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!)
