Apparently it’s National Delurking Week in the blog world – honestly, I have no idea who comes up with these, or if it’s even real, but I’ve been looking for a good reason to ask all you readers to take a moment and leave a comment.
So here’s some incentive, this week only (starting today, Jan. 6, until Monday, Jan. 12) I will donate:
- $1 for every comment we receive – regardless of which post or page it’s left on (Spam comments don’t apply).
- $2 for new photos submitted to the gallery (if your kid is already featured in the gallery, sorry, you’ll just have to get the donation through commenting).
Donations will go to Unite for Sight. A charity that works locally and internationally to improve eye health and eliminate preventable blindness and eliminate barriers to eye care. They work locally in the US to to provide vision screenings and education programs and match those screened with free health coverage programs so that they can receive a complete eye exam by an eye doctor. Internationally, they provide community-based screening programs in rural villages, where eye doctors diagnose and treat eye disease in the field, and surgical patients are brought to the eye clinic for surgery. You can read more about Unite for Sight on their web page.
So leave a comment!
Update, January 13, 2009: Thanks to everyone for leaving comments and sending in pictures. We had 35 comments in the past week, and 3 new pictures added to the photo gallery. That means that $41 will be donated to Unite for Sight.
