...I had to relent. (Link to the Freestore Foodbank)
Mainly, though because I believe in the cause and am dramatically impressed with the outpouring of support that people have shown for this. And I think people comign together to do something good is an amazing and inspiring thing.
The reason I haven't participated yet is that, though I have a lot of hits every day, I don't have an active readership base. That is, with a few exceptions (B
oy inthe Floppy Hat, the Seeker, Jere, Miss Chanak, my mom, etc.), I don't get a lot of interaction with people who read my blog, and I'm concerned that no one will do anything.
So, now I'm asking two things:
TO THE OTHER GAY BLOGGERS IN TOWN: For each of you that blog the Battle of the Blogs in Cincinnati, I will donated $10 to the Freestore Foodbank (I'm poor, I don't have $200 on hand ready should I get a lot of response like Bearman, who is now blogrolled, I'm limiting it to $100). There must be two things: q) you MUST have me blogrolled :-) (I'm such a whore), and 2) you must tell me that you've blogged it and link to the blog (and you have to be an LGBT or friendly blogger -- and you can be an out of towner). This is in the hopes that blogge
rs with more active readership, or who have a more extensive network of people who engage in discussion/etc. will help out.
TO ALL OF MY OTHER READERS IN TOWN AND ABROAD: Please please please donate by this easy online form. And all of you will be getting emails. If you do donate, make sure you post a comment and let me know.
Oh, and I have a lot of canned vegetables. They are going. Oh, and I am putting the word out to school. So, um, yea.
UPDATE: I am inviting all of you to bring me canned and boxed goods. I will place boxes at work and at school. Hopefully it's not too late to start this little campaign. :-) The picture below is my personal donation from my own closet. Hey, I'm poor. I don't have a lot -- HA!
When is this shindig over and when are going to do the big delivery?
