Blog for Relief, Day 2

Blog for Relief, Day 2

The official Blog for Relief Day has been expanded into Blog for Relief Weekend. Bloggers across the spectrum are taking time to encourage their readers to contribute to a relief agency of their choice for victims of Hurricane Katrina.

Here’s what to do:

  1. Pick a charity. (I recommend either Catholic Charities or the Knights of Columbus.)

  2. Make a donation, by phone, by mail, or by Internet.

  3. Go to this page and log your contribution.

Let the blogosphere’s heart show through. Let people see we’re not just a bunch of blowhards, using up air and doing nothing about the problems of the world. I know that the vast majority of you have probably already given or plan to give, so let your gift also be a witness to your Catholic faith in action.

So far, four of you have logged contributions as coming from Bettnet readers and I applaud all of you for your generosity. All told, blog readers have donated nearly $500,000. That’s about half of what some major American corporations have given. Bravo! Let blogs show they can do more than just complain.

More information on the Blog for Relief Day is available at Instapundit and TTLB.

  • Your own name doesn’t go on the contribution list. It’s a means of encouraging others to give: “Look how many others have given. This is a real big effort. Maybe you should join in too.”

    I don’t think most people are doing this as a way of getting recognition and receiving accolades.
