I’ve just learned that September 1, has been deemed Blog for Relief Day in support of the victims of Hurricane Katrina. I have to thank my friend Paul Chaney for bringing this to my attention and for making me stop and put things in perspective. I’ve been so busy with work that I wasn’t really thinking about what I could do in addition to donating money.
And money is what the disaster relief organizations need. Now.
If you read my other blog Next Level Biz Tips, you know that last December I challenged readers to make contributions to the tsunami relief efforts and then I matched their donations up to $500.
I make that challenge again. If you make a donation to any disaster relief organization between today and 11:59 p.m. Pacific time on September 1, please post a comment here with the amount of your donation, to whom you made it and email me a copy of your receipt. I will post the total donated on Sept. 2 and then match the contributions up to $500. I will make my donation to the American Red Cross.
If you’re a blogger, then please post and urge your readers to contribute tomorrow.
P.S. Here’s a link to a round up of posts about the relief efforts.
