It's National Delurking Day! Woohoo!
I ask whoever comes to visit my blog today, whether you usually comment or just lurk in the background wondering when I will ever learn to use a hairdryer (answer: NEVER!), to say hello in the comments and tell me about your favorite charity, perhaps one I don't know well (bonus points if you give me the URL).
In return, I pledge to donate $1 for every comment received by midnight Friday January 15th to the Red Cross effort to support the Haitian people. And I pledge to donate another $1 for every comment to one of the cool charities that you fine, fine people tell me about (I get to pick! FUN!).
One of my favorite charities is Raising a Reader. http://www.raisingareader.org/. They encourage parents to read daily to their children and provide bookbags with a rotating bunch of books for the kids to take home. They call it "book cuddling" which is SO APT. I wish I could cuddle with a book RIGHT NOW.
