Blog For A Cure

Three questions.

Do you want to gain new followers for your blog?
Do you want to help eradicate cancer?
Can you spare $1.00?

If so, then read on.

On Monday, Sept 28- Friday, Oct 2, 2009, Who Knew? Reviews will be hosting the first Annual Blog For A Cure, which is a new way to use social media to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, while making new connections and broadening our social media network.

Blood cancers are an aggressive and stealthy enemy. They can and will strike people of all ages, health status, ethnicity, and sex unless we rally together and support the research that is needed to treat and prevent them.

I have organized this campaign in honor of a dear family member and fellow young mom who has recently been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin Lymphoma and is now fighting for her life. I am sure that each and every one of us can say we know someone who has been affected by these devastating, indiscriminate diseases. Together, we can use our most accessible resource, the internet, to help fight the battle.

It’s pretty simple:

· On September 28th, head over to Who Knew? Reviews, and click on the button to donate $1.00 to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. If you can donate more, feel free to do so, but the minimum to participate is $1.00.

· Then, sign in to Mr. Linky which will be active on the blog at midnight, Sept. 25th. Cruise the list of other participants, visiting a minimum of 5 blogs.

· Click “follow” when you get to those blogs. For each new blog follower that you get, return the “follow”. Feel free to visit and follow each and every other participant that signs in to Mr. Linky- think how many new followers you will receive!

· Feel free to check back all week long to meet new bloggers, and gain new followers!

· On September 28th, post something about the Blog For A Cure Blog Party on your own blog, including the link: http://www.whoknewreviews.blogspot.com/.

Feel free to copy and paste this text, and encourage all of your blog readers to do the same.

If you do not want to donate, you can still help by blogging, tweeting, and posting on Facebook about this event, to help us spread the word and raise as much money as possible. Just imagine what a difference we could all make, if we all just donated ONE dollar. Just think about it.

Oh, and yes, there will be prizes. Every hour throughout the day on September 28th, I will post a new giveaway on Who Knew? Reviews. Winners will receive prizes from Kolcraft, StephieMc Designs, La Plates, Orglamix mineral makeup, Krizzy Designs, and Boojiboo Aprons as well as a few other prizes TBA. There will also be a prize for the person who refers the most participants. When you get to the main link-up post, leave a comment on the with the name of the blogger who told you about the blog party. The blogger who refers the most participants will receive a special, personalized gift from Stephie Mc Designs. If you are interested in promoting your business or blog, and would like to sponsor a prize, please contact me at lanik58@yahoo.com.

I'm most certainly going to consider the Blog For a Cure thing. The only reason I'm hesitant is because I use my bank card as a credit card, and I'm always reluctant to put that information online... Would it be possible to send cash? Sorry if I missed that in your description of it.

Thanks for posing about this! =]

Even though I know you are outta town, I still come here every day to see if somehow you have magically posted something. You are in a magical place and I don't doubt that you could do it. It will be nice to have you back tomorrow.
