BlogCatalog Bloggers for Good Fundraising Challenge

On Friday, I received the invitation enclosed below. I not only accepted it, I've bookmarked, subscribed to the newsletter, and registered to generate support for my courses and Arts-in-Education projects.

Now I am also extending the invitation to you.

Be Part of Blogging History on Monday, May 28th

This Monday, May 28th, join thousands of bloggers and use your blog to benefit, a non-profit Web site that brings teachers and donors together to fund specific student projects that range from "Magical Math Centers" to "Cooking Across the Curriculum."

BlogCatalog would like to challenge you to join the blogging community and use your blog to draw attention to and raise funds for this underserved non-profit organization that does so much good for our children and our schools.

To participate, all you need do is:

The goal is to raise $25,000 for schools around the country, many of which are in New Orleans. Our hope is that we will blow this goal away and raise far more money. If we do we will have set a precedent that will enable the blogging community to do a bunch of good for other causes in the future.

We truly hope you will join us and use your blog as a tool for good and set an example for others of the the real value of online social communities.

Kind Regards,
