Bloggers Unite: A Fundraising Giveaway Event
Personally, I haven't been able to shake the images. I think about these people day and night. Sometimes, when doing the simplest of tasks, they come to mind. Times like when I'm going to the bathroom and realize for many of my brothers and sisters in the Philippines, there are no bathrooms. I reach to pull the covers up on the bed and think, There are no covers... there are no beds. I take it further and think, There are no rooms to put beds in. Quite honestly, it's been difficult to not become extremely depressed by it all. 650,000 without homes. 650,000!!! Unfathomable.
As bloggers, we thought we could help these people by throwing this huge fundraising giveaway -- a way we are all very familiar with. We have already raised $515 from this event and are continuing to receive more donations through GoGetFunding.com. There will be a turnover of funds to legitimate organizations that buy, repack, and hand out relief goods directly to the victims. You can visit one of the host blogs for updates on the fund transfer in about a week or two.
Seven (7) winners will receive any of the prizes below worth over $700 in total! Special thanks to the amazing sponsors of this event: Newman’s Own Organics, Staples Canada, Guylian Chocolates, SmartSilk, Aroma Delights, FragranceNet, UNILAB Philippines, Oloves, and all participating bloggers.
