Bloggers Making a Difference Online
It’s really great to see a growing trend with bloggers running contests to not just benefit themselves, but to benefit some great causes that need a helping hand. Here are a few bloggers that have done just that:
Are You A Breast Man or Woman?
Leo Chiang is a fellow breast afficianado and as a result of this hobby, he has decided to support his friend Darla in the CIBC Run for the Cure. This event is in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Leo has also sweetened the pot by putting everyone that donates a $25.00 donation into a draw for a Cryptic Studios T-Shirt and a copy of the game City of Villains by Cryptic Studios. If you like boobs and games, this is definitely the right contest and cause for you. Enter Now!
Derek Semmler Likes Boobs Too
Derek Semmler also has a strong love of breasts. He’s helping Leo out with his contest by giving away T-Shirts. All you have to do is reply to this post on his blog and he’ll put you in the draw. His goal is to get 100 entries so that he can give a $100 donation (that’s 1 dollar for every entry) to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation.
Forgetting You Love Boobs is a Horrible Thing…
Derrich never wants anyone to wake one day not remembering their friends and family and somewhere on that list, what to do if some attractive boobs walk by. He wants you to become the dirtiest old man that you can be and that’s why he’s doing the Alzheimer’s Association Memory Walk. Derrich signed up to be a Team Captain and if you can help him out he can definitely use your help.
I learned that the key to giving is to start with something that you are truly passionate about. I’m not a wiz at this and I was hardly the UNICEF poster boy at Halloween so giving away my money and time is definitely something that I’m not used to. However, it is something I want to be remembered for. For example, Leo likes boobs, Derek likes them too, and Derrich doesn’t want to ever forget he likes them. Why the heck not? All you have to do is start. Run a small contest and start putting up the donation on your own. Set a limit you’re comfortable with.
Eventually, you can kick it up a notch and start asking for others to pitch in. Sometimes you don’t have to ask if people see that what you are doing is for a great cause that they believe in too like in my last contest.
Leo, Derek, Derrich…thanks for your commitment to making a difference online! Bravo! 😀
