Blogathon 2005: Blogging for Victims of the Tsunami

I believe that Blogging can make a difference not only to the hip pockets of those doing the blogging but the wider community. This is your chance to join me in such a project.

On Thursday 20 January I will be blogging for 24 hours straight with at least one post every 15 minutes to raise money for victims of the Tsunami. I’ll be blogging at this blogathon site and would like to invite you to be a part of the project.

You can support the project in a number of ways – either by a direct donation, sponsoring the site (I’ll leave your ads up forever!), by helping promote the project or by helping me out with content or proof reading.

I’m particularly seeking some marketing/PR savy bloggers to help get the word out through the blogosphere about the project as the more who hear about it and visit the site the more we’ll be able to raise through donation or via sponsorship.

I’d also love someone with some design skills to design me a little button to promote the blogathon that I can give to other bloggers to put on their sites. Doesn’t have to be anything too amazing – if it could just say something like ‘Tsunami Blogathon’ or something similar. Any takers?

I’m attempting to make the project as transparent and accountable as possible so that 100% of all money raised goes through to our chosen charity who are doing some great work in the Tsunami affected areas.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me as soon as possible if you have any ideas or would like to lend a hand to the project.
