One Year of Firsts: Blog for a Cause

Day 22



    Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. ~William James

    Welcome to Blog for the Cause. Today for the first time, I "sold out"my blog in exchange for donations to Haiti. Some wonderful folks responded to my challenge on our NBC10 Telethon for Haiti early this morning: Give a hundred dollars to be featured on "One Year of Firsts."

    Debbie Long called in first with a generous donation of $200.00 on behalf of the Montgomery CountyParalegal Association. Here's a picture of  their 2009 Board of Directors. Thank you!

    Pete Caspronova also called in at the same time to meet the challenge. He donated $100.00 on behalf of Green Side Up Landscaping in Pottstown.
    And Alden Washington from Washington Boxing Academy in Ardmore says he's a big fan of the blog. Thank you. And thanks for your $100.00 contribution.
    This is a little behind the scenes of the telethon with Justin Pizzi at around 6am:

    Maybe, it's a First for You to make a donation. You can call NBC10 todayat 1-877-622-9228 to donate to the Red Cross for the Haiti Relief Mission. If you make a hundred dollar donation and you mention this blog I'll give you a "shout out" here.  No matter what you donate today it all helps.
