Are you too old to stay awake for 24 hours?
Are you too lazy to blog every half hour for 24 hours?
Are you too busy to glue your butt to the chair for 24 hours?
Well, never mind. I am also too old, too lazy and too busy. But I am participating in the above. As a donor.
I had been following Yvonne’s blog for a while and admire her guts and cheerfulness inspite of adversities she face. This young lady is taking part in the Blogathon 2005 and has chosen Eden Handicap Centre as the beneficiary of the charitable event. Eden is here in Penang and they helped the disabled.
So, how about joining in Blogathon 2005 by pledging a sum of money? Yvonne gave a suggested amount of RM1 for each blog she posted, i.e. every 30 mins in a 24 hour period. That is RM48. You can pledge more or less, up to you. Any amount also can.
I shall paste Yvonne’s email here. You can find out more details from the links she provided.
BLOGATHON IS BACK AGAIN!! I am participating in this year’s Blogathon
set on the 6th August 2005. The race begins at 9:00am Eastern Time. It
is a race to post at least one blogpost in every 30 minutes for 24
The purpose of Blogathon is to raise money for charity. Sponsors can
pledge ANY AMOUNT they want. The minimum blogpost in 24 hours is 48.
If you pledge $1 for each blogpost.. you’ll be donating $1X48=$48.
Again, you may pledge any amount you wish. Even as little as 10 cents!
But because most of my friends are minors, I make it a point to post
the minimum amount of blogpost and that is 48 blog posts. So you may
plan your finances accordingly.
Here is how the money goes….
Sponsors —> Blogathon —-> NGO/Beneficiaries
When registration is open, you are invited to sign up as a sponsor at
www.blogathon.org and choose “eden handicap service center” as your
beneficiary. I will email you when its time to register.
