Blogathon 2011 Update and Offer
The Blogathon on Monday was a big success. The archive post of the entire thing is up for easy access and $349.99 was raised for the Hero Initiative. That’s the most raised in one of my Blogathons to date. But, I think we can do better. As I always do, I’ve left the sponsorship/donation window open for a week and I wanted to make an offer here. Ever since I stopped doing my weekly Random Thoughts here on Comics Should be Good, I’ve been told how much people miss those posts and how much they want to start doing them again. Well, here’s the deal: if the total amount raised as part of the Blogathon hits $500 by 9am EST Tuesday morning (August 23), then, that day, Random Thoughts returns to this blog — and will continue each and every week. Considering only ten people donating raised $349.99, I’m pretty sure the dozens, hundreds, thousands, how ever many people read this blog and love comics can raise another $150 for a fantastic cause and to get me thinking randomly every week again. I know not everyone can afford a lot and that’s fine. It doesn’t take a lot. Five bucks would make my day as far as a donation goes. And, five dollar donations can add up quickly. Giving money to the Hero Initiative is easy and they offer a variety of ways of helping them out:
If you do give, just let me know via e-mail (chevett13[AT]yahoo[DOT]ca) so I can keep track and give you the proper thanks. Like I said, I’d love to crack the $500 mark and, if that happens by 9am EST Tuesday, Random Thoughts returns at its usual time of 4:45pm that day — and every Tuesday that follows. I’m not sure what else I can do to make this a better deal: there’s 49 posts written in 24 hours, the promise of the return of a weekly feature that people seem to enjoy a lot, and a fantastic cause that deserves your support even without those other things.
