Day 22 Of Firsts: Blog for the Cause

22 Jan

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 NBC 10 Telethon for Haiti early this morning: Give a hundred dollars to be featured on “one year of firsts.com”. 

Debbie Long called in first with a generous donation of $200.00 on behalf of the Montgomery County Paralegal 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. Here’s a link to their website:  http://www.greensideupllc.com/  
 
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.  http://www.washingtonboxingacadamy.com/credentials.html
 
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 NBC 10 today at 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. 

A late ad: My friend Pattie Wexler pledged 200 dollars. Thanks for answering the challenge.   If you don’t get an answer you can make a donation at the american red ross website. http://bit.ly/6YbzyX
