Delurk for Haiti



I know you're out there -- you readers who come here faithfully and read whatever it is that I'm saying or ranting about or showing or screaming. And I thank you for your readership, because let's face it -- bloggers do like an audience. And I love seeing that there are hundreds of you each day. That astounds me and encourages me and I couldn't even begin to explain what the community has meant to me (and I'm speaking, too, here, to those of you whom I know and love and share so much -- you know who you are!).

There is such a thing as Delurking Day which in blogger parlance means that you're encouraged to come out of the closet and comment. The word delurk is somewhat unsavory, though, and I think I missed the official day, so here's what I'm going to do.

If you delurk with a comment on my blog from now until Friday, January 22, I will give $1 to Partners in Health for relief efforts in Haiti. Partners in Health is the organization started by the amazing Dr. Paul Farmer over twenty years ago.

So delurk yourself, write a comment (you can use a fake name if you're really shy!) and contribute to the Haitian relief efforts! 


( Even though I'd love to know who's out there, I'll be donating anyway!)

  1. Can't wait to read how you feel about Scott Brown and what this does to the "hope" honeymoon.

  2. Well, here's my comment and my commitment. I will pop by as often as I can. It's the least I can do for that sister nation. Many thanks for your initiative.

    Greetings from London.

    I am a new reader to your blog and I have to say that I am very impressed - both with your impressive writing and your equally impressive parenting skills.

    You are an inspiration to mothers everywhere - myself included - way to go!

  20. Hi, it's Carolyn. I've never posted before and just this week learned how to keep an icon on my toolbar to get to your blog -- and those of Grace's teachers -- easily! Keep writing and thanks for donating. I loved reading Mountains Beyond Mountains. Libby Current Russler recommended it to me.

  21. Love this. I should pay more attention to my stats.
    PS You could always consider the south of Switzerland, where they speak Italian:)
