So far so good, less than 24 hours since the challenge posted we've been featured at numerous weblogs:
Below are the charity-links-for-dollars "Tsunami fundraiser challenge" entries I have counted so far. To be updated as the challenge progresses (read more about the challenge here). This list (properly de-duplicated, should I log someone multiple times) will serve as the final count for the donation. If you've posted and don't show up here after a while (list manually maintained) please send me an instant message or leave a comment:
I've added those detail to my blog.
Really is something special to see your brilliance and generosity spreading across the blogosphere. I really mean it when I say it was you, your post and your idea that somehow allowed me to move on in blogging. I was really stuck until I hit upon your post last night.
What a fantastic idea! I've been wracking my brain, trying to think of an effective way to encourage others to help out. Sending in a donation just didn't seem like enough to me. I wonder if the aide organizations track their website traffic well enough to tell if bloggers are significantly helping.
Way cool! Very generous of you.
Hi... I have added the links into my humble little blog. Thanks! May you be blessed richly as you give and serve.
Posted the links on my main page.
Count us in! as we all know from little things huge things grow ...
Ram Dass would have loved digital waves: There are two waves drifting along in the ocean, one a bit bigger than the other. The bigger wave suddenly becomes very sad and upset. The smaller wave asks what's wrong. "You don't want to know," the bigger wave says. "What is it?" the small wave asks. "No - really - it's too terrible. If you knew what I knew, you'd never be happy." The small wave persists. Finally the big wave explains: "You can't see it, but I can see that, not too far from here, all of the waves are crashing on the shore. We are going to disappear." The small wave says," I can make you happy with just six words, but you have to listen very carefully to them." The big wave doesn't believe it -- what does the small wave know that he doesn't -- but he's desperate. After a while of doubting and mocking the small wave, the big wave finally gives in, and asks the small wave to tell him. And so the small wave says: "You're not a wave, you're water."
Why not just donate $500?
Mike: Because I already donated 150$ and thought that this way, if things work out, thousands of blog readers all over the world will find information on how to donate, hopefully yielding tens or hundred times more donations than just little me chipping in my money. From the response I've gotten it seems like this challenge has kicked off a lot donations by other bloggers, plus of course form their readers.
I had a little bit of trouble publishing the links on my photoblog, but I will republish later if I have time playing with CSS. I did publish it also on my personal weblog if you'd like to replace the Still Memory link with this one for the time being.
Thank you for the initiative and hopefully more links will be added!
Hi, I left yesterday a message and asked you to replace Still Memory with Riri's Braindump link instead. Please, the entry in Still Memory does NOT exist.
Kudos for your idea.I am in. Thanks.
I've posted it on my blog. Thanks for doing this for the victims. I appreciate it. And I'm sure the family of an fellow student I know who died would appreciate it too.
