A couple of days ago I launched a blogging initiative asking ten Australian bloggers to write a special post as a tribute to the entrepreneurial poor. In return, Incentive House will be making a donation of $100 per post towards an Opportunity International microfinance program in the Philippines, to help women out of poverty.
So far three amazing people have joined in the challenge by writing ‘Tribute” posts – that’s $300 raised by these bloggers in 3 days for women in poverty! Wonderful.
Incentive House are willing to donate $700 more dollars but I’m looking for seven more Aussie bloggers to unite for women living in poverty over the next two days – simply write a post before midnight Tuesday (31st March) and Incentive House will donate $100 towards this special project. Will you join in?
(oh and meanwhile, my laptop appears to be no more, so expect me to be quiet on the interwebs for a little bit….I will be watching you from afar, probably on my iPod somehow, somewhere!!)
Update 31 March: You did it! Together we raised $1300 in funds towards this project. And another US$200 was donated in the last 24 hours on my Chipin. You are amazing people!!
