Natasha over at Maw Books Blog is trying to do something amazing with her blog. She has dedicated the month of September to raising awareness and money for the genocide in Darfur. She's already posted a video of herself asking for help, as well as listed a huge number of links and videos to help you to learn more. Here's how you can help (taken from her website):
- Commit to write a post (if you have a blog or website) dedicated to the Reading for Darfur campaign. Use the button shown here and link back to this page. For every person who does this I will donate 25 cents to a organization that makes a difference in Darfur (list of these organizations follow below). Put the button in your sidebar linking to this post during the entire month of September and I will donate 25 cents more.
- Commit to visit my blog on a consistent basis during September. For each comment left anywhere on my blog all month I will donate 10 cents.
- Commit to read any of the books or watch any of the documentaries listed on this page. For every book that you read or video you watch during September, I will donate 50 cents. If you have a blog and review that book or video I will donate $1. Leave me a comment on this post once you do, so I don’t have to hunt you down. I will link to your reviews during my weekly recaps.
- Commit to donate a penny for every single page that I read during September (excluding picture books and easy readers).
- Commit to donate 50 cents for every single post I publish during September.
- Commit to donate a penny for every page I read AND 50 cents for every single post I publish.
- And heck, if you want to write the post, put the button in your sidebar, comment on my blog, read a book, and sponsor me in my reading and blogging, then I won’t stop you!
