Starting Saturday, July 28, 2007, hundreds of blogs across the world will unite and blog continuously for 24 hours to help support various charities.
Blogathon is an annual event where bloggers choose a charity (a 501(c)(3) organization) to support. Each blogger must post something every 30 minutes for the entire 24-hour period beginning on July 29, 2006, at 9:00 AM EST. In turn, anyone can sponsor a blog that is participating. A sponsorship is basically a pledge to donate money to that blog's charity. You know your money is safe because any money you pledge is given directly to the charity itself, not to the blogger or the Blogathon website.
The Smarmy Carny is participating in Blogathon for the second year. This time around, this blog will support a charity called One Economy Corporation. One Economy is a charity that helps close the technology gap for lower-income people. Their Bring IT Home campaign brought broadband internet access to 200,000 low-income people. They also run The Beehive, a website aimed at low-income families and individuals. To find out more about One Economy Corporation, head over to The Smarmy Carny's Blogathon page. Also be sure to read the blog during the Blogathon and find out much more detailed information on One Economy's efforts!
