There's a 24-hour Blogathon going on for charity

This morning at 6 a.m. Pacific Time, a Blogathon began. A Blogathon is a charity event, where bloggers sign up ahead of time, and promise to blog for 24 hours, making a new post approximately every 30 minutes.

I stumbled upon this about half an hour ago at a site called Philly Transplant because he'd just posted something about Masons and the Shrine.

While I was reading that, a new article popped up with a trivia question, so I answered that.

No way I'm gonna sit up the next 10 1/2 hours and watch him add new posts every 30 minutes, but I will drop by again from time to time to see what's shakin'.

Somehow in all this they're raising money for charity. Philly Transplant's charity is Shrine Children's Hospitals. Sparky Duck chose the Shriners Hospitals as his charity because his wife benefited from a Shrine hospital's care when she was a child. Read her story here.

  1. Thank you for the plug. We have been at it since 9am EST and we collect pledges from people because of the sleep we are sacrificing.

    Thanks again
