Non weekend readers might have missed the fact that this weekend I’m celebrating my 2nd birthday here at ProBlogger with a ‘Chicken-a-thon’.
Yes I’m blogging for Chickens in the hope of raising some money for Charity.
You can read about the project here.
So far donations total $240AU ($180US) and we’ve paid for 24 pairs of chickens. Thanks to everyone who is participating and who has spread the news of what we’re doing.
I’d love to see the chook-o-meter in the side bar get into triple figures by the end of the week – we’ve got a long way to go but I think that together we can do it.
A few points of clarification on the project:
- $10AU ($7.50US) buys a pair of chickens rather than 1 chicken.
- If you don’t wish to support Oxfam but have another charity you’d like to give your money to then this is fine. Some have given money through Heifer instead who also ‘do’ Chickens. Just send me a receipt or something and I’ll include your donation in the totals (if you’d like). Ultimately this isn’t about a particular charity – it’s about finding a way to make a difference with blogging.
Don’t like the idea of giving Chickens? I’ve had a suggestion that it’s a gift that might be a little hard for some vegetarians and vegans to support. There are plenty of non animal gifts at the Oxfam unwrapped store. More than happy to include any other purchases in the count.
