Blogathon 2007

Remember when you were in elementary school and you used to have “spell-a-thons” or “walk-a-thons”? Going around to friends, family and neighbours asking them to sponsor you to raise money for a cause, a new basketball hoop for the gym or that French class trip to Quebec? Blogathon is kinda like that.

Every 30 minutes for 24 hours on July 28th participating bloggers are asked to post content and gather pledges and donations for the charity of their choice. Last year I heard about this on Metblogs and a couple other sites so for 2007 I am participating on my own blog and my donations will be going straight from the donor to the Surrey Food Bank. I won’t be handling any of the money, although I will be chugging back coffee and trying to stay awake all night at the computer.

I decided to look up any more Vancouver area bloggers who will be participating and so far I’ve found this blog here called “Open Up” who will be blogging for the Vancouver Rabbit Rescue Agency.

If you have a local blog and are participating in Blogathon please leave your details in the comments section. I’ll add you to a little list here on Metblogs in order to get you some more traffic for your cause.

I’d love to check out what others will be doing during that time as well. For more Blogathon blogs, check out their blogroll. Best of luck everyone!

UPDATE: Hummingbird604 is also participating for A Loving Spoonful.

    Hey Rebecca, thanks so much for the mention! I’ll be sure to reciprocate and have added your blog to my reads for the ‘thon. Good luck!
