Help a Blogger in Need

Regular ProBlogger readers might be familiar with the comments of RT Cunningham. Richar is a regular around many blogs in this niche and blogs at Untiwisted Vortex. Unfortunately his wife has been quite unwell and he’s facing something of an uphill battle at the moment to get through the next few months.

Richard’s readers got on his back about adding a paypal donation button to his blog in the comments on this thread – if you’re in a position to help him out he’s got a donation button up on his blog (top of the left hand sidebar).

Thanks to Vic for the heads up on this one.

    Don’t know the guy but happy to help out a guy in need. Donation has been made.

  2. Lori says:

    I’m all for helping a person in need as well. My donation was small but hopefully helpful. God bless and best wishes to him and his family.

  3. Leon says:

    I would love to help but I have no means to. Hope his wife recovers. We’re all behind you!

  4. Done and done. I put it up on my blog, too. Thanks for the heads-up, Darren.

    Though I’ve been reading ProBlogger for months, this is my first time commenting. I just wanted to thank you for doing what you can to help out someone else. Humanity would be a lot better if everyone put forth just a little effort to do that. I don’t have much to give, and I don’t subscribe to his blog, but I’m happy to chip in what I can. A loan, as he says, which I’m sure he’ll repay with valuable content and goodwill.

  6. Thanks, Darren. And thanks to all of the commenters as well.

    Donation made…Mr. Cunningham said to treat this as a loan. He doesn’t have a loan with me, but simply a request to pay it forward. May God bless him and his family. Thanks for giving us the heads up here, Darren.

    I was so pleased to see you had posted this, Darren, you can reach so many more people than most other bloggers.

    Amazing – he had to take down the button because he received too much. I feel as if I have a renewed faith in mankind. I was also hoping to donate a little bit here or there for him as I try to have one good deed of the week. I’m sure we all try for one every day, but a random little good deed each week doesn’t seem like an overstretched goal.

  20. It looks like Sky News ( http://news.sky.com/skynews/home ) is picking up on the story. I may have to put my blog into WP Super Cache lock down mode. I’ll keep my eyes peeled.

    This is so awesome that everyone made Richard take donations. I’m heading over to his blog now.
