Bloggers without Borders was created as a way to reach across the blogosphere and help those in need.
“Bloggers without Borders (BwoB) is a blogger-based charity whose mission is to help people—bloggers and readers alike—by harnessing the good will of the blogging community. Its founders are Maggy Keet of ThreeManyCooks, Erika Pineda-Ghanny of The Ivory Hut, and Aimee Wimbush-Bourque of Simple Bites. BwoB officially launches in July 2011.”
Sparked by the recent devastating tornadoes that have ravaged the midwest and south, the project has started early. You can read about those who will be receiving this first round of donations in Joplin, MO here and Etna/Denning, AR here. The proceeds will be given directly to victims to use as needed most. The total will be split between both areas, with a goal to raise $2,000 total ($1,000 for each). The money collected is distributed directly to victims (I really like this aspect of BwoB).
Offering help in any way, shape, or form is important. If you would like to donate through Bloggers without Borders, just click on the button below or in the right-hand column.
