Haitian relief efforts

LAST DAY TO COMMENT!

A lovely member of several writing groups I participate in has pledged a dollar to Doctors without Borders for every comment left on her blog from now until Friday.

Thank you for paying it forward, and you've also inspired me to pledge the same, via this blog. I also will donate a dollar (up to $100 dollars) for every comment left here. I will post the final receipt from the donations next Monday.

Spread the word, my friends!

*UPDATE*
Not even 12 hours into this "comment-athon" we're at $20. Additionally, my writing colleague, John Ettorre, has pledged to match funds to $25.00. I am truly overjoyed and humbled by the support everyone is showing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

**UPDATE #2**
Tomorrow is the last day, we're about halfway to my full pledge... I've never had so much fun giving money away. Help me reach the full amount and tell your friends to come sign!

    That's a great idea! And comments are all I can give now that I've already donated to MSF - Médecins sans Frontières (Docs w/out Borders)

  13. some amazing people come forth in the hardest of times, the people of Haiti had nothing to start with, now look at their lives, those who are left.
    not enough can be done for them.

  14. I think this is a great way for those who can't afford to give monetaryly to contribute in some kind of way. My family also gives to YELEHAITI it's Wyclef's organization he is a wonderful humanitarian who have always given to the people of Haiti. I think doctors without borders are just as great thank you BLESS YOU!
