No this isn’t one of those things where I ask you to support my site with a donation or buy raffle tickets
Readers from early on here will remember back in November I reported on some local bloggers (Cincinnati Blog and Cincinnati Beacon) throwing down challenges to other bloggers to raise money for the FreeStore FoodBank. The FreeStore does a lot of great things locally to help families in need.
With so many people out of jobs, I have been fortunate to keep working. So while I am by no means a rich guy, I felt it was important to do something to help others. The FreeStore is a great beneficiary because donors tend to forget about them unless there is a holiday coming up. So in honor of the launch of my new website URL, beartoons.com, and the celebration of another decade type birthday milestone this month, I am issuing this challenge to help raise money. I will donate the indicated amount for each thing that you do in the month of June:
$10 – Add http://beartoons.com to your blog roll (for those who don’t already have it)
$10 – Blog about my challenge to your readers and link back to this entry in your post – http://beartoons.com/2009/06/01/beartoonscharitydrive/
$2 – Follow me via TWITTER updates. (if you aren’t already)
$2 – For each Tweet that you include a link back to this challenge (once per day up to 5x)
If you add me to your blog roll, include this challenge in a post, or start following me via twitter because of this post please indicate in the comments. If you tweet, just make sure to put @bearmancartoons somewhere in it and I’ll be able to account for it.
I am going to give a minimum of $100 so if no one takes me up on the challenge, at least someone will benefit with a maximum I am looking to do is $500, which I hope you will help me achieve. I’ll post a weekly update of the money raised and who did what to raise the money with links back to your site if applicable.
