BlogCatalog Wants You to Make a Difference

BlogCatalog continues to grow as a social network for bloggers, but that hasn’t stopped the Website from finding the time to do some good. On May 15, the site, together with Amnesty International is asking Web writers to join their Bloggers Unite For Human Rights campaign.

From showing solidarity with our blogging brothers and sisters who live in places where freedom of expression is regularly suppressed to making people aware about the displacement of people in Darfur, Sudan – here’s your opportunity to do something.

“Amnesty International is thrilled to be a part of Bloggers Unite for Human Rights,” said Larry Cox, executive director of Amnesty International USA. “Bloggers Unite for Human Rights is a great way to harness the power of the Internet to fight injustice and make the world a better place.”

The more bloggers that participate, the better the chances of unknown stories capturing daylight.
