It is once again International Delurking Week in the blog world – that’s the week when bloggers try to encourage their readers to comment and let us know you’re reading. As with last year, I’m providing some incentives during the week to encourage you to comment.
For the next 7 days, that’s the very end of today, January 4 through Tuesday, January 12, I will donate:
- $1 for every comment you leave – regardless of which post or page it’s left on (spam comments don’t apply). I’ll try to make it easier on you by posting a lot during the week.
- $2 for new photos submitted to the gallery (if your kid is already featured in the gallery, sorry, you’ll just have to get the donation through commenting). Email the photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- $2 for any “Your stories…” post submissions. Email your story to email@example.com.
This year, donations will go to ORBIS International, an organization whose mission is to “eliminate avoidable blindness in developing countries by strengthening the capacity of our local eye health partners to prevent and treat avoidable blindness.” ORBIS works with local partners such as hospitals, universities, and health departments to provide quality eye care. All projects are geared towards sustainability so that activities can continue after ORBIS assistance has ended. You can find out more about ORBIS at their blog and their website, and read about some of their success stories.
I’ll post an update on funds raised each day on the sidebar.
So leave a comment!
