Blogust is a first-of-its-kind blog relay for good that is bringing together 31 of the most influential online voices in the country to change the world through blogging. Each day throughout the month of August, one influencer will post about someone that inspires them and then “pass the baton” to another blogger for the following day. The twist is this: every comment on a Blogust post will initiate a $20 donation (up to $200,000*) to help immunize a child in a developing country. View the calendar!
You have the ability to make a real impact by joining the conversation. For every comment made on posts that are part of the relay, $20 will be donated to Shot@Life, to help provide a child in a developing country a lifetime immunity from some of the world’s deadliest diseases.* With just a comment on a blog, anyone can help save a child’s life.
The response to Blogust has been incredible. We reached our initial goal of 1,500 comments ($30,000 that was made available for this blog relay, which will now give 1,500 children a shot at life) by day 6! Thanks to you - and the remarkable response to Blogust - you've inspired an additional donor to make a generous pledge of $170,000 to this amazing blog relay and what it can achieve this month.
If you help us reach this new target, together we can provide life-saving vaccines to help protect a total of 10,000 children in developing countries against some of the deadliest diseases!
And to help save even more children’s lives through Blogust, world-renowned photographer and Shot@Life Global Advocate, Anne Geddes, launched a fundraiser on Crowdrise to help raise more money.
Your comments count. And your donations, large and small, and the actions of the whole community, including our dear friend Anne Geddes, have helped inspire this amazing response.
This response is an amazing tribute to you. While we were already inspired when you helped us reach our initial goal of $30,000, we are equally as inspired knowing you will help us reach this new goal. Keep posting. Keep donating. Tell your friends about Blogust. Our actions together can make a huge impact....and all of it together tells an extraordinary story of celebrating each other and helping create a better world.
* Up to $200,000, plus additional comments as matched by the Anne Geddes Crowdrise fundraiser
