Ted Rubin talks about [email protected] #Blogust and what the program is doing to help children get a shot at life by providing them with the immunizations they need to survive… and what we can do to help .
Blogust is a 31-day “relay” of blog posts, one per day for the month of August, each post linking to the next in the relay. For each comment on any of the 31 posts, a $20 donation will be made to [email protected].
Here’s how it will work:
Light the Flame…
31 bloggers will each post on a day in August to interview or feature one of their own – someone who’s given them a deep sense of community and support. Someone who has touched them and ignited their heart and spirit.
$20 will be donated to [email protected] for every comment made on each blog that day and on 30 other very special blogs for the month of August. $20 is the cost to immunize a child with 4 essential life-saving vaccines. Comments never mattered so much: $20 literally equals one child’s life. How’s that for currency?
…and Pass the Torch
They will announce, wave, smile, shout-out but most importantly – link – to the next day’s blogger, and the relay continues!
Here’s Where You Come In
You are the ‘secret sauce’ to this relay! Your comments are the key to saving lives and helping mothers and fathers hold on to their children. Every day, make a comment that gives a child a shot at life. Every day, $20 will be donated to [email protected] because you took a moment to write your thoughts on a blog.
Three bloggers and [email protected] Champions, Morra Aarons-Mele, Emily McKhann and Chrysula Winegar talk about why comments count with [email protected].
Check back regularly for the Blogust schedule and updates all throughout August!
Thanks for the reminder! Glad you did a video to explain. I’m sure it’s very helpful to those who were not there to hear the talk. 🙂
Thanks Laura… such a great opportunity for us all to participate and share.
