Blogging for Chickens Ends – 110 Pairs of Chickens Donated

Posted By Darren Rowse 4th of October 2006 ProBlogger Site News 9

images.jpegJust a short note to let people know that the Blogging for Chickens project is officially over.

Thanks to all who have made donations. The total raised was $1100 (AU) (around $830US) – that is 110 pairs of chickens going to families living in poverty.

Having travelled through and lived for short periods of time in a number of slums in SE Asian countries I know what an impact even a small donation like this can have upon the life of a family – thank you all for your generosity.

In the next day or two (once a couple of paypal e-checks have cleared) I’ll make a payment to Oxfam on behalf of those who took the option to donate via my paypal (most of those who participated took this option).

  1. congratulations on a successful project Darren.

  2. […] I didn’t BlogJolt last week (Sob). This weeks’ BlogJolt is totally late (Grr). I didn’t Blogtip this week (Boo). I didn’t finish my commitments this week for my Mastermind Group (thankfully they gave me a reprieve from my leverage this time around). And my site traffic is down because I have let go of my traffic building tasks for a little while (deep breath – people WILL come back!!). And I totally forgot to send $ to Blog for Chickens (Poop!).

  3. Fantastic! Good on you, Darren, and to all those who donated.

  4. Awesome! Sure is great wjen a team of people from all over the workd get together to make a difference.

  5. Very cool. That is a lot of chickens. Then factor in how fast they multiply. Wooooo.

  6. […] On the heels of Darren’s successful Bloggin For Chickens, I’m pondering the idea of bloggers untiting for a worthy cause. […]

  7. Darren did you give that money ($1100) or you kept it for yourself?

  8. I always find something new and interesting every time I come around here – thanks.

  9. […] By the way, blogging for a charity is a fairly common thing to do (Darren at Problogger blogged for chickens for Oxfam and ended up donating 110 pairs at ~AU$10 a pair), as are blogathons (Nick over at Punny Money and JD at Get Rich Slowly participated this year for their charity, First Book).
