you never tell me anything.” “well, you can’t keep secrets, that’s why!”)

Oh. I’m sorry. Was that out loud?
