I have decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from my blogs and web sites to charity. I have sponsered Hama, a 9 year-old boy from Niger, Africa. My monthly sponsorship donation contributes to the building of wells, medical clinics, schools, and more.
I think that everyone who earns a little money from their blogs and web sites should donate a portion of that money to charity. Bloggers and webmasters can make a difference. I encourage other to do the same - and to spread the word to others. Bloggers have a loud collective voice. Together we can use that voice to make a difference in the world. Technorati now tracks 1,000,000 blogs. If only 10% of those blogs donate $1 a day, collectively we could donate over $35 million to worthwhile causes each year.
You can sponsor a child like Hama for about $1 a day. Can you afford $1 a day? Click here to visit Plan International and choose your country of origin in the yellow box on the right side of the page. If you are in the United States, click here. Please sponsor a child like Hama and then be sure to blog about it. Also, place a small photo of your sponsored child in the sidebar of your blog, along with information to encourage others to donate. Bloggers can make a difference in many ways - I think that this is one of the most important ways of all.
