After some reader feedback all Weblog Empire blogs are now supporting the effort by Save the Children to provide relief services to those suffering after following Cyclone Katrina.
Banners are being run exclusively across the network at least for the next week or so to encourage people to donate.
I’ve also put together a generic banner as well you’d like to use it for your site:
right click on the banner and then save as. Link it to the following url:
Further charities recommended by readers are available here, but at the end of the day I want to help people, I want the charity to be preferably non-religious, and I want some sort of assurance that the money actually gets to the people in need, not kept for a later date as is typical of the Red Cross, at least here in Australia.
I would urge all readers to donate if they haven’t done so already. Even a small amount, $5 or $10 dollars, all helps. Please, by all means, if you do donate, let us know in the comments. I’ll run a feature during next week highlighting every Blog Herald reader who gets behind Save the Children, so make sure you leave your comment here with the amount you’ve donated, or alternatively email me with the amount and blog details for the special posts. Lets see if we can raise $1000 or even more!
Thanks and god speed.
